This might be wrong but I didn’t know Travis. I was looking for my aunts obituary and for some reason was moved by Travis’ passing. Love and prayers to his family and friends. He was too young to die. God bless Travis and the ones that loved him.

I’m so sorry to hear about Travis’s passing. He was good man, and always had a smile on his face. We played football together in high school, and he had a passion and love for the game that surpassed most our teammates. Years after high school I ran into Travis at a flag football tournament, and he was even better than I remembered him. He will be missed. My prayers are with his mom and little boy.

Where to start? First off Travis Lynn Worley was not my friend, he was my brother. We met in second grade and were friends for life. These last few days have been really rough. Its says to add a memory. Well I have too many I don't know where to start. One memory I have that's special to me is when my wife gave birth to our first child a little girl Travis came up to see her. I had been trying for 30 minutes to give this fussy little lady her bottle. Travis in a way only Travis could says give me that baby. As soon as he took her and spoke to her she quit fussing. Then he took the bottle and as soon as he put to her lips she took it. I used to tell him that made me mad that he fed my baby before but, it was a special moment. Like I said at the beginning Travis Lynn Worley was/is my brother and I will for ever miss him. I love you ole buddy. Fly high 82 fly high.
