He always knew how to make others laugh even when they were down he always knew how to make someone's sadness turn into happiness. He was a very good friend and no matter what he always had everybody's heart in place and always had thoughts of good things to happen. He was a great fisherman a great chef and may his smiles warm up everyone's heart who knew him always in my heart mine and soul. Flo

We were so very sad to hear of your loss. Our son went to Provincetown School, and we remember Travis with great fondness. He was always up for everything, so brave and persistent, and a wonderful role model for the other kids. We know he will be deeply missed.

Aunty JoMarie and uncle Jim love you with all our hearts.
I remember the day you were born. So small and frail. But that never stopped you. You had lots of challenges in life. But you always took them on with a smile. You were determined to be a normal kid like everyone else. You could light up a room with that smile. And that laugh was contagious. You loved life. You were always happy go lucky. Loved being around family and friends. I’m so glad to call you my nephew. You are one of a kind. Your a special human being.
Now your in heaven with nana, grandpa and aunty Cindy. Take care of each other. God will watch over you all. God bless you my sweet nephew. Love you xo

We didn't have the opportunity of seeing Travis that often, but when we did, he was always very friendly, upbeat and positive. Have a great memory of him dancing with our daughter Amy at a family wedding. Gone too soon.

I know he had a tough start in life, but I was really glad that he found happiness, and I hope all the family can have comfort in that happiness.

Travis you were the most positive and friendly person I have ever met. Joel loved having you fish with him, we all are still stunned that your gone. Last time we chatted you were saying you wanted to come on our boat for the next blessing of the fleet with you wife and we were like absolutely we would love to have you. You touched the lives of so many people and are missed by all who knew you.

You were a funny person Travis.

I will never forget the memories I had with you in the seafood department and me in the meat department.

We would always joke around about how the company sucks.
You were a hard worker you always got the job done right you always gave a 100%.

You had a lot of skill knowledge when it comes to learning about the different types of fish to catch you were always a awesome tuna catcher.

You were always there for me every time I had a situation. You always told me never to give up on my dreams.

I remember we always used to go to Buncie's to have a beer . I remember one 4th of July me & you were working at night and we always used to get buzed at Jason's those were the funniest times.

I will never forget you Travis you are up there in that luxurious fishing boat with Jesus Christ. ⚜R.I.P ⚜🙏🙏✝️✝️⚜

Though I only knew you slightly, at every meeting you greeted me, like long-lost family, with a big smile and a bigger hug.
Your stories and quick wit will be missed.
Watch over your loved ones and Rest in Peace my friend.
