Travis D. Moon, age 69, of Texarkana, Texas passed away peacefully in his home on December 21, 2019.

Mr. Moon was born June 7, 1950 and was raised in Texarkana, Texas. He was a brave and loyal soldier who served his country during Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation Iraqi Freedom. He retired from the United States Army with honors after 35 years of dedicated service.

Travis was a fun loving person who enjoyed life to the fullest and loved playing pranks. He loved to ride motorcycles and to be on the open road. If he wasn’t riding on the open road, you could find him working on a project in his shop. But most of all, he loved spending time with his family.

He is survived by one son, Mitchell Moon and wife, Sherrea Moon of Texarkana, Texas; one sister, Shelba Nicholson and husband, Mark Nicholson of San Antonio, Texas; one brother, Rodney Moon and wife, Linda Moon of Texarkana, Arkansas; one dearly loved grandson, Kyler Moon of Texarkana, Texas, a number of nieces, nephews, other relatives and a host of near and dear friends.
