Jerry Ralph Travis
September 26, 1943 – November 1, 2020
Jerry Ralph Travis, age 77, of Redding, California passed away on Sunday, November 1, 2020. Jerry was born September 26, 1943 in Ironton, Ohio to Gladys (Webb) and John Travis.

While Jerry was a wood worker for nearly 30 years, he took pride in being a lay minister. He was a kind and sympathetic Christian who prayed for others often and was there when he was needed most. Jerry would spend much time discussing God and preaching. He also enjoyed playing guitar and singing gospel.
He was also the jack of all trades. There was nothing he could not do! From electrical to small engines, Jerry did it all. The one thing he did not do was - travel by plane. He enjoyed taking road trips only for travel.
Jerry was preceded in death by his wife of 47 years, Shirley (Colon) Travis, who passed in 2010; daughter Lori Withrow; father John Travis and mother Gladys; three sisters Wilma Jean Travis, Loretta Fausett and Judy Flathers; and brother Herb Travis.

I was very close to my grandfather, he taught me everything I know about cars, guitars, and women. There was this one time, when he came to visit us in Washington, where he woke me up on a cold winter morning and said, "Hey Josh, let's go find some snow!" So we got up and got all dressed up and took a drive down highway 14 and up a mountain in hopes to find snow. Once we did, we got out, looked around and just took in the beauty around us. I will forever miss you grandpa, and will always be willing to go find snow with you any time you'd like.
