Not sure what to say?

Well, Trav, this is #62 today! You would be so proud of your family -- everyone is doing their part to carry on the Travis name, creatively and successfully. And having FUN in the process - always an important factor.

We miss the hell out of you -- but we know you're keeping a close eye on your loved ones.

*How about that little grandson Ryder?! Quite the Travis extension!!!

Love you, Big Guy!

Fond memories of teaching you to ride a 2 wheeled bike came back to me, 'Baby Bill', after learning of the death of your mom yesterday. Childhood memories playing football with your dad, of your mom gardening and of you tagging along with Monte and me (Janis) are wonderful memories. I miss having your family as next door neighbors. You were my second family.

Today is a hard one for me Daddy. No day is easy with out you but today I am overwhelmed by the fact that Ryder will never meet the most amazing man I will ever know. Most days I do a good job of keeping the sadness away but I lost the battle to the tears today. I'm playing rugby again and will miss my post-game phone calls on Saturday afternoons and the early Sunday morning wake-up calls when you know I was out with the team the night before. I miss you so much it makes my head spin. ...

Dad- I miss you so much. Thank you for everything you gave me and everything you taught me. I try my best but I am lost without you. I cant believe its been over a year since you passed. It does not get any easier to accept that you are gone. You have a grandson now and he looks so much like you. You would love him. I wish I had hugged you and told you how proud I am to be your son while I could. I love you dad and I'll miss you forever.

another birthday has passed... missed celebrating #59 with Trav and family. Thankful for the memories.

Well, your favorite holiday has just passed (Thanksgiving), and Christmas is right around the corner. We sure do miss you - this time of year especially, when the little boy in you was ever-present. Happy Holidays, Trav... wherever you are, you are always in our hearts. xo

We of the Lowell high school reunion 72/73 heard of his passing. He will be missed, as he was a fun person at lowell high school.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
The Lowell 72/73 commitee featured his picture on the memorial board of class mates fallen.

I remember Bill making his own El Toro sailboat by hand as a young teenager in or our SF neighborhood(Lakeshore). He could build anything even as a kid. He would also take us younger kids to Daly City in his mom's Buick to buy fireworks. A fine guy from a fine family...

thinking of you today, and always...
