Travis John Frassetto
Travis our beloved son, who had such a beautiful kind loving soul, has left us to be in heaven with his beautiful sister Kristy. On Thursday January 30th, he died unexpectedly a St. Elizabeth's hospital. All our hearts are again broken.
Travis was born on July 14th 1991 to Lisa and Jay, the 2nd of three beautiful children. He was always such a happy and loving child. He grew up to be such a wonderful young man. He had a kind loving selfless heart.
Travis loved sports and competition, but more specifically wrestling. He started in kindergarten moving on through high school. He worked hard at winning and earned numerous medals. ,
But Trav's true love was racing motocross, spanning many years starting at age 6 all the way through age 18. He was a racer who had an extreme determination with a truly focused competitive spirit. He was quite the site to behold, leaving most, if not all his competitors in his tracks. He went on to win numerous state championships. His "motocross family" was such a huge part of his life. With his big brother Jesse, who raced just as fiercely alongside Trav, competed nationally as well traveling nationwide. They qualified for Loretta Lynn national motocross races held in Tennessee. Together, they lived and breathed the sport.
Travis graduated from Kaukauna high school in 2008. After working at various jobs and positions, his future plans were to return to school. He was a hard worker who loved working with his hands.
His life, at age 22 was tragically cut short. We shall hold his memory in our hearts forever.
Travis is survived by his parents, Lisa (Bruce) Brum, Jay (Carleen) Frassetto and his big brother Jesse; step-brothers: Peyton, Garret and step-sister, Janell.

Travy boy we will love you forever. Losing you has left a huge hole in our hearts, a big empty spot. You were so loved and admired by so many people. Your kindness, your big warm, soft heart, your beautiful genuine smile whenever you saw someone was always present. Your close friends, Ben, Caleb and Jedadiah said there was nothing you wouldn't do for any of them. You were the best friend anyone could ask for. They said you would drop anything you were doing if they called and needed something. They said you always took on their problems and tried to help and heal them. You were always there for them and anyone you loved. Everyone says your hugs were the best! You didn't just tap someone on the back, you hugged them,tightly and with a genuine love and concern that came from deep within your big, warm golden heart. Your wonderful laugh that was so contagious and sense of humor will also be missed. Now may the arms of Jesus and Kristy Babe wrap around you, comfort and love you like you did for the people that you loved here on earth.
Trav, we will forever hold you close in our hearts. "Once we dropped a tear in the ocean. When we find it is when will stop loving you."
Until we meet again.
Love forever, your family
