October 29,1977-April 17,2013
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Travis, a loving husband and devoted father. Travis was diagnosed with brain Cancer in November, 2012. After a courageous battle, Trav became our guardian angel on April 17, 2013.
Pre-deceased by brother-in-law, Clint Coleman, in February. Survived by, wife, Sandy, daughters Abigail and Haylee. Parents, Ryon and Judy Guedes, sister, Margot (Rob) Knight, brother Roger (Rae-Anne) Guedes, Father and Mother in-law, Wayne and Gwen Coleman, sister-in-laws Coree (John) Girard, Carrie Coleman, 8 nieces and nephews and our entire Salt Spring Fire Rescue family.
Trav has touched and influenced so many lives in the short 35 years we were blessed to have him. He found his calling when he joined the Salt Spring Fire Rescue as a volunteer in 2004. He quickly realized his passion was for serving the community and made the decision to work towards being a full time firefighter, achieving that goal in 2006.
We would like to send a heartfelt thank-you to Karen, Gale, Leanne, Cathy, Ede, Karen, Izzy, Bryan, Cami, Shannon and all the incredible staff at Lady Minto Hospital. As well as my deepest gratitude to Jean and Dr. Ron Reznick for their medical and personal support over the last few months.
A memorial service will be held Sunday, April 28 at 1:00 at GISS, 232 Rainbow Rd, SSI.
