I worked with Travis for several years at the Y. When I had to be there to open each morning at 5am he would always be there to make sure I made it into the building safely. Unselfishly, he would jump at the chance to help anyone at any time. I could go on for several hours with stories we shared happy, sad, spiritual & sometime even debate topics. He was truly a remarkable man who will be extremely missed. Because of our many hours of conversation about his love of the Jesus I know he will be having many wonderful conversations with God! Sending much love, hugs & prayers to his family.

I knew Travis from my time working at the Y. He would hold my kids when they were in the nursery and didn´t want to stop crying. He could always get them to calm down. And, every year, he´d pass out boxes of chocolate covered cherries at Christmas time. He will be missed. Praying for his family.

I loved Mr. Hill... as did my three brothers. I became a PE teacher because of great teachers like him. I burned so many holes in my danskin pants from trying to win those races around the gym and bowling pins, and sliding to avoid the dodgeball out! He was always a bit sensitive to noise at the start of school i thought because he worked loud construction jobs during the summer. I was so proud to serve as a safety patrol person and enjoyed that responsibility. Loved learning how to fold those belts so you could wear it on your belt. We had great music and art also with mrs miller and ms dyer. Hoover was an outstanding elementary school with great teachers. Edie Allen hoover class of 1970. Blessing to Mr. Hill's family

Mr. Hill, when I think of Mr. Hill I think of a patient P.E. Teacher. I was the one that couldn´t climb that silly rope. I was the one that couldn´t get that mile in 12 minutes. Not one time did he belittle me, he would just keep on encouraging me to try again.
The thing that I appreciate is that he knew when my enough was and let me stop.
I didn´t have another P.E. Teacher like him. I can´t imagine the impact he made on the children he taught. When he was out for whatever reason. It was longer than a day, it was almost devastating to me, maybe a few more. He was just kind. In my life at that time, it was just nice to have someone who was kind always and not unpredictable.
He did have to ask me to be quiet.... maybe more than once, or fifteen times.
I pray for you to have peace and comfort that only the Lord can give to you. I wish I could have told him that. He wouldn´t have remembered me. I "graduated" in 1985 whew! Again, my sympathies for all of you

Travis was a great coworker of mine at the Y and also a great friend. I have many fond memories of traveling all over Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Kansas playing golf with him and Hugh. He was a great Christian man and he will be missed my many, myself included. Prayers for the family.

Mr. Hill was a most amazing teacher and person. No one can fill those shoes. Thank you for being you! Hoover class of 1987!
