It was Nov. 13 when my dear husband, Terry Travis, fell asleep in death. We were married 50 years and had three wonderful children, Eric, Dustin and Terrell, along with two beautiful grandchildren, Alyza and Rylee.
Terry was born Sept. 25, 1952, in Merrill, Wis. He was the youngest of nine children and is survived by his twin brother, Michael Travis, of Wausau, Wis., and a sister, Karen Finner, of Dorchester, Wis.
Terry was preceded in death by his parents, sisters, Kathy, Nancy, Mary, and brothers, Dave, Ronnie and Dan.
You may remember Terry and his brother Mick, who made up Travis Brothers Painting. They worked in the area of central Wisconsin and may have painted or stained your home or cottage. They worked together for many years.
In Dec. of 1970, Terry became a Jehovah’s Witness. Perhaps you remember him visiting your home and talking with you about God’s Kingdom and the many blessings it will bring to the human family. It will establish the peace on earth.
Terry enjoyed fishing, pontooning and spending time with family and friends. He had a humorous side and could make people laugh by his use of jokes, stories, one-liners and the way he told them.
Terry would often look at the stars and the vastness of the universe and be in awe.
How do you convey someone’s worth and what they meant to you and others in only a few words?
Terry loved life! He was very kind, loving, funny and thoughtful. For us who knew and loved him, he will be missed.
