Sometime after school, he began working for the City of Dallas in the sanitation department. On May 1, 1978, he married Terrie Ross. The two shared three children together, before later separating. He moved his family to Fort Worth in 1981, where they stayed for fifteen years. In 1996, the Lesters moved to Pampa. Travis enjoyed fixing mowers and was commonly called the “Lawn Mower Man” by his friends. If he was able, he wanted to fix things himself. Travis was a very handy man.
