After graduating, Travis started working on the family farm. In the early 1970’s, Travis moved to Plainview where he worked for Jimmy Dean. After several years of working for Jimmy Dean, Travis started his career as a long-haul trucker. He moved with his family to Pampa in 1985. Travis drove a truck until 1988, when he became a procurement supervisor for Fluor Daniels Construction. He retired in 1996.

 

During his retirement, Travis spent his time traveling all over the country. He especially liked to visit Ruidoso, New Mexico and Virginia. He would often go visit family during his many trips. Travis also enjoyed fishing, shooting, and play dominos. He could often be found barbecuing and socializing with a cold beer in hand. Travis was a gifted guitar player and singer. He had a love for life that was truly unmatched.
