Our son, brother and friend Travis Jack Walters passed away all too soon on August 24, 2018. He was born in Kanab, Utah on September 4, 1976 to Lonnie Walters and Sherri Crofts. If you knew Travis you were fortunate enough to know his wicked and funny sense of humor as well as his giving spirit. Always first to offer a helping hand, you could count on him in any situation.
Interested in mechanics at a young age, at 15, he acquired a beat up 1969 Ford Bronco to restore. Through hard work and diligence, he fully restored his “pride and joy” to the envy of many of his friends and acquaintances. Over the years, Travis worked as a skilled mechanic for various companies and took great pride in his work.
Travis attended the University of Southern Utah and became a member of the Sigma Nu Fraternity where he attained a life-long brotherhood with members of that fraternity. In addition to the many pranks and good times, the fraternity brothers also performed various community service projects for the betterment of the community.
In 2001, he married Ari Ching. Together they traveled Europe extensively enjoying the many cultures. Of course, Travis also got to imbibe in the local beer and spirits as well as enjoying the different cuisines. Travis and Ari later divorced.
Travis will be greatly missed by his entire family and his many friends. He loved the outdoors; hunting, hiking, biking and camping were his favorite pastimes. So many who knew him will remember and cherish all of the good times and memories shared with Travis throughout his life.
Travis is survived by his father Lonnie (Ellen) Walters, brother Zach Walters, and countless family members. Preceded in death by his grandparents, mother Sherri Crofts Williams and brother Matt Walters.
