It is with great sadness that the family of Richard Wayne Travis of Bloomfield, NB, announces his passing which occurred on September 4, 2019 at his home, in his chair where he was most comfortable. Born in Toronto, ON, on April 7, 1955, he was the son of the late Allison and Irene (Connell) Travis.
Wayne loved the outdoors and enjoyed hunting and fishing whenever he could. In his younger years, he was involved with canoe racing and arm wrestling, in which he won many trophies. Wayne’s nickname was "McGiver" to many of his family and friends as he was known for fixing just about anything.
Wayne is survived by his loving wife, Trisha (Raven) Travis & loving dog, Hoover of Bloomfield, NB; children: Krissy "Boober" Travis (Shane James) of Bloomfield, NB, Adam Travis and his wife Jenna of Southfield, NB, and Jeff Travis and his wife Tanya of Hampton, NB; step-children: Kayla Raven (Mike Edling) and Krista (Jordan) Steane; grandchildren: Conner Brooks, Tristen Travis, Robyn Travis, Cole Travis, Kiera Travis, Rilynn Travis and Brantley Travis; step-grandchildren: Xavier, Parker, Justice, Zander, Everly, Georgia and Margo; siblings: Harold (Carol) Travis, Nancy (Dave) Wheaton, Heather Hensbey, Dwayne Travis, Cecil Travis and Marcelle Travis; as well as many nieces and nephews. Besides his parents, Wayne was predeceased by his granddaughter, Jessica Miller.
