Travis was the best father, brother and uncle our family could ever have had. If you asked anyone that knew Travis well what his biggest accomplishment was they would say his role as a father. He was such a loving, nurturing dad, and the impact he had will be felt for a lifetime. Neiko was his pride and joy, his greatest accomplishment. If you were not lucky enough to have met Travis you only need meet his son Neiko to know who he was. He was a hardworking man who took pride in the work he did. Travis worked for Graphic Ink Co. for his entire adult life and always did the best for Doug, the Graphic Ink family, and their customers.
