I met Travis when I was a technician supporting the MassComp (flutter) computer systems at EAFB.  We were both CSC employees at that time.  Over the course of the years, I got to ‘know’ Travis.  We were never what you’d call ‘close’.  Still.  I liked Travis immensely.  He was one of those people who treated even an acquaintance as if he’d known you forever.  I got the impression that he wore his heart on his sleeve, and the openness and friendliness that were on the surface ran all the way through him.  He was genuine, didn’t seem as if he hid a thing.  I don’t think he knew how.  He was one of those people—at least for me—who when I saw him I could not keep from smiling.  That’s how I remember him now, with that same smile in my heart.  It sounds corny, but knowing guys like Travis make the rest of us better people.  My sincerest condolences to you and the family.  You are all, including Travis, in my prayers.
