My memories of Travis include his love of gardening, being a die hard Duke fan, and a great boss at the DOT Road Oil Department. One day at work, he asked me to hand him the squirrel teeth. I am looking around on my desk at a loss as to what he needed. He then pointed to a staple remover and I laughed till I cried. I never use a staple remover without thinking of him. Holding each and every family member up in prayer, Louise Inscoe and family
