He lived a thousand lives in his lifetime. He was a man of vision. A true survivor. Today, he is dancing in heaven without pain, anger, worries, or regrets. We were lucky to call him dad. He will truly be missed.

He leaves behind his wife and best friend of 23 years, Amelia Biggs. A son, Jamie Travis of San Antonio, Texas. A daughter, Wendee and Daryl Doty of Mesquite Texas. Two step daughters, Gwen and Mark Moore of Belleville, AR. Patricia and Steve Goocher of Dardanelle, AR. Several grand children.
