On the evening of February 8th, two weeks before his 14th birthday, Travis gained his angel wings at home in East Helena.
Travis was born in Helena on February 24th, 2006 to Katie and Jason Hernandez.
Travis was a gifted athlete with a passion for hockey. Travis’ love of hockey started early in life. At the age of three, he was lacing up his first set of skates. Often times we would find him trying to lick the ice through his helmet. He has been a long time teammate on the Helena Bighorns Youth Hockey Team.
In addition to hockey, Travis loved rodeo, soccer, baseball, swimming and Jiu Jitsu. He enjoyed movie dates and road trips with mom; hunting and fishing with dad; hiking and biking with grandma and grandpa, and spending time with family and friends. He also enjoyed campfires and listening to music with friends. Travis was a bright, kind and caring young man with a big heart. He loved his family and friends, and was a ray of sunshine to everyone around him. He received many awards at school and took the most pride in his work as a conflict manager at Kessler Elementary.
Travis is survived by his parents, Katie and Jason Hernandez; his brother Trevor; maternal grandparents Mike and Willa Sheard; maternal great grandma Louise Wilson; paternal grandpa Rueben Hernandez and paternal great grandpa Al Frezzette.
