Travis Morris

March 17, 1985 — March 18, 2023

Travis Dean Morris was born on Saint Patrick’s Day in 1985 in Abilene, Texas.

 

He was the first grandson on the Hagler side and loved being with his Granddaddy. He was the first grandchild allowed to not only touch, but sit on the full body brown bear mount Dean Hagler had previously deemed untouchable.

 

Travis was a loving big brother and paved the way for his siblings. They followed him to Boy Scouts, tae-kwon-do, roller blading and all the other cool things big brothers do. At an early age, he found a love for music. You could easily find him strumming his guitar to the tune of George Straight, Garth Brooks, Led Zepplin and Joe Satriani. Travis graduated from Wylie High School in 2003. He took home a state tennis championship during high school and played one year at HSU before deciding to concentrate on music. He played in multiple bands through college and, while he didn’t always love the limelight, he always enjoyed playing for his friends and family.

 

After finishing the music program at South Plains College, he moved to Austin and began a career as a Realtor. He loved paddle boarding on Barton Springs in Austin, playing his guitar, tennis, and snow skiing. He loved helping people, whether it was feeding the homeless, scrounging his car for change to hand out, or just sitting and talking with someone; if they were in need, he would go out of his way to help. He enjoyed visiting his niece and nephews and would always be teaching them to play guitar, chess and other games, and loved to paint with them. Most of all, Travis loved the Lord. He built his life based on faith in God. His family’s hope is that his life and death will give hope and life to others searching for Jesus.

 

While his time on earth was cut short, he made a big impact. He will be missed dearly by his parents, Robby and Deana Morris; his brother, Trent Morris and wife Audrey; his sister, Charlee Templeton and husband Addison; his niece and three nephews, Tatum, Cope, Tripp, Ford; and numerous family members and friends. There will be a celebration of life service on Tuesday, March 28th at 3:30 at Beltway Park South.
