He graduated from Amon Carter-Riverside High School in 1974. In 1978, Travis hired on at General Dynamics/Lockheed Martin, he retired in 2009 after 31 years. Many of you knew Travis as “Huggie,” some of his Lockheed buddies, as “Tyrone,” the grandkids as “Pap-Paw Huggie,” to his kids he was “Dad” or “Daddy,” but to all he was a Friend. Travis never met a stranger. It does not matter geographically where he was in the US, he would find someone he knew or make a new friend. He would give his last dollar for someone in need. He loved to talk whether in person or on the call and he left a message, “Give me a call.”  Or do not be surprised he may show up at your front door. He loved the Lord and his family. Both meant so much to him, Travis spoke of them often and told many stories. Travis enjoyed Country music, “Classic” country to be specific, fishing, hunting, being outdoors and sitting in his wooden kitchen chair looking out the window. As we continue his legacy, remembering his laughter, his smile, his candid heart, and his stories, take a moment… you’ll hear his voice.

Darren was loved by any and everyone who met him. Had a heart of gold and always lended a helping hand to whoever needed him. He was a hardworking man, there was rarely a day where family could get him to sit still. He would always say “There’s always something to get done.” and went ahead and did it. He was most definitely one of the funniest people you could ever talk to, just 10 minutes with him would have you holding your side laughing in tears. However, on days he did sit still; he spent his time watching movies and spending quality time with his family. He lived a full life despite all obstacles, and made it a goal to achieve anything he was told he wouldn’t be able to do. He joined the Marine Corp young in life and went on to build and run his own business with his Wife, Son & Grandson.
