  1. So sad to hear this news. I worked for Cameron’s Liberty facility when Travis was the plant superintendent. Very fair man and had a heart for the employees there. On the few occasions I had to speak with him, each time was pleasant and instructional. I respected him very much. My prayers and condolences go out to the family, and I ask God to comfort them during this time of grief. Travis was a good man, and the world is poorer without him.
