Stuart Travis

September 1, 1961 ~ December 18, 2015

Stu will be lovingly remembered by his wife and best friend, Joy; sons Michael (Amanda), Jeffrey; parents Howard & Jean; brothers Steve (Gita), Jeff (Brigitte), Keith (Diana); nephews Sean (Cinthya), Chris (Claire), Scott, Steve (Jerusha), and great nephews James, Justin, Brandon & Tyler.  All boys!  He is also survived by many aunts, uncles, cousins, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, friends and of course his furry “little kid”, Molly.

Stu was an amazing husband, father, friend and co-worker.  He was a gentle soul and cared deeply for everyone before himself. We love you and miss you, but you’ll be forever in our hearts. In good times and bad, Stu’s motto was “It’s all good”.

There will be a private family service at the home of Stu & Joy and a drop-in reception in the lower hall at Comox Pentecostal Church from 2-5 pm on Sunday, January 10, 2016.  All are welcome to come and share a story and a memory of a life well lived.

Thank you to Dr. Bakshi and Dr. Blacklock, the CV nurses, Eric Toneff, Ron Freeman, Daniel Kang and everyone else for your support, love and encouragement.

Dad…

You were an incredible man

You were a great role model and led by example

You worked hard to provide for your family, never complaining

You loved God and you loved others unconditionally

You demanded respect not through fierceness but through warmth and gentleness

You spoke softly and thoughtfully

Your smile and and laugh were infectious

You made time for family because you knew what was important in life

You understood people in a way few others ever could

You believed everyone had worth and  you encouraged them

You were the voice of reason

You gave without receiving

You saw the humour in everything

You didn’t let the little things bother you

You taught everyone what it meant to be a good person

You put others before yourself

You were strong even until the end

You watched over your family always

Now you watch over us and smile from above

“It’s all good”
