Travis Jerome Speck1992 – 2017

Travis Jerome Speck “TJ”, age 24, passed away Wednesday April 12, 2017 in Gunnison, Colorado.

Travis was born on July 9, 1992 in Vail. He went to school in Eagle and Montrose and graduated from Montrose High School in 2010. He attended Western State Colorado University in Gunnison, where he received his bachelor of arts in psychology in May 2016. Travis was known for his kind heart, love of cats, comical personality, as well as his endless curiosity with a remarkable intelligence to match. In his free time he loved to play video games with his friends. He will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved him.

Travis is survived by his father, Timothy G. Speck, of Eagle, and mother, Kathe E. Speck (Hermens), of Harlingen, Texas and his sister Stephanie K.M. Speck, of Gunnison. He also leaves his maternal grandfather, Irvin F. Hermens, of McMinnville Oregon; and his paternal grandmother, Josephine Speck, of Albuquerque, New Mexico and many loving aunts, uncles and cousins.

A Celebration of Life Service will be provided by Pastor Michael McVay, at 5 p.m. on Friday at the Gunnison Fairgrounds. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider donations to the Travis J. Speck Memorial Scholarship fund at Alpine Bank, 2770 Alpine Dr. Montrose, CO 81401 or any Alpine Bank. These funds will go to students who graduated from Western Slope high schools in Colorado and plan to attend Western State Colorado University.

Those we love don’t go away, they walk beside us every day, unseen, unheard, but always near, still loved, still missed and very dear.
