Travis Nathan CARDINAL

A father, a son, and a great friend, Travis Cardinal is survived by two sons Clyde Gullion and Airias Patenaude, one of whom he didn’t get to spend too much time with as he chose to stay away because of his life path. He was able to form a bond with his younger son Airias, but still his addiction and life path kept the relationship distant.

Travis had a troubling childhood, didn’t know his real father, and always wanted to be a good dad. Travis was a loving dad and a friend who would always be there when he could be. He will always be remembered and cherished in many people’s hearts. Outside the addiction, he was an amazing person with big dreams of becoming something great. Travis excelled at basketball, hockey and loved making music and poetry. He had a way with his words and his charm will always be remembered.

Travis left many memories for the people who crossed his path. He will be remembered for his humor, he could always make a person laugh, his big infectious smile that he always had on his face and for his love for people. He enjoyed being around all walks of life, and not once did he judge anyone. Travis loved and protected everybody he was around, it was in his nature. His perseverance, no matter how hard his path got, he continued to keep pushing forward with a huge smile on his face. Travis was always happy and loving and brought hope into many people’s lives.

Travis had a dream to help people with the same struggles as him. Find the link here to the GoFundMe with more information for Travis’ memorial bench that will be placed in the park, he was tragically murdered in, where gang/addiction awareness and reduction workshops will be held in his memory to try to help others with the same struggle. Travis always helped all those around him in so many ways and that will be positively continued in his memory.

    Sending condolences to Courtney, Janis, Clyde and Airias. Travis was a very funny loving guy. I really enjoyed seeing him bond with his little family. I’m going to miss seeing him around being silly and making jokes about everything. Life was definitely uplifting with him around. He was so positive about the future regardless of his struggles. He created some very smart boys and his memory will live on through them. Rest easy Travis. ❤️
