David Howard Travis, 51, known affectionately as “Dapper Dave” by friends and family died early Sunday morning, January 31, 2021, at his shared residence in Claremont, NH.
He was born in Rochester, NY; he relocated with his mother and older brother, Edward, to Claremont. He attended grade school at Saint Mary’s Catholic School where he made many lifelong friends. He was a Stevens High School alumnus of 1988.
He was a prominent parts manager at many dealerships in the valley area for most of his life.
After surviving a brutal car crash in 2004, he rallied and learned to walk, talk and live life again. He was diagnosed with Traumatic Brain Injury but did not allow that to stop his enjoyment of life. He was a well-loved sight at local gas stations, where he worked part-time.
He was predeceased by his father, Melvin Edson Travis in 2004; his mother, Elizabeth Rita Travis in 2007; his uncle, Alfred Meunier in 2012 and various aunts, uncles, and cousins.
He is survived by his two children, Ethan Travis and Cameron Travis; two grandchildren, Olivia Travis and Grayson Travis; his brother, Edward Travis and a half-brother, Mark Travis.
A graveside service will be held at West Claremont Burying Grounds, Plains Road in Claremont on Monday, February 8th at 11AM.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Stringer Funeral Home and Travis family ask all attending the graveside to abide with all regulations and please wear a mask and use social distancing.
