Bruce Wayne Travis, 68, of Glasgow, died Saturday, April 7, 2018, at his home.
Born in Owensboro, he was the son of Dorman Armstrong Travis and Lucille Norris Travis who survive.
He was a supervisor for Houchens Industries for over 35 years and was a U.S. Army veteran of the Vietnam War.
He was a devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother and son. In the words of his grandchildren, "the coolest dude ever." He had a private pilot's license and a lifelong love for aviation and aerobatics. One of his favorite things was taking his friends and family for thrilling plane rides. He cherished his family and friends and considered them his greatest treasures. We know Brucie will be watching over us from his Heavenly home.
