Stephen Lee Travis was called home by the Lord on Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013.

Our Heavenly Father brought him into this world on July, 12, 1951.

He lived in Apalachicola for the last 28 years and worked at the Apalachicola National Estuarine Research Reserve.

Steve was predeceased by his parents, Olive and Leonard Travis.

Steve leaves behind his wife, Barbara; his stepson, Erick Nielsen, of Tallahassee; mother-in-law Barbara Ray, of Inverness; his sister, Joan (Fred) Houck, of Hudson; sister-in-laws Lori Ray, of Sebring, and Jody (Jacque) Merritt, of Inverness; many nieces and nephews; and many great-nieces and great-nephews.

Steve was cremated and did not want a service. He just asked that his family and friends have their favorite drink and think of him.
