Johnnie and Family – on behalf of the USS DENVER Association, we wish to express to you our condolences on the loss of Travis. Those of us who got to know him over the years at the annual reunions will remember him and his family as a strong person – the kind of person who served his country in its great hour of need – and who excelled in most everything he set out to do. Our society is safer and stronger because of men like our shipmate Travis. And our lives have been enriched from knowing our friend Travis. May God bless you and keep you safe.
Jim and Dianne Hyden
