William Travis Harrell was born August 22, 1975 in Bainbridge, the son of Nolan and Judy Palmer Harrell. He was a graduate of Bainbridge High School, Class of 1995. Travis worked at Burgundy Timber and was Baptist by faith.

Travis was that guy always willing to step up and help with anything. He stayed busy, usually outdoors and usually hunting, fishing and riding motorcycles. Travis loved his children and brothers and sisters more than anything. He always got a kick out of sharing tales from his childhood and watching the surprised looks as his audience envisioned his stunts.

Survivors include his wife, Paige Busby Harrell; his children, Elizabeth H. Day (Dylan) of Bainbridge, Nikita Harrell (Cecil Grant) of Colquitt, Ga., Michael McMinn of Oak Grove, Mo., Dylan Harrell and Brody Harrell, also of Bainbridge; his siblings, Gena Kelley (Russell), Dawn Hand, Nolan Dewayne Harrell, Jr. (Amy), and Ester Gibson; and several nieces and nephews. Travis was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother-in-law, Bobby Hand, Sr.
