Travis was born to Jackie Smith and the late James Elmer Smith, in Richlands, Virginia, on December 14, 1989.

Travis graduated high school and immediately enlisted in the United States Navy. Travis served on the USS New Orleans (LPD 18) HP as an ENFA. He was awarded the Navy “E” Ribbon, Navy Good Conduct Medal, National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal, Global War on Terrorism Service Medal, Sea Service Deployment Ribbon, and Pistol Marksmanship Ribbon.

After leaving the Navy, Travis became a Boilermaker and was a proud member of the Local Union 627.

Travis, or as some of his dear friends often referred to him, as a “Big Beautiful, Bearded Man,” loved life. He loved serving his country, and he loved welding. But nothing compared to his love for fishing. His love for some good pond fishing led him to ranch life in Oklahoma with his mother and stepfather; he took great pride in being there to help tend to all the things that make ranch life exactly what it is.

Travis is survived by his mother, Jackie Smith, and stepfather, Charlie Hughart; his girlfriend, Amber Archuleta, and her children, Noah, Seth, and Luke; his older brother, JD Smith, and his wife, Kimberly Smith; his nephews, Carter and Daniel Smith, his grandparents, Danny and Linda Lowe, his aunts, Sharon, Debbie, Becky, Charlie, Candy and Angie, his uncles, Jerry, Jeff, Ray, Sid, Tim and Doug, his cousins, Layla, Shawn, Nathan, Liam, Justin, Holly, Jessica, Desirae, Billy Ray, Montana, and Jeffrey, and his dog,  The Duke.
