My life won't be a cautious journey to my grave with the intention of arriving safely in a perfect, well preserved body...I think I would rather skid in sideways on a bitchin' chopper thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaim "Wow, what a ride!"Indian Larry
This memorial website was created to remember our dearest Travis Austin Bestwick who was born on May 29, 1983 and passed away on June 22, 2008. You will live forever in our memories and hearts.
Travis was born on May 29, 1983 at St. Clare's Hospital in Baraboo, WI, just a little guy at 5 lbs 15 oz, he came in to this world in a big way. At just 8 hours old we were told we would have to take him to St. Mary's in Madison, due to a physical birth defect that could have had some more complicated internal defects. So the nurses wrapped him in a blanket out of a warmer and his Aunt Kileen, Grandma Lorraine, his Dad, Rick & I drove him to Madison. After several days at St. Mary's all was found to be ok, except the bone issue, which as those that knew him, knew his right arm was shorter than his left and he only had four fingers on that hand.
On June 22, 2208 he left this world just like he came in, in a big way. I believe he fought until the end, and that he waited for Shawna and I to tell him it was ok for him to go, that we would be ok and that we would take care of his Dad. At 8:08 am he succumbed to the injuries he sustained after being run down while riding his bestfriends motorcycle.
While Travis may be gone the legend of Tito B "Five Feet of Fury" will live on forever. We love you and miss you Travis and we will never forget you.
I can just imagine these words going through Travis' head as he lay on that road, some of the words don't exactly fit the situation, but it really hits home for me. I LOVE YOU SON!
