Jonathon “Jonny” Nelson Travis of Tiverton, died unexpectedly at home, Saturday, Oct. 29, 2022, at the age of 44. Cherished son of the late John Travis (1999) and Margaret (née Jackson) Travis-Gilchrist (2022). Dear brother of Kate (Josh) Kunkel of Tiverton, and Victoria (Michael) Ogg of Kincardine. Adored uncle of Peyton, Kyra, Oaklynn and Willow. Fondly remembered by his stepfather, Brian Gilchrist; aunts and uncles, Gordon (Jean) Travis, Bill (Carol) Jackson and Sandy (Ginger) Jackson; and several cousins. Predeceased by his grandparents, Nelson and Mona (née Ibbotson) Travis, and Harry and Elsie “Peachie” (née George) Jackson; and nephew, Odin John Ogg. Jonny was a great big brother and the best uncle anyone could ask for. Family was very important to him; in fact, he was the hub of the family and his group of friends. You could say he was the glue that kept everyone together. He was very proud of living on the family farm. He enjoyed any kind of sport and was an avid fan of the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Blue Jays and Buffalo Bills. He liked to have a good time, and was funny and very witty. He will be deeply missed. Visitation will be held at the Davey-Linklater Funeral Home, Kincardine, Monday, Nov. 7, 2022, from 2-4 p.m. and 7-9 p.m., where the memorial service to honour Jonny’s life will be held Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2022, at 11 a.m., with Ann Maycock officiating. Interment, Port Bruce Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Jonny’s memory, to WES for Youth On-line or Get In Touch For Hutch, would be appreciated by the family.
