Travis J. Christopherson
Travis J. Christopherson - a loving husband, father, brother, and friend to everyone - passed away peacefully October 2, 2021, in Boise, Idaho with his wife at his side.
He is survived by his wife, Tina Christopherson, his sons, Tyler and Jacob Christopherson, his step-children, Lexis, Jordan, and Joshua Schonherr and Crystal Price, his soon to be sons-in-law, Derrick Fox and Matthew Wilkes, his grandchildren, Remington and Freyja Price, and Ebby Fox, his sister, Mindy (Dale) Hutchings, and his brothers, Don (Michelle) and Landon Christopherson, and his mother, Diana Christopherson.
Travis was born in Blackfoot, Idaho, to Arlyn and Diana Christpherson on August 19, 1972. He chose to serve a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints from July 1992 to June 1994. He had an amazingly strong testimony of the gospel. He always said that while he was raised in Idaho, he grew up during his two years in Alabama. His faith was his foundation and he shared his testimony with many people.
He loved telling stories about all the misadventures he had with his brothers, Don and Landon, and his friend, Vic Marley. They managed to cause a lot of chaos, participate in more races than they will ever claim, and damage a few vehicles along the way. He always loved the time he spent with them. He admired his sister, Mindy, for her strength and ability to love. There were many times in his life that he wished he could be more like her. He looked up to his siblings and loved them.
Travis loved and cherished his sons, Tyler and Jacob. He felt very blessed to have the privilege of raising his boys. He always enjoyed the times they spent goofing off and enjoying their time together. He wanted to be the best father possible for them.
He had the ability to see an individual’s true spirit. He touched so many lives for good. Travis found joy in serving others and bringing them peace and comfort. He had an uncanny ability to reach people in a deep and meaningful way. He was able to use this ability every day in his job. He was privileged to work for Ace Medical Transportation. He truly loved his coworkers and clients. There were many days he would complain about the traffic. At the end of his complaining, he always said it was worth it because of the clients he spent his days with.
Travis married the love of his life, Tina, on December 18, 2020. They were a couple who truly loved each other. Although nine months wasn’t long enough for them to be together here on earth, they both know they will be together again. His wife knows that he loved her more in one year than she had ever experienced in her entire life. They promised each other a love that would last for eternity and a day.
He also had the opportunity to be a loving step-father and grandfather. In the short time he was able to be with all of them, he made such a significant difference in their lives. He taught them how meaningful life could be and helped guide them to a future full of promise.
All those whose lives Travis was able to touch are invited to a viewing at Relyea Funeral Chapel, 318 N. Latah, Boise, Idaho, from 6p.m. to 8p.m. on Thursday, October 7, 2021. Funeral services will be held, Friday, October 8, 2021, at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints chapel, 1111 S. Cole Road, Boise, Idaho, at 11a.m.
Travis loved his family, he loved the Lord and that love will go on for eternity.
