Travis Andrew Muenks

Travis A. Muenks, age 44 of Loose Creek, passed away Tuesday, January 10, 2017, at Capital Region Medical Center in Jefferson City.

Travis was born March 28, 1972, in Jefferson City, a son to Norman and Judy (Kliethermes) Muenks. His parents survive of the home in Loose Creek.

Travis was a 1991 graduate of Fatima High School. While at Fatima Travis sang in the choir and performed several solo numbers.

Travis was employed at Capital Projects in Jefferson City for several years.

Travis was a member of Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Loose Creek where he served as an usher.

Travis enjoyed attending the picnics throughout Osage County with his friends from the John Stratman Apartments in Linn. He loved country music and could tell you the artist who sang the songs. He sang many solos over the years at weddings and funerals and recently he and his friends from the Stratman apartments sang at the” Mid Missouri’s Got Talent” show in Jefferson City that was sponsored by the United Way. He enjoyed sending out birthday cards to random people he would meet. He would ask your birthday and your address and never write down any of the information and when your birthday came around you would get a card from him. He was an avid fan of the Kansas City Chiefs and the St. Louis Cardinals. He also treasured the times he spent fishing with his uncle Bill. To sum up Travis’s life you could say, He lived an amazing life, defying the odds and that he truly loved people.

In addition to his parents, Travis is survived by: two sisters, Tricia Miles and her husband John and Amy Muenks all of Olathe, KS; two nieces, Ashlyn Miles and Mara Piros; a nephew Devon Miles; his maternal grandmother, Irene Kliethermes as well as many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.

May this dear family find some measure of comfort in knowing that one day all now asleep in the grave will come out. This promise was spoken by Jesus at John 5:28, 29. Your beloved Travis now has the grand prospect of being among these soon-to-be resurrected ones. Please accept my sincerest condolences at this difficult time. Take care.

Dear Judy, Norman, and Family, Please accept my sincere condolences at this time of great sadness. I know that Travis will be missed by so many people. He showed great kindness and cheer to everyone. My prayers are with you all.

Norman & Judy, My condolences on the loss of Travis. I went to Fatima with both Travis and Tricia. When I heard the news, I couldn't help but think back to high school, and the memories I had of Travis. These memories simply brought a smile to my face as I pictured Travis' smiling, happy face (the only way I ever saw him). God had a purposeful plan for putting Travis here. Please know Travis had a positive influence on my life and I am thankful for having known him. We are praying for you and all of the family in this difficult time. God Bless, Sergio Fernandez

Judy, I am so sorry for your loss! One thing we can count on is Travis is now walking on streets of Gold! I wish I had words of comfort for you! I am unable to travel there for his funeral due to health problems, but your family will be in my thoughts and prayers!

Judy and Norman, I am so sorry for your loss. I remember when he was born. So very special. God must have big plans for him now.

What a beautifully written tribute to a fine young man. I too recall being surprised at his ability to sing so beautifully. We all have gifts from God and it appears Travis used every single one of his. Your family will be in my prayers. Doris Backes-Delp
