Resident of Ferndale

Travis Lee Holst, 23, of Ferndale, died on Tuesday, December 31, 2013 as a result of injuries sustained in a tragic car accident. He was born August 1, 1990, the son of Mark Holst and Lori Thomas. He attended Ferndale schools and graduated Ferndale High School in 2009. Hunting and fishing were Travis’s first loves. The many stories shared of Travis’s outings with his brothers, uncle Jordan, and numerous friends during his short lifetime will always bring a smile to our faces. He was a natural athlete, participating in many sports during his growing years and continuing until his passing. Travis had a witty sense of humor and a smile that lit up the room. He loved his family, gentle and caring with his nieces and nephew. Travis was a devoted and loyal friend to many, playing practical jokes on all which often ended in hysterical laughter. Your light will forever be in our hearts. Be at peace now our love, and soar with the angels, until we meet again. He is survived by father Mark (Shari) Holst, mother Lori Thomas, siblings; Matt Holst, Kristi Moreno, Katie (Todd) Andrew, Christina Reeve, Jared Reeve, and Hank Hilts; numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins; grandmothers Ann Holst and Ramona Thomas, and grandparents Tom and Kay Faulkner.

    Travie fits you so perfectly. There is one thing I know for sure is that your family loved you dearly. It was such a pleasure to have played softball with you for so many years. The tournaments were always the funnest and funniest. You were always so quiet and gentle as a big teddy bear.But that smirk was a sign that you may be up to something or you were a little bashful. It was a sad story when you hurt your knee and you were out of commission for awhile. It was not the same not to have your whole family out there playing together….and it really won’t be the same now. You were a super athlete and super person..such a good sport about everything. You were a big goofball…then a small goofball when you shrunk. You started playing with us so young and you whipped us all…especially at homeruns. You left us way too early Travis. So sad. You will never be forgotten.

  3. Dear Lori and family, I am so sorry to hear of the loss of Travis. I believe I had him in my Sunday school class back when we went to NV Baptist Church. I will continue to pray for healing and peace for you and your family. I cannot even imagine the heart break you must be going through but from one mother to another, please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. With love, Angie
