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.
