Travis Wayne Pope was born May 6, 1978 in St. Cloud, Minnesota to Wayne and Cindy (Becker) Pope. Travis grew up outside of Kimball and attended elementary school at Holy Cross in Pearl Lake. He graduated from Kimball High School with the Class of 1996. Travis was a self-employed carpenter, in addition to raising cattle on the family farm. On August 25, 2019 he was united in marriage to Sara M. Keller at their home in Kimball. Travis was an outdoor enthusiast. It didn’t matter what he was doing, if he could be outside, he was happy. This included fishing, driving his gator, and spending time on the lake. He was also a sports fan, except for the NBA. He would proudly cheer for the Minnesota sports team that was competing. He was known to make the occasional trip to Fleet Farm, could fix anything, and solve any problem. Travis will fondly be remembered for his sense of humor and wit. Above all, Travis cherished the time he was able to spend with his family, especially with his daughter, Ashtyn.
