Travis Minor, age 76 of Batavia, NY passed away on July 18, 2019 at the UMMC in Batavia surrounded by his loving family after a brief illness. Born on August 28, 1942, in Batavia, he was the son of the late John and Doris Minor. He married Lucy (Pinto) Minor on December 18, 1965. Travis was a graduate of Batavia High School and Tarkio College in Missouri. Travis was a long-time manager and part owner of PW Minor and Son, a long-term Board Member of Tonawanda Federal Credit Union and a member of numerous other boards throughout the years within the community he loved so much. Travis was a quiet, industrious man with an easy going manner who enjoyed life’s simple pleasures, from his work in the family business, relationships he developed with the people he worked with through-out his life, playing cards and having lunch with friends, relaxing at Horseshoe Lake and most especially spending time with his grandchildren. He was an avid fan of the Buffalo Bills and a former member of the Blue Coats fan organization. His depth of character and positive outlook was demonstrated after sudden paralysis in his later years and he continued living his life as full and independent as possible with strength and dignity. Travis is survived by his loving wife and long-time care provider, Lucy; son, Michael (Tara Rowcliffe) of Brighton, NY; his adored grandchildren, Madelyn, Travis and Mitchel Minor; sibling, Missy Minor (Peter Watson) of Boulder, CO and nieces and nephew. In addition to his parents, Travis was predeceased by brother, Robert Minor. The family would like to thank United Memorial Medical Center for the superb care they gave Travis to the end. A private memorial service will be held at the convenience of the family. Donations in Travis’ name may be sent to Volunteers for Animals, PO Box 1621, Batavia, NY 14021. More info at
