Travis Sean Mettleholzer also known as Traffic took his first breath in Georgetown, Guyana. He was the first born and only son to loving parents Wickham and Roxanna.

As a child, Travis was most described as a playful, active and adventurous person and carried those characteristics into his adulthood. He enjoyed playing games of any kind. Besides clowning around, Travis did his best in school and was able to attend one of the top high schools in Guyana, St. Roses High School. Due to his hands on skills, Travis left St. Roses to attend Georgetown Technical Institute where he obtained a certificate in carpentry. He later obtained a position at the National Insurance Scheme until he migrated to The United States in 2000. Travis was employed at Apex Xpress in New York and New Jersey for five years prior to joining the military.

In 2001, Travis met Sonia Joseph and from this relationship he was blessed with his first child Kishan. This was one of the best moments of his life and Travis was so proud to become the father of a handsome baby boy.

On October 4, 2005, Travis married the love of his life Shavon Airey. From this uinon one child was born - Trinity- who he affectionately referred to as Mini Me. Travis also stepped in to become the loving step father of Ashley Pinckney, who was only three years old at the time of her parents union.

In 2009, Trav made the decision to enlist into the United States Army as an Airborne Infantryman and served a tour in Afghanistan in 2010. He enjoyed his life as a soldier and loved serving his country. While in the service Travis was awarded an Afghanistan Campaign Medal with star, an Army Achievement Medal, a National Defense Service Medal, Global War on Terroism Service Medal, and Army Service Ribbon, an Overseas Service Ribbon, a Nato Campaign Medal and Jump Wings. In July 2012 he was honarbly discharged from the military and immediately enrolled in college with dreams of becoming an electrical engineer. He was a student at Hudson County Community College at the time of his untimely passing.

Travis was a high spirited person who never made an enemy in his life, and he left his mark in the hearts of all people he came into contact with. Despite his trials and tribulations, Trav always had a smile upon his face and tried to make the best of the worst situation.

Travis was called home to be with the Lord.
