Travis left us all too soon. Our beloved Travis is now in heaven, shining down upon us. He will be deeply missed by all of his family and all who knew and loved him. Travis' greatest joy in life was spending time outdoors, especially with his son. As a lifelong resident of Grass Valley, he knew all of the best places to explore and was often seen taking his son on a special journey to collect treasures.
His kindness and love were felt by all he met. He was a wonderful father, loving son and brother, awesome nephew, cousin and the best friend anyone could ever have.
He is survived by his son, Travis; parents, Tony and Darian Dryden; siblings, Joe, Korinne and Antony; grandmother, Kathleen; and numerous nieces, aunts, uncles and cousins.
In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to a trust fund for his son, Travis Lewis, for which a trust will be opened soon in his son's name at the Chase Bank in Grass Valley.
Arrangements are in the care of Chapel of the Angels Mortuary in Grass Valley.
