Travis Edward Deardorff, 56, passed away on March 4, 2024, in his favorite place Jackson, Wyo. He was born on Nov. 7, 1967 in Ronan.

Travis graduated from Plains High School in Plains where he spent most of his childhood. Throughout his life Travis traveled throughout the U.S. finding adventures fencing in Hawaii, raising a family in California, hiking mountains with his beloved dogs in Montana, and visiting his daughters and grandson in Colorado and Texas. Travis was known for his love for his family, dedication to hard work (even with one thumb), and willingness to help anyone. His laughs brought smiles to so many souls.

Memorial services will be held at a later time in Plains Montana.

A cowboy never dies, they just ride off into the sunset.
