Travis was raised in Switzerland County and was a 1989 graduate of the Switzerland County High School. He attended Purdue University from 1989 - 1994 and received his bachelors degree in education from Northern Kentucky University in 1996. Travis was united in marriage to the love of his life, Amy Lynn Robinson on September 20, 1997 at the Versailles Church of Christ in Versailles, Indiana. This happy union was blessed with a son, Trayton and three daughters, Kinsley, Analyse and Kendall. Travis and Amy shared nearly 21 years of marriage together until his death. Travis was a former 4th grade teacher for Cartmell Elementary School in Carrollton, Kentucky, for one year. Travis was currently the 5th grade teacher where he was known as Mr. G for the Switzerland County Elementary School in East Enterprise, Indiana, since January 1999. Travis was the lead guitarist in the "Remember Me Monday" band which he formed in May of 2015 with his brother, Brandon and friends, Kelly Carr and Tim Deckert. Music has always been a part of the Griffith family. From his grandparents to his parents, to Travis and Brandon; and now on to Travis' children - music is intertwined with their daily lives. Travis attended the North Madison Christian Church in Madison, Indiana, where he played in the praise band with his children. Travis was a member of the Milan Christian Church, Classroom Teachers Association, National Education Association and the project based learning through the Indiana Department of Education. Since the young age of 17, Travis enjoyed attending mud runs, drag races, farm machinery shows, motorsports and the Daytona 500. Travis especially enjoyed playing the guitar, music, singing, fishing, fabricating, body work, painting, drawing and the Indianapolis Colts. He also enjoyed participating in math bowl and going to the beach with his family. Most of all, his family and their faith was most important. Having somewhere to go is home, having someone to love is family; having both is a blessing. Travis passed away with his loving family by his side and entered the arms of his Lord and Savior, where there is no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying or pain at 1:35 p.m., Sunday, March 4, 2018, at his residence in Florence, Indiana.
