Travis J. Vargas, 45, Johnson Creek Wisconsin, formerly of Finland, died Thursday July 16, 2020 in a motorcycle accident near his hometown.
He was born December 20, 1974 to Teresa Anderson and Juan Vargas in Chicago, IL. Travis grew up in Finland, graduating from William Kelly High School in 1993. Travis was employed by Mclane Trucking for 8 years before joining Roundy’s as a truck driver for the Kroger grocery chain for the past 5 years. He was a member of Teamster Local # 200.
Travis’s life revolved around his wife and children. He lived life to the fullest no matter what. He loved snowmobiling and Harley rides with his wife and friends. Travis was a lover of Classic Country music and Mexican Rancheros. He was the kind of friend who would give you the shirt off his back and will be deeply missed by everyone whose life he touched.
He was preceded in death by his father, Juan Vargas; brother, Tyler Vargas; grandfather, Bill Anderson; and grandmother, Maria Fernandez Vargas.
Travis is survived by his wife, Joelle; children Alex, Max, Andon, and Myles; step-children Dillon, Franci, Logan, and Andrew; grandchildren Brody, Hudson, and Renesmee; mother, Teresa Anderson; brothers Juan, Sabino, Stevie, Gabe, Chad, and Jesse; sisters Grace, Sandra, Linda, and Mandy; grandmother, Joan Anderson; and a large extended family.
