Travis was born, on July 12, 1980 in Cedar Rapids, the son of Gale and Bev (Hymes) Speer. He graduated from Kennedy High School in Cedar Rapids with the class of 1999 and Kirkwood Community College with a degree in Industrial Maintenance. On March 22, 2014, he was united in marriage to Bridget Donlon in Cedar Rapids.

Travis took great pride in brewing a number of different craft beers and loved to share with others. He enjoyed camping on the river with his family and visiting National Parks and attending races. He was a maintenance man for all he knew, fixing, helping sharing tools, and was a real "jack of all trades".

He is survived by his wife Bridget of Atkins; his children whom he loved dearly, Michael, Joel, and Emma; his parents, Gale and Bev Speer; sister Stephanie (Matt) Matheny; brother Kyle (Sarah) Speer; several nieces and nephews; and numerous aunts and uncles. He was claimed by all the Donlon Family as one of their own.

He was preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents.

Susan and Dennis Pettit January 14, 2022, 2:35 pm We were so sad to hear about Travis. He went through school with our son. He was always such a nice boy. Haven’t seen the Speer family for years. But fond memories way back to Pierce years. Our whole family sends our sympathy. Blessings to you all. Love and Prayers. Pettits
