Travis D. “Cool Cat” Vice was born on Jan. 29, 1978, in Independence. He departed this life on Aug. 25, 2018, at St. Tammany Parish Hospital.

Travis was a very hard worker and a great provider. He has been a truck driver for the last 19 years of his life. He revolved his life around the things that meant the most to him — his children, mother, and his lifelong dream job as a truck driver. Nothing meant more to him than his family and friends.

Travis is survived by his parents, Lynda Lawler and William Ramshur; four children, Travis D. Bowen, Trenton D. Vice, Macayla L. Vice and Gia Blackwell; one grandchild, Mackenzie Grace Bowen; two sisters, Jennifer Nelson of Bogalusa, and Stacey M. Tartt of Saraland, Ala.; six aunts, Patricia Price (Joe) of Eastonville, Miss., Kathy McNelley of Janesville, Wisc., Cynthia (David) Stroda of Herrington, Kan., Betty Marie (Billy) Briggs of Picayune, Miss., Jerri (Craig) Turan of Saucier, Miss., and Virginia Ann of Picayune; four uncles, James “J.D.” (Jan) Hancock of Saucier, Dennis (Tiffany) Hancock of Herrington, Monroe (Betty) Ramshur of Ackerman, Miss., and Jimmy (Mariam) Ramshur of Texas.

Travis was preceded in death by a daughter, Maria N. Vice; his maternal grandmother, Mary Hancock; and his paternal grandmother and grandfather, Manual and Mary Ramshur.

Funeral services will be Sunday, Sept. 2, at 1 p.m. at the Cook-Richmond Funeral Home Chapel. Visitation will begin at 11 a.m. until the time of the service. Interment will be at Ponemah Cemetery.

Cook-Richmond Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.
