Travis Ray, son of Dennis and Tammy (Kastli) Cain, was born January 19, 1986, in Waterloo, Iowa. Travis received his education in the Sumner Schools, graduating from Sumner High School in 2004.

Travis was a great asset to our team here at G4S Secure Solutions. He was a hard worker, showed up on time and had no complaints about the duties he was tasked with. We send our condolences to his family and friends. Travis will be missed.

His Supervisor had this to say about him: "Travis was a hard worker, always showed up at least a half hour early to work. Would do different tasks that I would ask of him. I could trust that he could handle situations on his own. For example the possible active shooter that he stopped and numerous other incidents that he intervened in. Travis had every expectation to remain with G4S and UIU Safety and Security for a good span of time. His loss will be a great loss to this company and to the Faculty, Staff, and Students. He will be greatly missed and will be hard to replace".

Travis will be missed by so many. I didn't know him very long but I knew him well enough to know that he loved his wife and his son with all he had. RIP Travis. Prayers and love to Jodie and the rest of the family.
