Travis Bass, age 38, passed away on November 4, 2019 at his home in Zachary. He was born in Zachary, LA to Mikal R. Bass and Mary N. Bass on September 28, 1981. Travis grew up in Baker, and later moved to Zachary. He was usually busy tinkering with a motor of some sort, because he was always interested in how things worked. He loved to be outside in the fresh air. When his hands weren't busy fixing something, they were creating art. Travis had a tremendous talent for drawing and painting whatever his big imagination came up with. He frequently gave his creations to his family members as gifts. When he wasn't handing out gifts he made, he was handing out smiles. He had the biggest heart, and loved to make everyone around him smile. There was no mood in the world that he could not fix with his huge grin and his infectious laughter! Travis was survived by his loving parents, Mikal and Mary Bass and a huge circle of sisters and their spouses, Candace LeRay, Darren and Barbara Shipp, Mark and Melissa Evans, Kris and Shiree Rowland, Tom and Amanda Southon, and Sarah Bass. He also had 38 nieces and nephews. There will a gathering to honor his sweet soul on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at 1:00 p.m. at his parent's home in Zachary.

I do not like this life without you one bit. I keep messaging you, but no answer. I have been to mom & dads,but you never walked out the bedroom. I keep waiting to wake up from this terrible dream, but I never do.This is my reality now, a life with no Bud and I just can't deal. Please help me brother, I am so lost without you.

My dearest only brother, God how I miss you. How am I to go on without you? You were so much light in my life and so many others as well. I wish you would have known your worth. You were so much more then you gave yourself credit for. Your heart was so big and full of love, you seriously have no idea the tremendous effect you had on people. Man I'm just lost. I will cherish every time ever spent with you I promise. I will love even more those jokes that made zero sense but made you laugh at yourself anyway. And I will remain grateful that I chose to name my precious child after you. I nailed it naming her after you and didn't even know it then. She has so many of your traits and she will live up to your big name. I love you baby brother. Stick close as often as you can if you don't mind. I will talk to you often.
