Travis Benjamin Applebaum

November 2nd, 1985 - August 24th, 2020

Travis Benjamin Applebaum 1985-2020 Travis Benjamin (Trav) Applebaum was born on November 2, 1985 to parents Michael and Mary Applebaum in Murray, Utah. He passed on to a place of peace from Boise, Idaho on August 24, 2020. Travis was incredibly gifted intellectually. Most people meeting him for the first time were struck by that, but also were impressed by the questions he asked about you, in his quest for understanding. His brain was always going. He was always thinking of ways things could be improved, and he was willing to do the research. It may seem difficult to believe that an individual with 3 Associate degrees in computer science; and both a Bachelors in Psychology and a Masters in Health Science from BSU had a reading learning disability, but Travis not only did, but he found a solution for it in getting all his textbooks turned into audiobooks. He then wrote a paper on it, presented it to the BSU Educational Access Center, and as a result a new program was added to help other students at the university with similar problems. Travis was also humble. He never talked about this accomplishment. He was grateful for the help he had received and was excited to be able to pass it on. Travis was the family’s tech guru who everyone called when they had a problem. He had only one request, you had to try to figure it out on your own first. If unsuccessful, then give him a call. He loved to hear what you learned by your own trials and tribulations. He had a passion for anything to do with space and technology because he loved to see how far the limits of humanity could be pushed. Only those who knew Travis most intimately knew him as the warrior he was. He fought a war for years just to survive against a constant and often overwhelming host of health issues. One of the tools he used was humor. It was dry, so dry that we called it “desert humor.” But he had a one of a kind laugh and smile, and once he got you laughing with him it was hard to stop. Travis excelled in debate while in high school, and never stopped debating the rest of his life. Conversations with him were funny, lively, entertaining; many times, moments to be treasured. Travis always said that meeting and later marrying his wife Samantha was one of the highlights of his life. They were married in a simple ceremony on August 26, 2017 at Kathryn Albertsons Park. Travis is survived by his parents Michael and Mary Applebaum, his sister Rachel Applebaum, his wife Samantha Joseph, and many other extended family members on both sides. He will be overwhelmingly missed by family and friends. A private memorial service will be held on September 20th, 2020 to celebrate and honor Travis. The family wishes to thank everyone for their love, support, and prayers. Remembrances may be left for Travis’ family on his web page at www.AccentFuneral.com. Services are under the care of Accent Funeral Home and Cremation, Meridian. 208-888-5833.

Thoughts and prayers to Travis' family. I worked with Travis to arrange his accommodations at Boise State. It was always a treat to chat with him, but especially the last few times we met before he graduated. He was excited to be teaching a class, and overjoyed at being newly married.

I was informed today of Travis's passing. Travis was originally a client of my wife's when she worked for WITCO. I later worked with him as well in finding different ways to utilize his incredible perspectives, talents and abilities. He was writing and developing web content for us to hopefully lighten his burdens. We are truly heartbroken for all of you and would love to know what happened in order to find a little closure. I realize you don't know us, but please know Travis was a special person to both my wife and I. I pray you find comfort at this time. I don't know how else we can help, but we'll treasure the last time he stopped by with his dog to visit and pick up his pay. Sincerely, Rob Young [email protected]

First of, my deepest sympathies go out to everyone who was touched by knowing Travis. I was Travis's brother-in-law, and my wife an I were fortunate enough to not only attend the wedding, but to have Travis stay with us for a week while Samantha and Travis were in California. The first thing that struct me about Travis, was just how intelligent he was. It seemed that he knew a lot about everything, and could go into such detail with you about almost any subject. Travis had this larger than life personality, and was never afraid to be direct with you. I remember all of us going out to dinner at Duca di Beppo, and having Travis ask to speak with the Chef. When the Chef came out, Travis began to dissect the menu with the Chef. Making sure to find out everything that was going into the food to ensure no soy would contaminate it. As Travis grilled him on all the oils, and types of beans, the Chef seemed to be in a dizzy, not knowing exactly all the ingredients he was using in the food. He had to go back and check two times, to be 100% sure of what ingredients he was using before finally finding a dish that was perfect. That's the thing about Travis, he was never rude, but patient, he would not talk down to you, but instead listen attentively, as if every word that would come out of his mouth was calculated before hand. I know both my wife and I will miss him terribly, as I am sure many of you will as well. May happiness find you wherever you are brother. T
