Obituary of Travis Caswell
Owensburg-Travis Caswell, 33, of Owensburg died at 11:00 pm on October 3, 2018.
Born June 23, 1985 in Monroe County, IN, he was the son of Dale and Tammi (Girdley) Caswell. He married the love of his life, Jennifer Smith on July 15, 2006 and she survives. Travis was an extraordinary man with extraordinary dreams! He had a heart of gold and a mind of his own. He learned at a young age that if you were given a job you did it right. It was that logic that made him join the Laborers union in 2003. His ambition, hard work and eye for detail moved him from being a laborer to field superintendent in a short amount of time. He was a Field Superintendent for Milestone. In the time that he worked for Milestone he gained not only friends but like a second family that he was honored to be a part of. A member of the Operating Engineers Union Local #841, and the Laborers Union #741.
Besides being dedicated to his work he was also dedicated to his family. His wife, their three kids and his entire extended family was his world. When he wasn’t working you could find him tinkering on a project, hunting, fishing, or farming.
He is survived by his wife Jennifer of Owensburg; his children: Reece, Morgan, and Josephine Caswell all at home; his father and step mother: Dale and Penny Caswell of Owensburg; four siblings: Amy Kines and her husband Brian of Owensburg, Brian Caswell and his wife Deanna of Springville, Caitlyn Bohall and her husband Nathan of Bloomington, and Justin Caswell of Springville; four step brothers: Eric Manion of Bloomington, Michael Manion and his wife Chelsea of Chesterton, Seth Manion and his wife Alyssa of Stanford, and Logan Manion of Bedford. his grandfather: Sam Caswell of Springville; mother in law, Cindy Robertson and her husband Steve of Springville; father in law, Gary Smith and his wife Harvetta of Williams; a brother-in-law, Josh Smith of Bedford; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his mother Tammi Caswell, his maternal grandparents, Mary and Frank Girdley; paternal grandmother, Catherine Caswell; a cousin, Johnny Caswell; grandfather in law, Maurice Smith, and Ray Tarver; and a brother in law, Joe Smith.
