Read more about the life story of Travis and share your memory.
Travis W. Dougherty, 29 of Middleborough MA died unexpectedly on Tuesday September 5, 2023 of cardiac arrest, surrounded by family and friends. His family and friends are still in shock by their sudden loss.
Travis was born in Brockton to his parents Robin L. Carr and the late Mark Dougherty, who just recently passed in June of this year. Travis is also predeceased by his grandfather Harold J. Carr and his uncle Teddy Carr. He is survived by his loving mother Robin, his devoted sister Sārah E. Carr, his uncles Michael and Mark Carr along with the entire Dougherty family. Travis also leaves behind a loving second family, Donna, Peter, Sandy and Kelly Merzi who will always remember him and his love and support.
Although life was not easy for Travis, he fought mental illness and chose to keep fighting even when times were at their darkest. He loved connecting to others through the internet and social media, social anxiety could not stop him from these connections. Travis was known to friends, family and his social media following for his sarcastic humor. This brought him confidence. Travis also loved to cook and was the resident chef at home. When he could, he blessed others with his culinary genius. He truly loved his kitty Biv and is surely reunited with her now. He also never met a dog he didn't like.
Although, day to day was a struggle for Travis, he would try to find a moment of happiness or peace.
The family asks that in honor of Travis and his battle with mental illness please help fight the stigma and increase understanding. Please help to make seeking help for mental health a normal and safe option. Always love each other.
The family will hold a memorial service at a later date, to be determined to honor and celebrate their love for Travis.
