It is with deep sadness we announce the sudden passing of Travis Michael Killen, age 26. Travis passed on Saturday, October 21, 2023 in Fort Lawrence, NS, as a result of a motor vehicle accident.

Born in Amherst, he was the son of Tammy DiMichele, and the late Lee Killen.

Travis enjoyed spending time with family and friends but especially enjoyed time with the love of his life Sara and making his son Ace laugh and smile. He was an amazing dad to Ace and couldn't wait till Ace was old enough to be able to teach him how to play sports and wrestle around with him. He also loved rapping and music.

Travis faced many struggles in his life and had just recently turned his life around to better times when tragedy struck.

In addition to his mother Tammy and Step-Father Darren Coates of Fort Lawrence, Travis is deeply missed by his Partner and Mother of his child Sara Gabriel (Fort Lawrence); Brothers Justin (Lindsay) DiMichele; and Dominick Coates of Amherst; Sister Alexis (Nigel) Gallant of PEI ; and Step-sister Allie (Tanner) Coates of Springhill; Nieces Paisley and Gabby and Nephew Tucker. Maternal Grandparents Sheila DiMichele (Amherst) and Robert (April) DiMichele of Ontario; Paternal Grandmother Leah Killen (Springhill); Aunts Anna (Ted), Christine (Sean) of Amherst, Sonia (Ontario) and Leanna (Matt) of Springhill, Uncles David (Vicky) and Roberto Jr. (Ontario); including all of his many cousins and friends.

Travis passed in the same accident as his son Ace Adam Malachai Gabriel-Killen, and his mother in law Amanda Gabriel.

He was predeceased by his Father Lee Killen, and Paternal Grandfather Len Killen.

Arrangements are under the care and guidance of Jones Family Funeral Centre, 70 Church Street, Amherst, NS (902-667-8777) where a funeral service remembering Travis' life will be held on Wednesday, November 1, 2023 at 2 pm.
