Charles Miles Travis (age 80) of Medina, TN passed from this life on Monday, September 4th, 2023 at Jackson General Hospital, surrounded by his loving family.
Charles was born in Carroll County, TN to the late Miles and Marie Featherstone Travis.
He graduated from Trezevant High School in 1960 and went on to complete his business degree at Bethel University. After completing his college degree, he joined the U.S. Army where he proudly served his country. He worked for Equifax prior to the many years of service/retirement from Milan Express.
There were many things he enjoyed during his life: singing for his church family at Gregory’s Chapel Assembly of God, listening to gospel and country music, and watching old westerns on television. He was also very attentive to his garden, that he loved sharing with others. He enjoyed yard sales and estate sales in his free time. When he wasn’t delivering/picking up cars for dealerships in the area, he also enjoyed spending time with his grandkids.
