He was born Russell Roe Travis in Blyth, California where he resided with his sister Patricia and his parents, Russell Rose Sr. and Hazel Elizabeth Travis. They lived in Blyth for about five years when the two children were moved to Calgary in Canada to stay with their grandmother. After two years, they moved back to La Nita, California. Sometime later they moved to Paradise, California where Russ attended and graduated Paradise Junior High School. He then moved to Torrance, California and later graduated from St. Anthony's in Long Beach, California. Following high school Russ attended the University of Southern California.

Russ was married to his high school sweetheart, Joannie. To this marriage was born two children, one year apart on the same birth date. Robin Grace Travis Kassit and (Rusty) Russell Roe Travis III. Robin is deceased. She and her husband had three children, a son, Korey Kassir, in California, a daughter, Kayla Kassir, in Colorado and another daughter, Kelly Kassir, in California.

During their marriage Russ worked for McDonald Douglas for a while. He was working in Torrance, California at a new position and he was anxious to advance to another job which was better position and better pay. He didn't' even know where the cafeteria was but he quit that job and applied at Aero Jet where he got an excellent job as a planner and expediter. He later worked for Lockheat in California, every position he had he did an excellent job.

After their marriage dissolved Russ eventually married Jane Lambert. She and Russ traveled all over making and selling Southwestern American Indian Jewelry. This job took them to Sturgis, North Dakota every year to the bike ralley until Jane became ready to settle down to a home. She then passed away.
Later and 1999 Russ and Margie Smith were married and lived very happily for 13 years.

His favorite past time was going to church and visiting with our church family. He loved participating in the sharing in Sunday school class. He loved the Lord so much.
