Travis T. Beemer

 A Energetic and Vibrant Soul -

Travis T. Beemer, age 28, of Camp Hill, was taken from his family far too soon when he passed away on Sunday, July 30, 2017 in Camp Hill.  Travis was born on Thursday, May 4, 1989 in Harrisburg to Timothy Gregory Beemer and Suzette (Shumaker) Ojea.  He is preceded in death by his grandfather, Louis Beemer.

Travis graduated from Cedar Cliff High School as part of the class of 2008.  He was an avid hiker and his passion for the outdoors began at a young age. Travis shared and enjoyed this part of his life with his family and many friends.  He held a deep appreciation for his family’s recipes and his love for foods of others cultures was endless.  Travis liked to travel and he had many friends from coast to coast.

Suzette, I am at a loss for words as no words can explain what you and your family is going through.I remember Travis so well as a little kid, the fun times that Nathaniel, Lance and Travis had during our boating times. Please let God wrap you in his loving arms and keep your family safe. Losing a child is so terribly wrong and it is something you will never get over, but you will find it easier as time goes by. Always remember to keep him in you memories and speak of him daily. This seems to help me with the loss of my son Rich. We lost him to the same thing that you lost Travis to. If you ever want to talk, maybe a shoulder to lean on, I know what you are going through. just email me. My sympathies to your family.

I remember the very day Travis was born. He was so very LOVED each and everyday of his life. His Mom, my dear friend of over 30 years is an amazing single mom. She did it ALL for her wonderful boys. He loved adventure and was very daring even at a very early age. That smile, those dimples, his fearless nature. Yes, he was loved intensely every minute of everyday by his Mom, his amazing Grandparents, his brother and I am sure by so many others. My heart, love and many Prayers for the peace that surpasses all human understanding goes out to you Suzette, Lance, Violet, Ken and Dale.

Suzette, Lance, Ken and Violet,
So very sorry for your loss; we know there are no words that can ease your pain. My parents buried my twin sister at a very young age of 14; no parent should have to bury their children. Our only advice is to let him live within you all and we hope that time will somehow ease you pain. We love you and will keep you all in our prayers, Ron, Marie, RJ and Chrustopher.

Suzette & Family,

I am so sorry to hear of your loss and can't begin to imagine what you are going through. I only wish that you are able to remember the brightest and happiest memories that you've had with Travis and that those will help you during this time. If there is anything I can do, please let me know. Although I did not know him personally, I know how happy he made the lives of those around him. I send my condolences and prayers to everyone.

Travis and I had a special teacher/student relationship during his 4 years at Cedar Cliff. We became friends and remained friends after his graduation. He would comment that " you know me too well". He will be missed so much.
The first time I met Travis he was a 9th grader in my class. I remember him sitting at his desk only being able to put his elbows on the desk. You see, both his arms from the elbow to his wrist were brush burned. All students had an ice breaker activity to do to get to know each other. When Travis presented his information he said nothing about his arms. During the Q&A nobody asked. I couldn't let it go, so I asked him what happened to his arms. He said he was with friend and they all wanted to go somewhere and there wasn't enough room in the car so he held on to the car riding on his skateboard. He didn't make the turn and flew onto the road. In addition he was knocked unconscious and his mother was called. Adventurists Beemer!
I could count on Travis answering questions I had about new slang terms. Even my daughter and some colleagues refused to explain them. He would just tell me what they meant, no matter what and neither of us would be embarrassed.
Over the years Travis became a good friend to my daughter and me. They even went to senior prom together. He would always connect with us when he was back in PA to catch up on our lives. He was always happy, caring and giving.
Even though teachers shouldn't have favorites, Travis was my favorite student of all time in my 30+ years of teaching. I was lucky to get a chance to know him.
I love you Travis Beemer. You will be missed by me and many!!!

To Travis's family,
We send our prayers and our deepest sympathies in the lost of Travis, know that we are keeping all of you in our prayers. We never had the honor of meeting Travis, but we know his brother Lance, and we know that he comes from a great family. When you have a private moment read Psalms 16, it has always given us comfort in the lost of a love one.

Suzette and Tim: It is with deepest sympathy that I write today. I remember when you were pregnant with Travis and the day he was born. What a beautiful baby boy! I also remember him being Kate's first friend after she was born. He was so excited to see the "new" baby when you came to visit us when she was just a few days old! My heart is broken as I know how much you truly loved him. There are no words that I could possibly say that will ease your heartache! Please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers. We have many friends who have lost children in the same manner. God Bless you and give you strength to carry on! 💞 Please pass our thoughts and prayers on to your entire family.

To your family....Our hearts are broken again. If there is any peace that we can find in this huge tragedy, is that Travis and Marshall are building a ramp to snowboard off and arguing as to who will go first. We still see those beautiful smiles that made our day and will never forget. We love you both. Lee Shipman and Deb

Kevin and I are heartbroken. Travis was such a positive soul and a pleasure to be around. I will never forget that radiant smile and sparkling eyes, that conveyed so much life and fun. He was curious, and respectful when he visited our home. How could you not fall in love with him right away? Many warm prayers for the repose of his soul. We pray for comfort for our dear friends, Tim -Travis's Dad who worked so hard over these last few years to assist, and Jeannie who loved and connected with Travis. And for his mother and the whole family. He was a good young man who brought so much joy. Our prayer is for peace and comfort for the whole family, and all those who knew and loved Travis. Until we meet again... And we will. Rest in peace dear Travis.
