Anthony Traves, or Traves as he was known by those who loved him, was kindhearted and would lend a helping hand to anyone in need. If he saw someone struggling, he would go out of his way to help them in any way he could. He lit up rooms with his presences and could lift spirits when they were feeling blue. His since of humor was sure to get whole rooms roaring with deep belly laughter making happiness contagious with his words. He knew what it meant to be a lost soul and never wanted to see that hurt in others. The world was a better place while he was in it. You will be greatly missed.

Services will be held on Oct. 26 at 11 a.m. at Wabash Friends Church in Wabash.
