Travis Sterling Volpe, 30, of Holly Springs, formerly of Cary, passed away Friday, March 17, 2017.

Travis was born March 30, 1986, to Robert W. and Tiffin Lichfield Volpe in Provo, Utah on an Easter Sunday. He lived in Connecticut until the age of 6, and spent the rest of his childhood in Cary, NC. He earned the rank of Eagle Scout with Boy Scout Troop 31. He served an LDS Mission to Winnipeg, Canada for two years, and later graduated from Utah Valley University and spent his career in sales and marketing. He most recently enjoyed his dream job at iHeartRadio. He loved guns and shooting, boating, hockey, traveling the world, every type of music, neon colors, his dogs, cake, and Capri Suns. He won Ashlee's heart in large part because of the instant bond he had with Isabell, and he happily and proudly took on the role of father. His brothers both considered him their best friend.

"Internationally known and locally respected", Travis was a master story-teller, exaggerator, and embellisher who was loved by every soul who met him. Warmth radiated from his huge heart, and he left laughter wherever he went. T-bone, DJ Travvy-Trav, Chicken Legs, Soup Man, and Stick Boy will be sorely missed.

He is survived by his wife Ashlee Volpe and stepdaughter Isabell Jade Alvarado, parents Bob and Tiffin Volpe, sister Stefani Passey (Phillip), and brothers Brenan Volpe (Shannon) and Quin Volpe. He was also very important in the lives of his nephews and nieces Addison, Cooper, Italia, Haven, and Kasen, his grandparents, Sandra Lichfield, Arlene Volpe, Bob & Judy Volpe and many uncles and aunts.

A funeral service will be held at 3:00 p.m. Thursday, March 23, 2017 at The Church of Jesus Christ of the Latter Day Saints in Apex. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service. Burial will follow at Holly Springs Cemetery.
