RIP Kris Travis - 1983-2016 - another Owl flies

Recommended Posts

A few of you guys on here will have known Kris as a wrestler or an Owl. He was a genuinely lovely guy and I had the honour of being his friend for the last year of his life. 



"This afternoon we heard the devastating news that our loyal friend and Patron, Kris Travis, has passed away from cancer at 32 years old. Kris was a true gentleman, a superstar of the wrestling world and a loving family man.


We first met Kris back in June 2015, when he agreed to play in a charity football match for us – as long as he could wear blue and white. A huge Sheffield Wednesday fan, he smiled proudly as he stepped out alongside some of his footballing heroes, and also managed to win a penalty for his side in true dramatic wrestler fashion.

When Kris was told his cancer had returned, it was a shock to everybody who knew and supported him. The entire wrestling community got behind him in his fundraising for us and it really meant the world to him.

On behalf of everybody at Cavendish Cancer Care; our thoughts are with the family and friends of Kris at this sad time.
