Travis Walter Blaski, 31, of Leavenworth. After a long hard battle our son went home Saturday, May 5, 2012, at the University of Kansas Hospital. He was born May 22, 1980, in Kansas City, Kan., the eldest son of Kenny and Linda (Goetting) Blaski.
Travis was KU’s number one fan regardless the sport. Basketball was his passion and he knew every stat of every player college and pro, whoever played the game.
Our son leaves behind his parents; his brothers, Chris and Tony Blaski; a special niece, Jessica; his maternal grandmother, Jean Goetting; several aunts, uncles and cousins; and some amazing friends including a very special friend Sara.
He was preceded in death by two aunts, Deborah Kearney and Peggy Harvey; and an uncle, Dennis Blaski.
Travis requests that everyone be comfortable and show their KU pride in someway.
Visitation will be from 6 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, May 9, 2012, at the R.L. Leintz Funeral Home. A funeral service will be at 10 a.m. Thursday at the funeral home. Burial will follow at Easton Cemetery. Memorials are suggested in memory of his aunt Debbie to ALS.
