Travis Ott, 28, of Blissfield was taken home to be with the Lord on Thursday, October 24, 2013 with his loving mother and sisters holding his hands. He was surrounded by a room full of family and friends.
Travis was an avid motorcycle rider and there was little else he enjoyed more then riding his Harley, which he built. He also enjoyed spending all the time he could with his faithful best friend, MoJo, who he brought home as a puppy on his Harley, tucked into his jacket. Travis enjoyed fishing, spending time with family and friends, working on his Bachelor Degree, and living life to it's fullest. He also enjoyed the Detroit Redwings, and was an avid shopper on Ebay. His interests also included drawing, restoring his corvette, swap meets and flea markets, and he gave generously his time volunteering along side his mother at multiple UAW fundraisers.
Travis received his Associates Degree in Criminal Justice in 2013 from ITT and was currently enrolled at Lourdes University working to complete his BA in Criminal Justice. He was an "A" student, and took great pride and honor in his studies. Travis enjoyed spending time with his nieces and nephews who meant the world to him and he was always there to mentor them and attending their school functions. He was the definition of strength and bravery, and was admittedly a "momma's boy". He was a hero to many and a source of strength for his family and friends. Travis loved this time of year, the colors, Halloween, scary movies, and trick-or-treating with his nieces and nephews.
Travis is deeply loved and missed by his mother, Kim Ott, Blissfield, who never wavered at dropping all else to be at his side, which he knew the lengths she went to; his father, Dan (Roxanne) Ott, Swanton, OH, who worked along side him restoring his corvette and riding their Harleys; sisters, Renee, (Jim) Wheeler, Danielle Ott, and Bailey Ott; seven nieces and nephews who adored him; his loving aunt, Brenda (Gary Martin) Westfall, and Uncle David (Janni) Smith, who he enjoyed spending time and joking with; cousins who were like brothers to him and he could always count on them to "stir things up"; his maternal grandmother, Naoma ("Gol-Darn-It-Yosh) Kastel, and paternal grandmother, Rosemary Ott; several life-long, solid as a rock friends, who he adored and loved hanging with; and lastly, his beloved MoJo, who he spent every second he could with.
He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, Fritz Smith, and paternal grandfather, Karl Ott.
Family and friends may visit Friday, November 1st from 2 to 8 pm at the Weigel Funeral Home, 413 E. Main St. in Metamora (419.644.3601). The family will receive family and friends on Saturday, November 2, 2013 from 10:00 a.m. till 12:00 p.m. (noon) in the funeral home with funeral services beginning at 12:00 p.m. (noon), with Rev. Donna Stutzman officiating. Interment will follow at Ogden Township Cemetery.

I remember you talking about Travis when we worked together and you were always there for him no matter what. I pray that you take comfort in knowing that you are an awesome mother and I know that Travis knew he was truly blessed to call you Mom.

Dan, do you remember when I brought my beloved Evergreen fifth grade classes to your school? I have asked Rebecca and Marty Ott about you. She wrote to me about your son.
