Travis Lee Raisch-Fairbanks

July 3, 1985 ~ June 20, 2022 (age 36)

Travis Lee Raisch-Fairbanks, age 36, of Cass Lake, began his spiritual journey on Monday, June 20, 2022, at the Cass Lake IHS with his family by his side. He was born on July 3, 1985, in Bemidji, the son of Karen Raisch and Brian Lego, Sr.

Travis was a very giving, generous person who was always the first one to help you out. He cared a lot and made sure his family was okay. Travis lost the love of his life, Amber Raisch-Fairbanks on April 17, 2021. Together they built a home for their six children. He had a lot of hurdles in his life, but he always had a smile, a joke, or a cigarette for you. He had not yet recovered from the loss of his wife, but the family can know that he's with Amber and his parents again.

The family that Travis joins again are his wife, Amber; parents, Karen and Brian; grandparents; sister, Naomi Blue-Lego; uncles, Jake Blue, Les Headbird; cousins, Patrick Bellanger, Michael Bellanger; and niece, Rael Fisherman.

Those he leaves behind to cherish his memory are his six children: Ieeshia, Kendall, Kayden, Kaylee, Illiana and his only son, Keith; mother-in-law, Judy Fairbanks; brother, Brian LaGou, Jr., sister; Tammi Cloud, aunties: Carol Blue, Jody Bellanger, Carrie Bellanger, and Candace LaGou, uncles: Jim Bellanger (Who he was residing with), Joe LaGou, and Frank Raisch, nephews, Steve, Keevin, and Memphis; many cousins, Crystal, Rikki, Cy, Jackie, Melvin, Arnie, Yvonne, Carrie, Ron, Ang, Jon, and Chuck; other relatives and many friends.

A wake for Travis will begin at 8:00 p.m., Wednesday, June 22, 2022, and will continue until the 10:00 a.m. service on Friday, June 29, all held at the Mission Community Center in Cass Lake. Spiritual advisor will be Allen Hardy. Pallbearers for Travis will be Steve, Cy, Keevin, Jon, Memphis, Brian, and Byron. Honorary pallbearers will be Frank, Carol, Ron S., Carrie, Jody, Judy, Terry, all his children, cousins, and many family members.
