ROBERT JAMES TRAVELUTE



Robert James "Bob" Travelute, 86, of Morristown, 
TN died Friday, January 2 in Harrisburg, PA with 
his beloved family by his side. He was the husband 
of Ola Bee Barefoot. The couple was married for 
53 years. 
Born in Rock Springs, WY, he was the son of the 
late Andrew Willard and Annabel (Dilley) Travelute. 
In his early years, he attended the University of 
Wyoming and was a member of Alpha Tau Omega 
Fraternity and won many awards for the UW Rodeo 
Team in the calf roping division. Before retiring, 
Bob was a cattle rancher in Daniel, WY and then a 
commercial airline pilot for Zantop Air, Overseas 
National Airways and UPS. He was a long time member 
of the Air Line Pilots Association and the National 
Rifle Association. He lived the majority of his 
life in Rock Springs and Daniel, WY (35 years), 
Lake Hopatcong, NJ (30 years) and Morristown, 
TN (20 years). Prior to his passing and with the 
decline of his health, he moved to Harrisburg, 
PA to be closer to his daughter.
 A man's man, Bob loved hunting, shooting 
competitively and the great outdoors. Everyone who 
knew him would agree that he lived life fully. 
Whether Bob was skiing, snowmobiling, sailing, boating, 
riding motorcycles, hunting large game, or rebuilding 
engines, he gave it 100%. He loved adventures and a 
good laugh. We will miss his quirky grin and 
mischievous sense of humor. 
In addition to his wife, Bob is survived by his 
daughter: Christie R. Travelute, MD and his 
grandchildren: Emma and Nicholas Ammirati. He is also 
survived by children from his first marriage to 
Georgia Haas (now deceased): his daughter: Theresa 
Travelute and her husband Mike Erler; his son: Robin 
Travelute; his daughter in law: Sarah Travelute; and 
his sister: Verona Wisniewski and her husband Mel 
Sherrill. He was preceded in death by his son: Toby P. 
Travelute; his sister: Valia Hays and his brothers: 
John and Andrew, Jr. 
Bob's family would like to thank the David Rich family 
of Morristown, TN for their enduring friendship and 
countless acts of kindness. 
Services will be held at a later date and are entrusted 
to Brian Arthur Strauch Funeral Homes and Cremation 
Services, LLC, the honored provider for the 
Pennsylvania Cremation Society. In lieu of flowers, 
memorial contributions can be made to Penn State 
Hershey Department of Dermatology Research Fund or
