Travis Shaundell Fauntleroy, age 42, of Warsaw, Virginia passed away peacefully on Saturday, February 10, 2024, at home. Travis was born on July 3, 1981, to Harold L. Fauntleroy and Lisa Fauntleroy.
Travis was known for his love of sports, and being a coach but also for having a huge heart, especially with his family and all of his bonus community kids. Travis coached football and basketball for well over 10 years and touched many lives. He could see a kid for one practice and tell you about what that child’s position should be and what they needed to do to bring out the best of them. He lived for game days and traveling to games and tournaments to show the kids that there was so much more to the world than what they saw locally. He had big dreams to open a facility for all sports, a safe place for kids, and a place where they could work on their talents, dreams, and even get help with their schoolwork.
Travis was a member of Second Baptist Church since early childhood.
Travis had a lot of health challenges, but he never let them hinder him from coaching and supporting the kids. No matter which county or sport, if he could show up, he did. He was very big on discipline and displaying manners. No matter where he was, what the conversation was about, and with whom he made every one of his children know to respond with “Yes Sir,” and “Yes Ma’am.” etc. He was a good man, father, son, uncle, and godfather. He spent his last years at basketball courts and football fields doing what he loved, mentoring kids and teaching them valuable life lessons along the way.
Travis served in the United States Army and received a medical discharge after a training exercise injury.
Travis leaves to cherish his memories, his wife of nineteen years Teena Fauntleroy; mother, Lisa Fauntleroy; three children, Nastasia, Xavian, and Kaleb Fauntleroy; 2 brothers Brandon, and Kevin Fauntleroy, Sr.; 6 sisters-in-law: Margaret Smith, Victoria Fauntleroy, Deleahe Ball, Shakerra Veney, Jessica Veney, and Brittany Brooks; brother-in-law: Thomas Smith; mother-in-law, Clara Smith’ father-in-law, Thomas Smith, Sr.; and William Day; 22 nieces and nephews; 9 godchildren, a host of aunts, uncles, and cousins, three which are considered sisters: Angel Brown, Katherine Veney and Shakina Veney; and a young man he considered his son, Demetrius Parker. Travis was preceded in death by his father, Harold Fauntleroy
The family would like to express our sincere thanks to Fresenius Kidney Care of Tappahannock for taking great care of Travis for years and to the entire community for their continued love and support throughout the years of his sickness.
