Travis Lee Moore was born on June 8, 1940 to the late Jimmie and Pearl Jones Moore in Coryell County.  He was born at home and was the first baby that Dr. E.E.

He moved back to Mound, Texas with his family in 1960 and joined the Texas National Guard, 49th Division, the following year.  He was activated during the Berlin Crisis and was stationed at Fort Polk, Louisiana.   He was honorably discharged from the Texas National Guard in February of 1967.  He attended Durham College in 1965, receiving a certification in Air Conditioning, Refrigeration, and Heating Technology.  This certification led him to Sears in Waco, where he worked in Appliance Services from 1968 until 1975.  He then spent the remainder of his career working as a Civil Service employee for Fort Hood in AC mechanical repair until his retirement in 2003.  He was a current member of the Gatesville Masonic Lodge #197 A.F. & A.
