Vorachek Travis W. Vo- rachel 45, Grand Forks, ND died Fri- day, November 6, 2015 in a tragic ac- cident located in ru- ral Walsh County, ND. Travis Wade Vo- rachek was born July 22, 1970 in Grand Forks, the son of Paul and Debby (Huseby) Vorachek. He was raised and at- tended schools in Park River, ND, graduating from high school in Park River. Travis graduated from the University of North Dakota with a degree in Business Man- agement. He was an independent Transportation Broker who con- tracted with Freight Ex of Grand Forks, ND. Taken away from his wife, chil- dren and family way too soon, his legacy will live forever through his three beautififl children. Travis was very self-motivated and could al- ways lighten the mood of any room. He loved giving nicknames to his family and everyone else around him. He was obsessed with his lawn. He strived for perfection and could create the greatest meals. Anything he set his mind too, he would achieve. His children and family were his world. Travis was very much of an outdoorsman who created his own website,, devoted to his hunting and fishing adventures. He enjoyed time at the lake with his family. He named his hunting trail- er bandwagon (license plate reads BANWAGN). Travis also played and enjoyed numer- ous sports including softball, gold bas- ketball, and was a soccer coach. Travis married Julie Kadlec on Sep- tember 3, 1994. She survives along with their children, Syd- ney Ann, Samantha Catherine and Jacob Travis, all of Grand Forks; sister, Shosti (Jim Guidry) Vorachek, Boise, ID; brother, Kyle (Amy) Vorachek and their children, Rayni, Reece and Jax- on, Bismarck, ND; parents, Paul and Debby Vorachek, Park River, ND; grandmother, Anna-Marie Huse- by, Grand Forks; mother and father- in-law, Louis D. and Sharon Kadlec, Grand Forks; sister-in-law, Kathy (Brian) Englerth and their chil- dren, Austin and Taylor, ; brother- in-law, Louis A. (Jen) Kadlec and their daughter, Chloe, Pisek, ND; sister-in-law, Andrea Donais and her children, Ella and Jonah, Moorhead, MN; brother-in-law, John (Amy) Kadlec and their children, Carson and Levi, Pisek, ND. Travis was preceded in death by Iris grandparents, Casper Huseby, Roger and Viola Vorachek. Mass and Celebration of Life were held at 11:00 AM Saturday, November 14, 2015 at Holy Fam- ily Catholic Church of Grand Forks.
