UPDATE: Man Killed in Snowmobile Crash in Snowy Range Identified
A Florida man killed in a snowmobile crash in southeast Wyoming's Snowy Range earlier this month has been identified.
According to a fatality crash summary from the Wyoming Highway Patrol, 47-year-old Travis Just was snowmobiling on Ehlin Road (Forest Service Road 338) west of Centennial around 1 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 4, when he hit a tree.
Just was wearing a helmet but was pronounced dead at the scene.
The fatality crash summary did not list any possible contributing factors.
According to a GoFundMe page set up to support Just's wife and 11-year-old twins, the entrepreneur and well-known bodybuilder was in Wyoming on a birthday trip.
"Travis had a bigger than life personality, unmatched energy, and a heart larger than this universe. Anyone that had the pleasure to come in contact with Trav can attest that he was an absolute Icon and this world is a better place because he was in it. He had a way to make anyone around him feel like they were the most important person in the world and no obstacle could stop them. He truly was a world changer and our lives already feel so empty knowing he isn’t physically with us anymore," the page reads.
Since its creation on Feb. 5, the page has raised more than $69,000.
