Obituary for Christopher "Travis" Norfleet

Christopher “Travis” Norfleet, 44, of Salem passed away unexpectedly on October  23, 2023 and entered his Heavenly home.

Travis truly had a servant heart.  He dedicated the last 20 plus years working in the Cath Lab at both Carilion Roanoke Memorial Hospital and most recently Lewis-Gale Medical Center in Salem, VA.

In the words of his co-workers Travis was a ray of sunshine, always smiling, always lending a helping hand, had a true passion for helping others and would even give you the shirt off his back, if he had one on. 

Travis was always the life of the party, one who loved a good prank and being the all-around jokester.   His true passion was attending music festivals, from Floyd Fest to Rooster Walk to many in between.  He also enjoyed floating on the river with his friends, and with the one who called him Uncle TT first, his beloved niece Macie.  Travis took such pride in being Uncle TT to both Macie and Marley.

Travis enjoyed anything that had to do with being outdoors.  No shoes, No problem.

To know Travis was to love Travis.  For the ones that know GDT!!!!!

Travis is proceeded in death by his maternal grandmother, Frances “Honey” Mahaffey; paternal grandparents, Willard & Helen Norfleet; Father, Michael Norfleet; Stepmother, Connie Norfleet.

Those who are left to honor and cherish his memory are his mother, Shelby Mahaffey of Riner; Sister, Julie and Husband Todd Parsons of Salem; Sister, Taylor Norfleet of Roanoke; Nieces, Macie & Marley Parsons of Salem; Nephew Trystan Hill. The Cousins, Michelle Steele, Sheri Kosgei, Jessica Pritt and Kelsey Dudley. His furry companion, Stanley and countless friends and co-workers.
