September 17, 1995 - September 6, 2020
Master Trayvis Marcell Patterson journeyed on to his next life Sunday, September 6, 2020 at 24 years of age in Charleston, WV. The son of Dia SiMone Patterson and Alton Sanders was born on Sunday, September 17, 1995 in Saginaw, MI. Trayvis was given his first bat when he was just one-year old and his love for baseball began shortly after. At 22 months, he was the batboy for three youth baseball teams and was featured in the Saginaw News. As a child he played floor hockey, soccer, baseball, basketball, and football. When he was not playing sports, Trayvis loved to draw, dance, skate, listen to music, laugh with his friends, eat macaroni and cheese, and most took pride in being a father. Trayvis attended Saginaw Public Schools and graduated in 2013. He was a three-sport athlete and a 2012-2013 Homecoming Court attendant. Trayvis spent his summer vacations playing with the Saginaw Township South Little League where he later worked as an umpire and with the Saginaw Bay Riverdawgs Travel Team where he showcased his God given talents across Michigan, New York, Wisconsin, and Kentucky. Trayvis solidified his love for the game and continued his baseball career at West Virginia State University. "Patty" as he was known to his teammates- played all sides of the field as a pitcher, 2nd baseman, left and right fielder, and his favorites 3rd base and shortstop. Trayvis was an Art major and was just one class away from earning his Bachelor’s degree. Trayvis was loved everywhere he went. He was giving and unselfishly put others before himself. He worked as a caregiver with Rescare Residential and as a tattoo artist. With his creativity and passion for sketching, Trayvis envisioned his future as an arts teacher and entrepreneur. His dreams included using art to empower athletes living with depression and jumpstarting his clothing line.
