In memory of
Charles Travis Brannon
Charles Travis Brannon Nashville - Born into a military family on February 3, 1952 to Phillip Clyde (deceased, 2012, USMC) and Sara Ruth Brannon, Charles TRAVIS Brannon was off to a life of non-stop adventure alongside his brother, Todd C. (USNA). Upon graduation from Overton H.S. in 1970, his next exploits began at the U.S. Naval Academy, studying aerospace engineering and meeting close comrades who he still loves dearly. He finished flight school in Pensacola, was assigned to fly the F-4 Phantom in Virginia Beach, and went on to Top Gun, flying the F/A-18 and covering 4,000 hours in 30+ types of aircraft. Upon departure from the Navy, he completed medical school at University of Tennessee in Memphis, where he met and married his extraordinary wife Susan A. in 1984. She gave them two unbelievable legacies, Travis Walker (deceased, 2019, USMC helicopter pilot) and Patrick Collin (USMC). Travis loved flying the southeast, enjoying the gulf coast, fishing, skiing, sailing, and golf with his many friends as a 30-year member of Hillwood Country Club. His life was full of joy and laughter.
