Richard Scott Traver

January 25, 1951 - November 2, 2022

Richard “Scott” Traver passed peacefully at his home in Bremerton, WA on November 2, 2022, at the age of 71. He passed after a short but gallant fight with lung cancer. Scott was born on January 25th, 1951 in Lewiston, ID as the third child to Theodore Richard Traver and Florence Evelyn (Hull) Traver. He has two older brothers, Thomas (& Karen) Traver, James (& Marta) Traver, and one younger sister, Ruth Ann (& Steven) Choate. The family moved from Coeur d’Alene, ID when Scott was still young to Portland, OR where he grew up and met his wife, Deborah Ann (Claypool) Traver.

Following job opportunities, the young couple were led north to Anchorage, AK in 1981 where they lived for over 25 years. Scott worked hard in construction, specializing in drywall and finishing work. In Alaska he had his two children, Amanda Rae Traver and Rachel Kathryn Traver. They moved to Bremerton in 2005 and have lived in the area since. He enjoyed collecting things, specifically stamps and coins, he loved to fish and camp, he found joy in puttering around the house, and spending time with his family. He was a cherished father and husband. His sense of humor always kept his loved ones laughing.

Scott is survived by his wife, Deborah Ann Traver of Bremerton; his daughters, Amanda Rae Traver and Rachel Kathryn Traver, both of Billings, MT; his siblings, Thomas (& Karen) Traver, James (& Marta) Traver, and Ruth Ann (& Steven) Choate, all of Portland, OR; and a multitude of nieces and nephews; and great nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his parents, Theodore Richard Traver and Florence Evelyn (Hull) Traver.
