On Saturday, March 7, 2020, in Jacksonville, Florida, Darryl Miles Travalee, a loving son and father of two children passed away at the age of 39.

Darryl was born June 3, 1980, in Denver, Colorado to his parents, AT1 Inez Travalee (retired Navy) and Darryl Gwaltney.

He received his high school diploma from Florida Community College at Jacksonville (FCCJ) and attended college at FCCJ. Darryl studied computer technology and studied carpentry at United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America.

In his early years, Darryl traveled the world with his mother, Inez. His journey started when they were stationed at Naval Air Station Lemoore, California. Beginning at the age of 3 years old, he grew up at Naval Station Rota in Cadiz, Spain; Naval Air Station Jacksonville, Florida; and Naval Air Station Sigonella in Sicily, Italy. Darryl also lived in Hampton, Virginia; Schenectady, New York; Troy, New York; and lastly, Jacksonville, Florida.

During the time of living in Sigonella, Darryl played basketball, baseball, and soccer with the Sigonella Youth Athletic Association. He practiced soccer with the local Sicilian kids. He was in the boys Scouts and had the privilege to participate in the International Scouting Jamboree in Italy, earning various merits and badges. He also played little league baseball in Schenectady, New York.

Darryl had a passion for computers and loved and installed car audio systems. He combined his two favorite hobbies to create extraordinary projects. His knowledge with computers was admired not only by friends and family, but also by a local school where he helped reprogram an entire computer lab where he had attended. He was a music lover and collector of Star Wars and Star Trek memorabilia.

Darryl was well known for always being sleepy when friends and family had contact with him. From this, he earned the nickname, “SLEEPY”, which he will always be remembered by.

Darryl was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents, Lucy and Cecil Travalee. He is survived by his mother, Inez Travalee; the mother of his children, Erica Bell; his two children, Isaiah and Jaynai Travalee; aunts, Yvonne Travalee (Troy, NY), Joyce Travalee Sapp (Jacksonville, FL), Beverly Travalee (Scotia, NY), Cecila Travalee Horn (Reidsville, NC), and Kathryn Travalee (Syracuse, NY).
