Travis W. Alberts, 47, of New Philadelphia died Saturday, February 2, 2019 in Mercy Medical Center at Canton.

Born in Coshocton on October 3, 1971, Travis is the son of John William Alberts, Jr. and Marilyn Eileen (Hoffman) Alberts.

After graduating from Ridgewood High School in 1990, he continued his formal education at Walsh University obtaining a bachelors degree in business and finance.

Presently, Travis was working his “dream job” as the Chief Operations Officer for New Philadelphia City Schools. He also was an avid fan for all Quaker athletics, but greatly enjoyed coaching the boys’ varsity basketball and freshman football teams.

To many students and his own children, Travis was fondly known as, “Mr. New Philadelphia.” Whether he was a fan at his kids’ functions or volunteering as a member of the New Philadelphia Rotary Club, he had a heart for the community and its people.

Travis was proud of his membership with the Coshocton Community Choir and had a great love for autumn in the valley, always attending the Coshocton County Fair. Many are aware of his hat collection, which spans many years and fills many Tupperware tubs.

He will be deeply missed by his family, including his children, Cameron, Alexandra “Allie”, and Ashlyn Alberts; his parents, John and Marilyn Alberts, Jr. of West Lafayette; his sister, Kelly (Gordon) Kendall of Coshocton; his former wife, Kelli Alberts; extended family, Diane (Kevin) Meek, Kendall, Kassidy, and Kristian Meek, Wayne and Lynne Hoffman, Lisa (Bruce) Neumann, and Karen (Bill) Dwyer; his girlfriend, Carrie Collins; in addition to numerous friends and community members, and his dog, Mocha.

Visitation will be held Thursday, February 7, 2019 from 1 to 3 PM and 6 to 8 PM at NewPointe Community Church in Dover. A funeral service led by Pastors Joe Schulz and Rich VanArsdalen will be held Friday, February 8, 2019 in the church at 11 AM. Burial will follow in Evergreen Burial Park.

Memorial contributions in Travis’ memory may be directed to the Quaker Club, 248 Front Ave. SW, New Philadelphia, OH 44663.

We will sadly miss our nephew Travis Alberts. He was the youngest of the Hoffman Cousins, and we knew him from the time he was born. Our granddaughters now communicate with his children on social media, even though they have only met in person once. We remember visiting when Travis was an infant; he was a sweet baby, and continued to be a ray of sunshine throughout his life. Wayne and Lynn Hoffman

I am so sorry to hear about Travis. I worked with him at Zimmer and he always spoke of you kids. Please remember that you three kids were his world. Travis was a kind sole and will be missed.


Joe Welker posted on 2/5/19

Kelly & kids - I’m so sorry for your loss. Travis is a great guy and I’ll always remember him for his competitiveness- I was officiating an adult league game he was playing in and I didn’t give him a call on a shot. He gave me heck (putting it cleanly) all the way to the other end of the court!!!


Marianne Pritchard posted on 2/5/19

I am so sorry to hear this about Travis. He was my interim boss for a time at Zimmer. I thought he was very fair and tried to treat everyone with respect and understanding. He was very involved in his new job, his family and community. I nick named him The next Mayor of Philly. Factory work was definitely not his calling and I was so happy to see him change that. My last day of work after 43 years at Zimmer Travis came in and gave me a big tight hug and told me how proud he was of me. I feel terrible for his children and hope and pray for them and their future.

Not only our community, but the earth itself has lost an AMAZING man; however God has gained an equally amazing soul. Travis was a man who was always there with a smile and fist bump for anyone. If I ever needed to know what was going on within the Quaker Nation, Travis would have it posted on his Facebook page. You are going to missed and there will always be a spot in all Quakers Hearts for you Travis. My Thoughts and Prayers go out to Cameron, Allie, Ashlyn and every member of the Alberts Family!!! Fly High Travis and I am sure all of heaven will be part of Quaker Nation soon... RIP
