Travis W. Alberts


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

Born in Coshocton on Oct. 3, 1971, Travis is the son of John William and Marilyn Eileen (Hoffman) Alberts, Jr. After graduating from Ridgewood High School in 1990, he continued his formal education at Walsh University, obtaining a bachelor's degree in business and finance.

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 Tuscarawas County Fair. Many are aware of his hat collection, which spans many years and fills many Tupperware tubs.

Travis 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; numerous friends and community members; and his dog, Mocha.

Visitation will be held Thursday, Feb. 7 from 1-3 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. at NewPointe Community Church in Dover. A funeral service led by Pastors Joe Schulz and Rich VanArsdalen will be held Friday, Feb. 8 in the church at 11 a.m. 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.
