    September 15, 2014




    We regret to inform you of the death of Retired Colonel Wilbert T. Travers on September 14, 2014.  Our thoughts and prayers are with the Travers family at this difficult time.  We understand that there will be a private viewing for family only.  




    Col. Wilbert "Red" Thomas Travers, Jr. Maryland State Police (Ret.) of White Hall, MD, died Sunday at Upper Chesapeake Medical Center. He was 79. The son of Wilbert Thomas Travers, Sr. and Marguerite Mary Travers (Scanlon),


    Red was born November 16, 1934 in Baltimore, MD. He graduated from Glen Burnie High School in 1953, and then began a distinguished career in law enforcement when he graduated from the Maryland State Police Academy in 1957. He held every rank in the organization before being appointed Superintendent in 1982.


    In the years following his retirement from the state police in 1985, he owned a private security business and he was frequently called upon to offer his expertise in criminal cases. At the time of his passing, he had been employed at Smith Hardware in Jarrettsville, MD for more than 13 years, where he took great pleasure from helping others while indulging a life-long passion for carpentry, woodworking and hardware.


    Red was preceded in death by his parents, two brothers and two sisters, a great-granddaughter and his first wife, Patricia Lee Travers (Patterson). He leaves behind his wife, Terry A. Travers (Minton); step-daughter Nicole Minton; son Timothy Travers and his wife, Sheila of Brick, NJ; daughter Kelley Goldsmith and her husband Herb of Bastrop, TX; son Shannon Travers and his wife Andrea of Abingdon, MD; daughter Kerry Hubbard and her husband Richard of Charlotte, NC; and son Col.
