Gunnar Travis Medearis

Gunnar Travis Medearis, age 15 of Nixa, passed away Tuesday, March 9, 2021. He was born April 18, 2005 in Springfield, the son of Lindsay Travis and Rusty Medearis. Gunnar was full of joy and lived his life with great wonder. He fearlessly rode motorcycles and loved to proudly show racing videos to all. Gunnar was an expert Minecraft player, and could tell you everything about the game. His favorite color was green. He was very athletic. Gunnar enjoyed playing basketball, and racing his friends to show them that he was always the fastest. He was really excited about being part of the Nixa High School Track team. Gunnar always had great strength. At the age of three, he began his upper body strengthening routine by lifting the garage door up and then down, over and over and over. He loved to make everyone laugh and his laugh was infectious. He has left a forever impact on all who knew him. Survivors include his parents; Lindsay Rice of Nixa, and Rusty Medearis and partner Amanda Squires of Springfield; stepfather Brian Rice of Nixa; his sister, Jena Lee Medearis of Nixa; stepsisters, Faith Rice and Avery Cook; stepbrother, Beau Rice; his grandma (Gree) Marty Travis. His grandparents John and Nancy Lee Huff, Paul Medearis, Linda (Grinny) Wommack. Gunnar has joined his beloved Poppy, Jim Travis, in heaven. A celebration of life will be held at 6:00 P.M. Monday, March 22, 2021, at North Point Church, Nixa, under direction of Adams Funeral Home, Nixa, officiated by Pastor Brad Fox, preceded by a visitation from 5-6 P.M. at the church.

Gunnar was so kind and loving to everyone. He loved giving high fives in the hallways and always had a smile on his face. He will be missed.
