Troy loved and valued his family. He gave respect when respect was due. His personal relationships were his priceless treasures. He didn’t invest in things; he invested in his close relationships. Troy never hesitated when called to be of service or to offer his time to care for another’s need. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed many adventures and had plans for more. Running was always his passion and he enjoyed it when he was able to go for one.
