Troy served his country proudly by enlisting in the United States Marine Corps and having served a tour in Vietnam. After his enlistment he enjoyed competitive shooting and his biggest love was racing sprint cars. Troy was an excellent teacher and mentor that instilled a strong sense of values and determination in all of his children. He had an iron fist but a loving and generous heart to those in need. Troy believed strongly in building strong relationships and loved everyone he knew. He was a devoted and loving dad, grandpa, and great grandpa. Troy will be missed by all and never forgotten.
