Troy was an instant friend to all who met him. God bless you Noreen, and I appreciate you and Troy always taking the time to speak with me and catch up after the holiday concerts. Condolences to his family.
Noreen and Family,
I am sorry to hear of your loss. The last time I saw Troy was at, I believe, our 20th high school reunion. I remember visiting with him and you for a bit. It was one of my fondest memories of the reunion. He was a good man and the world will be a lesser place without him.
My heart goes out to you and your family Doreen. I hope happy memories and your faith ease your grief and give you strength. Sending you my love and hugs!
Kyle and I are so thankful for the time we shared with you and Troy, especially the evening at the lake when the boat broke down. The extra time to sit and enjoy each other and laugh about our circumstance now is tucked away as a treasured memory. Thank you for sharing yourselves with us.
I’m sorry we could not join you in person but we are there in spirit and watching the service. He was a wonderful man and we will all mis him.
I am so sorry to hear of Troy’s passing. I went to school with Troy at Holy Spirit and Shanley and he was an absolute light of a person–always kind, always gentle. The world would be a better place if we could replicate Troy a few million times over. I remember visiting with him and Noreen again at our 20th year reunion and noticing how much he clearly adored his wife, Noreen, and how happy he seemed. I am so very sad that he’s gone.
My sincere sympathy is extended to Norene, Homer, Troy’s family, and many friends during this very difficult time. Prayers continue for your strength, comfort, and peace.
I remember Troy as being so friendly, and I enjoyed talking with him whenever I saw him. May all of the good memories you have with Troy bless your hearts.
