    Troy always had a smile on his face. His conversations were usually good natured and positive. Like when he and Orma Jeanne were a couple, I don’t ever remember them arguing about anything, ever. I carried a football on a basketball and a soft baseball, not so much to start a game but more to start an argument about who could kick that football the farthest. Troy and I were the first ones to go outside and see who can kick the football the farthest, without falling on our butt. That was easier said than done since we kind of liked our pitcher beer. I’m 71 and you just don’t go to the bars like you used to. I really miss those days, and the friendships and it was because of people like Troy. He will be dearly missed.

    I knew Troy for few years of my life.he loved his mother so much and when she called him on the phone his face would light up.Always talked about his children and so proud. He talk about Marge and always loved her and said she will always be there till the end and she was. He left this world to early but maybe God needed him more.
