To the family; I wish you all well amd share your sorrow during these times. For Troy; You were one of the first faces I met moving to West Richland and I fondly remember our late night runs and your support in the early years. I was repeatedly astonished by the difficult hands you were dealt and the positive manner in which you were able to face each one. I wish you peace and I know you will continue to watch over your family you loved so much.
Troy was an amazing person, whom we will miss greatly. Troy had too many great qualities to name them all, but I will most miss his ability to make everyone laugh, even in the most difficult of situations. Troy’s dancing skills the robot and the “spank you dance,” to name a few were unparalled, and his versions could make me laugh til I cried! It makes me smile to think how Troy must be making everyone in Heaven laugh! We love you, Troy, and look forward to the day that we will see you again!
Troy was an inspiration to many of us with his tremendous courage, strenth and faith. Gwen, we love you and pray for you and the girls and Danny every day that God will comfort you and sustain you in this most trying time. Of course we know Troy’s relationship with God secures him life everlasting. But our hearts go out to you and the entire family because Troy will be missed until the day we all can be reunited. Sorry we are so far away in times like these. But we are there in our love and spirit. Bless you!
Troy was a great person! Stacey and I really enjoyed being around him. He always made us laugh no matter where we were or what we were doing! You will always be in our hearts and prayers!
No amount of words can express how sorry I am for your loss. I have never met such a hard working and loving family such as your own. you will be in my thoughts and prayers daily, stay strong and God Bless…
Troy was a great boss and a hard worker. He thought of his family first and himself last. Although I only knew him for a short time I think of him often because he was a unique person. God bless you Troy, and God bless your family.

Troy I will miss you and never forget all the great ways you made my life better as a brother and a friend! Love You!
It was with deep sadness that Troy had to leave this world. The only joy that can be felt from it is that we know that he has gone home to be with the Lord and will not have to suffer any longer. It has been my pleasure to know Troy for over 20 years and I feel as if I lost my own brother. He was one of the best men I have ever known. He was a man of God who was everything to his wife and kids. He was honest, loving, kind and loyal. He will be greatly missed and we will be counting the days until we will be able to be with him again seeing his smile and hearing his laughter. Troy I love you and will miss you. Gwen, I am here for you and the girls anytime.
Gwen & Family,
My sincere sympathy to you and your family during this hard time. Troy will be missed; he was truly a great guy. When Troy stayed with the us for two years so that he could finish senior year with my son Robert. These two were boys were invincible together. Road there new shadows bikes everywhere. They were so pound to ride. He was like having another son. Troy will be missed.
Troy was a great nephew, an all around good person, and a man with many talents. A Hard working family man who spent many hours helping other family members. He was funny with a dry sense of humor, and was an absolute pleasure to be around. He was well liked by everyone, and he left us much to soon. You will alway be a part of our lives.
Troy was an awesome Son-in-law. I couldn’t have asked for a better one. He seemed like a real son and was always there when I needed someone to help me. I will miss his little comments he made. He will always be in my heart. I look forward to the day when we will meet again. I am very thankful for all the love he showed my daughter and their children. He was one of the best men I have ever known. I love and miss you Troy.
A great nephew and a sad loss to our family. Troy, you will be missed!
Troy is going to be missed very much, he not only was my husband, the father of my children but also my best friend, we had a lot of good times. I will remember him forever,he left me with some very good memories and beautiful children. I thank him for taking my son Daniel as his own when Troy was just 19 years old. The best years of my life has been the last 18 years and thats because they were spent with Troy. I love you Troy and I miss you more than you will ever know.
I cant believe Troy is gone. He was a friendly, funny, honest and all around good person. He will be missed.
