Together they had a daughter Tory Marie, Patty had two daughter and two sons that Troy claimed as his own. Chad, Tiffany, Jamie, and Morgan. Troy was very passionate about his family, everyone who knew Troy knew the love he had for his children.
Troy spent many hours drawing, he could turn any canvas into a work of art. He truly was an amazing artist.
Troy had a way of keeping you on your toes, never a dull moment with this guy. He lived on the edge, always needing excitement, you could say he lived “Fast and Furious” he had a wonderful way of lighting up the room with his laughter, Troy was truly one of the funniest people that I knew. I will carry those memories around forever.
Troy, dear brother, y
ou're still here in my heart and mind,
still making me laugh because your stories live on.
I hold you in a thought and I can feel you.
I feel you and this gives me strength and courage.
The tears I have cried for you could flood the earth
and I know you would have wiped each one away.
For you Brother, I promise you this,
I will go on with my life and make you proud. I will always hold you in my heart.
I promise you, I will be missing you every day till the end of time,
but this is not my end, and I can't hold my head underwater....I need to breathe.
I need to love and miss you, but I also need to live because through me you will live,
you will still laugh and love,
you will still sing and dance,
you will still hug and kiss.
You will forever be in our lives,
you will forever be a brother,
I am going to miss your shining face
I think of you and wonder why?
I might cry or smile,
but at the end of the day I am one day closer to you.....
I love you little brother.
