Throughout his life, Troy owned and operated Troy's Upholstery and one of his most favorite things to do was work, as he was still working at 86 years old...because "work is what makes it all possible." In his free time, he enjoyed watching television, keeping up with the stock market, and doing things for others. Troy really enjoyed going to Carl's Jr every morning to drink coffee with his buddies. He also loved going to The Senior Citizens Center for lunch every day with his friends. Troy was a dedicated member of the High Lifters Club since high school. Most of all he enjoyed spending time with his family, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. He will be remembered as a loving husband, father, and Papaw.
