I am sorry that I didn't learn of Troy's passing until a few days ago. I grew up in Canton with Troy and others as my boyhood friends, and I will say that Troy was one of the most decent, trusting and loyal friends I have ever had. As it goes, we move away and lose contact with friends as he, but the memories live on. Bless his family.
