Troy was born in Port Alberni on April 16, 1966. He attended Gill, A.W. Neill and ADSS from where he graduated. Troy loved sports and in his youth played soccer for the A.V. Soccer League as well as school Track and Field, where he earned many awards. Troy moved to Prince George in 1986 and was employed by the Canfor Pulp Mill where he was the goaltender for the Canfor Industrial hockey team. Troy also loved cars, especially hotrods and muscle cars. He could be found glued to the TV during the Barrett Jackson Auction dreaming of cars he would like to own. He was loved and respected by his work mates, and many visited him in his final days.
Cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will be held in Prince George at a later date. Interment will take place at Greenwood Cemetery.
His family and those who knew him will forever love and miss him.
Troy loved animals and those who wish to do so may make a donation in his memory to the local S.P.C.A.
