Everyone's bestie, Troy

Each ride with Troy was a learning experience - about music ("those booties are attribute to a Paul Simon song" ??? from A-Shun and me. "Diamonds on the soles of her shoes!"), New Mexico ("Las Vegas? Get the stacked enchilada plate at the Hillcrest restaurant on old Route 66. Best in town!"), iPhone camera lenses, Clif Family winery - a bunch of obscure topics of which he had wide knowledge.  On Wednesday, we chatted about holiday plans and he coached me on descending Kennedy and Shannon with wet roads.  As I look through my pictures, he's always smiling and usually laughing - such a joy to be around.

I'll miss you, my friend.

    Troy was my uncle. A few things that really stand out: He seemed to always have a smile. When I picture him now, I see that warm smile.
    When I was in college, I 'thought' I was pretty smart. One Christmas at a family gathering, we were playing some game which I don't recall, now. However, I do remember that to solve some problem for this game he started doing complex algebraic equations. I was blown away at his intellect...which also made me realize I wasn't as smart as I thought, either :)
    He seemed to be genuinely interested in things I'd have to say and made people feel like they mattered.
    Just like everyone else, I am deeply saddened and shocked by this sudden and tragic loss.
    Troy was a fine man and will live in our memories--
