It still seems impossible that he is really gone, someone I have known all my life. I can still see him hanging out the window of the car in the rain working the windshield wipers with a rope yelling back in the window "Rita Faye, we better not tell my Mom about this". One of many happy memories with Troy. He touched so many people with his kind heart and gentle soul, this world is a better place because of him. My heart is with you all.

I am very saddened to hear Troy passed. He was an inspirational leader, a driven and balanced man with a kind heart. I still remember the look of shock on my two boys face when he sent a fedex box the size of a watermelon full of candy for my boys on Halloween. He always got a kick out of their antics and lit up sharing hunting adventures. It was contagious. He had a gift for finding great words of encouragement thru our time working together. I know he made an impact on my life and I feel lucky to have known him. May your family find peace in this difficult time. Sincerely David Okimoto

Very shocked and sorry to hear about Troy's passing. Troy brought everything he had to every position he held at Forest. You never had any question about his sincerity or his tenacity. Rest in peace Troy and my condolences to his family. He was a good man and true to his ND roots.
