Troy Lamar Anglin

4 December, 193725 March, 2020

Troy, 82, passed away on Wednesday, March 25, 2020 at his home in Charlotte after an extended illness. He was in the company of his loving family.

Troy was born on December 4, 1937 in Rockingham, NC, the youngest of the late Welton Causby (WC) Anglin and Sadie Bankston Anglin’s five children.

From an early age, Troy was an avid baseball player, and later, an amateur boxer. He graduated from Rock Hill High School in Rock Hill, SC, where he was Class President, and joined the US Air Force in 1956. During his enlistment, he was a Weather Observer and was stationed in Texas, Illinois, and the Philippines. After his discharge in 1960, he moved to Charlotte and studied Business and Accounting at Kings College and Central Piedmont Community College. He worked as a Credit Manager for many years, retiring from Radiator Specialty in 2000.

In the fall of 1969, he met the love of his life, Polly. They married on June 20, 1970, and Troy spent the next 50 years raising a family, serving his church as an elder, deacon, Sunday School Superintendent, and Board Member, traveling, and in later years, being a doting grandfather.

Troy loved history, sports, and reading. He was a longtime blood donor to the Red Cross, and gave multiple gallons over his lifetime. He had a beautiful tenor singing voice and for many years, led the songs at his church’s Assembly. He loved to laugh, and his hearty laughter was contagious. He was often the last to leave social occasions, because he never met a stranger.

In addition to his parents, Troy is preceded in death by his sisters, Juanita Anglin and Christine Ward, and brother, Bob Anglin. He is survived by his wife, Polly; son, Travis Anglin (Sheree) of Charlotte; daughter, Beth Garland (Rickey) of Hampstead, NC; grandchildren, Alex Chaney and Emma, Sadie, and Cooper Garland; brother, Gene Anglin of Rock Hill, SC and many beloved nieces and nephews.

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, the family will hold a private graveside service, with Military Honors, officiated by Troy’s nephew, Rev. Steve Anglin. A Celebration of Life service will be held this summer at SouthPark Christian Church (date to be determined).

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to one of Troy’s favorite charities, Purple Heart Homes.

The Anglin's have been part of our family since I was born. We attended the same church, events and vacations. I remember Troy's amazing voice. I remember him teaching us in Bible study and giving us homework and looking forward to their Christmas party every year. Troy was brilliant and wise, and we always had great conversation. He could always make me laugh. Troy and my Dad were best buddies and always went to Captain Ds. I can visualize Troy meeting Dad in Heaven... Dad says, " What took you so long?" and Troy replies, " Hey Buddy, I've missed you! Now let's go get some fish!" I owe a huge part of who I am to Troy, this wonderful Christian man, my 2nd Dad, and I will truly miss him.

Polly, Beth and Travis,
I was heartbroken when I heard the news of Troy passing. Troy was an amazing man and anyone that knew him knew just how truly special his heart was. When I think of Troy I think of how he could tell a great story and really make you laugh. He was one of the kindest and thoughtful people I’ve ever met. He had such wisdom to share. Troy has been a part of my family’s life for over 5O yrs and there are so many wonderful memories I have of Troy with both of our families, First Christian Church, South Park Christian Church, church events such as Christ Cove and beach trips. I am thinking of you all and wishing you peace, comfort and courage to face the days ahead. Continue to hold those loving memories in your heart. I promise those cherished memories will pull you through these inevitably difficult days. Sending you Prayers and hugs.

Our daughters were playmates and friends through school and Freshman year of college! So we were the carpool and the spectators as Beth and Brittany enjoyed many school and community activities! They were good neighbors! Troy was a good family man and always had a good joke to share! He wasn’t afraid to share God’s love openly! He will be missed! Praying for Polly, Beth, Travis and the family! 🙏❤️
