OBITUARY

Troy Wayne Laviolette

August 14, 1996September 11, 2019

Troy Wayne Laviolette was born on August 14, 1996. He was a tiny premature baby weighing only 3 pounds and 3 ounces. He didn't give up and after 6 weeks in the hospital, he was able to come home.

At two months old, he had open heart surgery to correct a valve defect. After his surgery, he started to thrive - and at two years old he was at the 95% percentile for toddlers his age.

In 2011, he started Kindergarten at Beaver Acres School. His teacher said in various academic progress report that "Troy is a caring and curious child who enjoys working and playing with others - He is a good and supportive friend."

Troy started fourth grade at Pilgrim Lutheran School. Troy LOVED Pilgrim. He loved every one of his teacher and all of his friends. He loved to sing in the choir - and Pilgrim was Troy's second home.

Troy graduated 8th grade from Pilgrim in 2011 and graduated from Tigard High School in 2015.

Troy tragically took his own life on September 11, 2019. He was 23 years old.

Troy left an enormous impact on his friends and family with his huge and caring heart, his hugs and his acceptance of who you are as a person.

His life story may be short, but his impact on his family and friends was enormous and will always be a part of us.

Troy is survived by his mother, Tiffany Wyss Laviolette, brother, Trevor Laviolette, father and step-mother, Perry and Lora Laviolette, step-brother Joseph McLaughlin, grandparents, Harvey & Jeanette Wyss and Shirley Laviolette, and numerous cousins, aunts, uncles and friends. Troy was preceded in death by his grandfather, Jean Laviolette.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Troy's honor to any suicide prevention organization.

I remember the first time that I met Troy, I thought he was such a polite and friendly guy. I was excited that my son had another new friend that would be a good influence on him.

All the guys from the Tigard High School Robotics Team migrated from house to house to play Dungeons & Dragons. Attached is a photo of one of those times. I was so pleased that they were playing a game that did not involve a computer screen.

Those guys formed a strong friendship that I am thankful for. I will miss Troy terribly, but I will always remember him. Rest in Peace with our Heavenly Father....

Laviolette, as we called him, was always the most genuine, kind, and considerate person in the large group of robotics teams we had in high school. He was always interested in others passions, and always trying to make sure everyone was comfortable and having a good time. The older I get, the more I respect how much he cared for everyone around him on a daily basis. The world needs more people like Laviolette.
