Troy Adam Landis
April 28, 1970 – November 18, 2019
Troy Adam Landis, 49, passed away peacefully at the Landis Estate on November 18, 2019 with Cinde, holding his hand and family and friends by his side. He is survived by his wife Cinde, Brother and Sister In laws, Tommy, Joanne, Kathy, Mike and Pat, his Mother Barbara, and Sisters, Jennifer, Laura, Sherri and Susie, and 23 Nieces and Nephews, and 9 Great Nieces and Nephews. Troy proudly served his Country in the Army E2/PV2 for 8 years, and in our house, without fail, we stood, out of respect, for the National Anthem anytime time it was playing on TV. He got misty every time Taps played, he always remembered the time he was at Arlington National Cemetery and a horse drawn carriage arrived with a soldier and the family, that picture never left him, a Brother that served, to make America safe. Troy was a true Patriot. Troy loved his work, he was as a Commercial Superintendent for Furgeson Construction in Bellevue and Seattle and had so many Projects in his 30 years in Construction. Many of his Projects are seen today in the Seattle Skyline. He was so driven to build great loyal teams and amazing commercial buildings, he had to always make sure work was right, he pushed, no matter what. Then there was the boat, Troy loved our boat, "The Declaration" and our tender, the "2nd Amendment", this gave him the most peace of mind. Every weekend in the Spring and Summer we went to the boat. Only time we didn't use it was during football season! Go Eagles! We had 4 boats in our time together, all spent, having the time of our life, traveling the Puget Sound and the San Juan Islands and crabbing whenever we could. The happiest I ever have seen Troy, was driving the boat or just hanging out on the boat with friends. Every year we got a Flag for the boat, flown on the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor, and the current Flag was flown on his Birthday, it will be sent with him to rest. A private reception will be on the boat to honor Troy early next year. Can not fail to mention Troys love for Big Dogs, ironically that is how we met, he had heard there was a Newfoundland puppy at the local flower shop, so he would stop in to see my Elvis boy. We have 2 Saint Bernard's, Jefferson and Franklin, that miss him, and are still looking for him, laying by his truck, waiting in front of his chair, if I say his name they jump up, look at the door and their tails are wagging and they are waiting for him to walk through the door. I told them Daddy's at the boat! We have had 4 other Saints in our time together, Lizzie, a rescue that hooked us on Saints, Maximus, Butkis and Hancock, all resting on our property and they loved him, and he spoiled them so much! And how about those Philly Sports teams, he was proud to be a "4 for 4", which meant he rooted for all 4 Philadelphia Sports teams, The Eagles, Phillies, Flyers and Sixers, but we can't leave out Penn State! His best trip to Philly was for his 40th Birthday, we went to an Eagles game, then across the street to Phillies Championship game, then later in the week, we hit up a Flyers game and a Sixers game, what a great memory! So much fun together at all the games we went to over the years! Where did the time go, 22 years 8 months and 17 days, seems like yesterday we were crazy in love and having the time of our life? When we met, what I remember most is, you gave me the freedom to be myself, be who I wanted to be, be who I am, such a breath of fresh air, wise beyond your years! Troy left us too soon, he told me "I still have things to do" and he started to talk about his Bucket List. I will follow that list in the next few years, with Troy forever in my heart. So many things to say about Troy, what a colorful personality, he was so funny, OMG, did we laugh together, he was so good at remembering funny lines from Movies and those that knew him well, remember all the funny things he said! The Philly in Troy was unforgettable! Rest easy Troy, knowing you lived your best life, a life many dream of, a life beyond expectations, full of fun and love, and rewarding work and the boat! Despite hardships in your life, and the demons that haunted you, you became the better man, generous, loyal, honest and caring. I knew the first time we talked, we had a deep connection in our souls, that will stay with us forever. I am proud to be your wife, and the memories of our wedding make my heart full, if only married for 28 hours, we were already married in our hearts a long time ago. I love you Troy, Cinde In lieu of Flowers, donations can be made, in Troys honor to: The American Legion, Albert c Kean Post 149, 4922 Kitsap Way Bremerton WA 98312, Kitsap Humane Society, Gentle Giants INC., www.gentlegiantsinc.org.

Celebration of Life
Troy Adam Landis

I love my brother so much! And will miss him tremendously. My very first memory of him was reaching his hand out for me when I fell into a pool at the age of 3. He saved my life. Many years went by with a trip back in 2000 with the whole gang...oh the laughs and memories. More quiet years went by as life happens and we reconnected this past summer. Me being in the dental field Troy was so excited to share with me his new set of crowns. And on the day of his delivery of the set he graciously invited me and my boyfriend Pat out to Seattle to share in his and Cindi’s annual boat trip to the San Juan islands. It is a trip I will never ever forget and hold so dear to my heart. I was able to reconnect once again and saw up close his passion for driving his boat and relaxing on it. And oh my can he navigate his boat!! We had such a wonderful time with Troy and Cindi!! They gave so generously to us and made sure we had a memorable time with them. I love them both with all of my heart. Rest In Peace Troy❣️ You will forever be in my heart.

I have so much to say yet can't find the words to express my sorrow. So many memories I hold dear to my heart that I have with Cinde and Troy. I always looked forward to my work trips to Seattle because I knew when work was done there would be fun to be had with you two. How lucky was I to go on the very first boat trip, we went to Port Townsend, saw a nuclear sub and got caught in a major scary storm and all survived! Troy always tolerated so much girl time with me and Cinde and was such a good sport. My name is written on a beam in the WaMu tower thanks to Troy and I have shared that story proudly with my kids, how I was friends with the "big guy" that took me on a private tour while the building was under construction. All these thoughts put a smile on my face and I will keep them in my heart forever. Love you Cinner and know I am holding you close. Dawnia

I first met Troy as a customer at the flower shop. I remember him mostly for his love of the Eagles, and how excited he was when he returned from watching them practice at Lehigh University. I also remember his love of Saints. I remember that’s what drew Cinde to him first. I saw a special friendship start in those next few weeks. Who would have thought that friendship was going to last over 22 years. Yes,how time flies, it was all like it where yesterday.
Thanks to social Media I was able to catch up with Cinde and Troy. I got to see a little of the joy and adventure they both enjoyed. I will alway remember him as this young handsome man that was sent into Cinde’s life just at the right time. Somethings are meant to be and their love was one!
I am sadden to hear he has left us, but I know his memory will live in all the lives he has touched forever!
With love and heartfelt sympathy,

That was beautiful Cinde.
I remember meeting Troy when he was kind enough to give us a tour of the then incomplete WaMu Center
I remember how thoroughly impressed, no amazed, I was of his job - in charge of the entire exterior, massive curtain-wall of the building that included managing its end to end ordering, delivery and installation on schedule and on budget in perfect time with the rest of the building construction. We were doing project management in IT at the time and it was obvious how the work Troy did in skyscraper construction was the real deal. :-)
Bless you Cinde and Troy’s whole family. Also, very happy that he got to enjoy his Super Bowl victory a couple of years ago - even though it was at the expense of my Patriots. I really didn’t mind though because I know that Philly is a great sports town and Troy was a perfect example of that and I’m sure he was ecstatic! :-)
Rest In Peace Troy

Cinde your words are beautiful and perfect. They broke the mold when Troy entered this world. He was 1 of a kind for sure! So many fun memories from date night to time out on the boat. Giving my kids gallon bags full of candy just because. One thing I know for sure was his unconditional love for Cinde, they worked hard and built a beautiful adventurous life together. rest easy Troy ♥️
