Troy Lamar Anglin

December 4, 1937March 25, 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.

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! 🙏❤️
