I met Troy just three short months ago. Working with him nearly all day every day was something I looked forward to. He was so caring and had such a great sense of humor. We easily became great friends. He was very proud of his family and even his pup. I miss the stories and photos he shared, but I am just thankful to have had the chance to get to know him. I'll be thinking of and praying for you all.

So sorry for your loss. I knew him as"Tricia's brother" who delivered my furniture. Loved his humor! Prayers for you as you pick up pieces and go on.

My condolences to the Martin family. My parents, brother, sister and I lived down the street from the Martin family many years ago on Mdaison Strret in Morton until we moved in 1975.

Troy was a great classmate. Years ago, we all had fun at singing practices usually ending with a group heading out for teepeeing or soaping windows. Troy had a great sense of humor keeping many of us classmates laughing. Will continue to keep entire family in thoughts and prayer. Troy was a very nice person to know!
