In lieu of flowers please consider making a memorial contribution in Troy's honor to the following organizations listed below.

Troy Sutton Ivey of Frisco, Texas passed away on July 4, 2018 at the age of 16. He was born on October 13, 2001 in Houston, Texas. Troy’s first 8 years on this earth were a struggle due to the personal struggles of his birth family and the turmoil and relocation while in CPS custody. Troy found his forever family in May of 2010 with Adam and Nicole. Troy was deeply loved by those fortunate enough to meet his presence. Troy was known for his smile, laughter, kindness, fun loving personality, and servitude. Between soccer, skateboarding, car shows, drawing, volunteering at the SPCA, listening to his favorite music, playing video games, going on vacations, and playing with his two dogs, it’s safe to say Troy lived his life to the absolute fullest in the time he was given. Troy was blessed to have been a part of St. Timothy Christian Academy for the spring of 2018. He thrived while in the loving environment provided by the STCA family. He had come so far in such a short time under their guidance and love. Despite our tragic loss, we have some solace that Troy was able to give the Gift of Life through Organ Donation. He registered to become an organ donor at the age of 16 and was able to give back to others one last time at the time of his death. While he left this earth too soon, we hold in full confidence that the Lord called home his most precious angel. Troy Sutton Ivey left a lasting impression on family and friends and will be remembered in our minds and missed in our hearts.

Troy is survived by his parents, Adam Ivey and Nicole Sutton of Frisco, Texas; siblings, Marcus Dukes of Laneville, Texas and Krystin Metz of Denton, Texas; grandparents, Evelyn and Bruce Campbell of Lewisville, Texas and Paul and Paula Sutton of Midlothian, Texas and Julie and Rick Seiberling of Bastrop, Texas; Great Aunt and Uncle Kim and Kim Kim Ivey of Broom, Australia; Uncles, Philip Ivey of Round Rock, Texas and Scott Magee of Arlington, Texas and Aaron Long of Keller, Texas; Aunts, Shannon Long of Keller, Texas and Melissa Ivey of Austin, Texas and Heidi Ivey of Round Rock, Texas and Joy Seiberling of Killeen, Texas; cousins, Jamie Long of Keller, Texas and Matthew Hauch of Round Rock, Texas and Jemma Ivey of Round Rock, Texas; and numerous other loving family and friends.

I would like to thank each of you for sharing your favorite memories you had with troy. The words that are expressed over and over show how much he was loved by many. He touched many of you in various ways that we did not even fathom. Troy had his struggles, but we let him experience a normal teenage life as much as we could. While it was tough at times on us, he was a loving, kind and compassionate kid. My relationship was hard at times with troy due to the deep hurt and suffering he had endured from his birth father. We did many things to help him heal from those deep scars. There will always be a void in my heart that no one or anything can replace. Troy will always be that sweet child of ours and the son whom we are proud of. I want my beautiful, lovely and compassionate wife know that we did everything on this earth to help troy. She is a great mother and loved troy more than anything in this world.

To my son Troy: I want you to know buddy that no matter the turmoil or tough days you endured we loved you with all our heart. Your mom and I will miss you very much and we will cherish all the wonderful times we had with you. All the teasing and joking, we did will be forever carved into our minds. We are happy the lord as has taken you home to where you can start the next chapter of your life. You enjoy this new journey and keep being you because your mom and I can't wait to see you soon. In dedication to you buddy:

The loss that is endured from suicide has a long, scaring and painful effect on many, for the rest of their lives. The article sheds light on the impulsive side of suicide. Maybe, just maybe, someone reads it who might have an impulse decision, but thinks twice before acting.
God bless each of you and thank you for the wonderful posts and memorable pictures.
Troy's Father

I will remember Troy for being a lovable and crazy kid. While he was a student at Sundance Canyon Academy, we made a trip to Zions Canyon. He swam in frigid waters, climbed 1500 ft up Angels Landing, and always had a kool-aid smile on his face. He was brave, energetic, stubborn, and goofy. Just like a kid should be! I will miss you, Troy. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

We will remember Troy as a playful, sensitive young man. He was much loved by his parents and extended family, from whom he enjoyed a lifetime of dedication, love, and support. He would beat me at every computer game we played. In return, I would kindly prod him to expand his culinary horizons beyond macaroni and cheese. Kimm would help him accessorise his "brave" sense of dress with some Australian additions. We will miss you very much. Grand-Uncle & Aunt Kimbo & Kimm.

I'd seen Troy many times volunteering at the SPCA of Texas where I work, but only recently had a real conversation with him. He had just finished up volunteering with Critter Camp for the week and told me all about how much he wanted to do it again next month. It made me glad to see so much joy and pride in the work that he did, from such a young person. I am heartsick that I won't get to see him next week during Critter Camp, but his bright smile will be in my thoughts. Thank you, Troy, for what you gave to our shelter.
