Troy was a light that shined brightly on anyone he met. He had a unique ability to be creative and to find the gifts in others to collectively work together to go to heights previously unknown. He was an incredible and magnetic leader. Troy did not see what was; he saw what could be and went after it with all his heart. He was a true servant.
