Kay, we are so sorry for your loss. Our prayers are extended to you, Troy Jr. and Patricia.
Kay, Troy Jr, and Tricia, I have known yall since childhood. I will never forget while I was in 10th grade babysitting the kids and they had the chickenpox, which I ended up with and missed all my Christmas parties at school. It was my pleasure to have known Troy Sr. He was a Godly man, husband, daddy, grandfather to many grands and great grands. Kay, I remember the days that Billy drove us to work many times due to snow, sleet and ice. It has been great living in the same small town as yall. Our little community has always been such a friendly place where we all knew one another. Love you all, Sherry and Billy Ward

I loved to talk with Big Troy about hunting and trapping. He always had some piece of wisdom mixed in the conversation with his great dry sense of humor. We will miss him but what a day that will be when we are with Jesus and him in glory. We love you all very much and you are in our prayers!Eddie, Beth, Logan, and Donnely Lewis
Our condolences and prayers for the Collins Family.
Hugging ALL of you in my prayers as you walk this journey in life. It's never easy to say goodbye on this side of heaven, where the presence of our loved one will be greatly missed. Uncle Troy was such a sweet gentle soul, he may have been a man of few words but his heart spoke volumes. I am blessed that I was able to see him on his birthday while I was in town, even then when the moment was about him, he asked me how my husband Cal was doing. He left a legacy to be proud of and he loved each and every one of you!
Kay, so sorry for your loss. Love and prayers. 🙏❤️
My heart hurts for Aunt Kay, Troy Jr. & Patricia. Uncle Troy is having that grand dinner in Heaven with Mom sitting beside him. Aunt Kay you were the perfect wife you made his life on earth a glorious and joyful journey. Troy Jr. & Patricia y'all were blessed beyond words to have such a wonderful man to call Dad. I pray God gives y'all comfort in this time of loss. Cherish all the memories that will be with you forever. I love y'all, Cathy
