Troy went to his heavenly home on March 13, 2020. Troy was a pure hearted servant of God and a faithful member of the First Baptist Church of Marion. He was employed by ConAgra for over 10 years in the utility and maintenance departments. You could find Troy at every church event, from funerals of church members, friends and family to VBS and regular church activities. Troy was also known for passing out memorial folders at funerals and working the front door. Troy would let you know when your inspection sticker and license plates were due and many will miss him for that. Troy will be dearly missed and often remembered.
