Troy retired from the state of Arkansas where he worked in Corrections for over 20 years. He made the decision to retire so he would be available to care for his Dad, which he did, faithfully. Troy loved the out-of-doors, guns, knives, history, weather and prophecy. Troy also loved to receive scam or telemarketer calls just so he could harass them about calling. He was a member of Indian Springs Baptist Church where he served on the security team.
