He attended Dixie High School, where his competitiveness came out in the sports he played and loved, such as tennis and golf. Growing up, Troy was an Eagle Scout, earned 11 palms and his silver beaver. At 19, he went on a mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, where he served honorably in Mexico and Texas.
Upon return he then attended Dixie College where he met the love of his life, Gretchen. Troy and Gretchen dated, fell in love and were sealed for time and all eternity. They had six wonderful children and nine beautiful grandchildren whom he loved, supported and adored.
