  2. Bruce and Karen Ragon says:

    We have been Troy and Hollie’s neighbors for the past 20 years. Troy was one of the kindest, patient, helpful people we have ever met. They both always made time to chat “over the fence”. We always admired their yard and landscaping which he spent hours joyfully maintaining. He, Hollie and their families are in our thoughts and prayers during this trying time.

    I was a neighbor and driving past his home was always a blessing. The pride he took in his yard and watching his hard work reminded me of my late grandfather. I once snuck up behind him while he was working to give him Christmas candy. Although he was very appreciative, he didn’t stop working and told me to leave them on the porch! Very sorry for your loss.
