He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Albert and Hilkka Schultz and Gene and Billie Bowes.

A memorial service in remembrance of Troy will be held on Saturday, Nov. 23 at 3 p.m. at the Myrhum— Patten Funeral Home, 1315 W. Washington St., West Bend, with the Rev. Jeremy Deaner of Fifth Avenue United Methodist Church, West Bend, officiating. Visitation will be at the funeral home on Saturday from 1 p.m. until the time of service.
