  5. I am so sorry to hear of Troy’s death. I worked with him Athena; he was such as asset to the school community. He was helpful, professional, competent: he was always positive and had a genuine and realistic sense of humor. He shall be missed.

  6. I was shocked and saddened by seeing this obituary in the paper this morning. (11/25/12)

    As a shop teacher at Athena Middle School, Troy and I were very good friends and had a great deal of respect for one another. We had a mutual understanding that if either one of us needed anything, or there was anything we could do for one another as a result of our positions in the building, we did it gladly and it cemented our long association extending back to when I was on staff in the high school below. We would always share a joke and made it a point to say hello to one another virtually every day. I looked forward to this because of Troy’s unassuming attitude and his being such a positive and kind person. He was hard working and all the staff really liked him for his ‘can do’ way of handling their many requests.

    Troy would make it a point to stop over with his friends to visit us at our Watkins Glen camp site and have a beer or two with us during the NASCAR weekend and we would always reminisce and chuckle about the good and bad people at Athena.

    I know I’m going to miss Troy and I am sorry for your great loss.
