Troy would get an idea and then immerse himself in it ... wells, fishing, hydroponic gardening, computers, chipper machines, genealogy, religion ... whatever interested him. Troy was always in school informally.
A Navy Sea-Bee, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather, bishop of his church, successful business owner ...Troy was in charge and did everything to his best. Good, better, best, never let it rest, until the good is better and the better's best.
I know Troy isn't far away, because I can feel him around the property at times. He can see us; we just can't see him, and I like knowing that he is keeping an eye on things.
Sure do miss you, father-in-law.
