He raised mostly quarter horses. He cared for them and shared his hobby with his children. All together, they showed their horses in 4-H and other open shows. Troy also enjoyed cooking. He loved grilling, smoking pork shoulder and other meats and making other culinary creations, totally unique as he was. Always proud of his children, he loved watching and supporting them when they were in school and continued a loving relationship with each one as they became adults.
