He will be forever remembered for his determined outlook on life, and his willingness to forge a path uniquely his own; a path without refute or deviation for an ultimate goal, a goal that, to him, was all there ever was. In life, Troy pursued many passions and adventures but settled for invention. Taking the quote by Albert Eisenstein as a personal motto, “Imagination is more important than knowledge” Troy used his imagination to create wonders that stunned the scientific community and wowed viewers across the world for many years, having appeared on dozens of television shows and talk shows. Troy was a man of tenacity and will, a master storyteller and historian. His hobbies were many as was his desire to learn about the world. He never stopped moving forward, no matter the odds against him. Troy was without give in his quest to achieve his dreams. “-But as long as a man has the strength to dream, He can redeem his soul and fly-“. Elvis Presley.
