No words can take away the pain you are feeling right now. Nobody knows why these things happen but they do. But I know this……nothing can take away all the special memories you two shared. If there is anything I can do for you I’m just a phone call away.

Aunt Anna, Uncle George, Mary & Family: Words cannot express what you are going through right now…Life just isn’t fair sometimes, and this is one of those time…we ask the question “WHY” and there are no answers…Troy’s life was cut way to short, he had so much love and life yet to give and live…God must of had bigger plans for him, remember he is free from pain and “FLYING HIGH WITH THE ANGELS”
Just remember “When someone you LOVE becomes a memory , that memory becomes a TREASURE!

Anna and George,
I just got the call last night from mom telling me about Troy’s passing. I can’t believe that when I saw him last year at their anniversary it would be the last time I saw him alive. Far too young and far too quickly. We’re praying for you in this time of sadness.
Brad, Linda, Becky and Sarah MacLeod
Mary, I am sure there are no words of comfort that are enough for you at this time. Please know, though, that you are in our thoughts and we are praying for you to find the strength to get through this pain and sadness. I am so glad you and Troy made such happy memories; hold them close.
Mary, Anna, George and family, I can’t imagine the pain and emptiness you are feeling right now. Mary, you know you and Troy were the perfect couple. Your time together was cut way too short, but I know you have had alot of great times together and have many memories to cherish. When you look at the photos of him just remember what you told me the other day, he is looking right at you. That he is, he is your guardian angel and will always be with you in your heart and be watching over you and his family. R.I.P. Troy, you will be missed
cynthia and allan wilson
dear mary and anna and george i am so sorry to hear of troys passing,no one can take away your pain but you are in our thoughts and prayer.i will be calling you mary so we can spend some time together soon,((( HUGS ))) TO YOU ALL
Angie Hatt and Family
We are sorry to hear about troy. We will keep you in our thoughts and prayers. Take care of yourself
Saying goodbye to an old friend is always hard but I think this one is the hardest one yet. I will always remember his laugh, his good nature and his happy go lucky attitude. I will miss his “hello old lady” as he is the only one I ever allowed to call me that. You two were made for one another and it makes me very sad that it has come to an abrupt end. We shared some good times on our trips and I will always remember them fondly. If you ever need anything, you know I am just a phone call away. Luv you and take care.
Kathy Rafuse & Daniel Robichaud
Mary,there are no words that Daniel and I , could offer that would help ease the immediate loss and suffering you are feeling…..but I think you might share the belief that there is a place after dealth,whether it is with god ,another type of creator ,or maybe it’s within our own memmories… I believe that Troy was spared a lengthy suffering with such a horrible disease because of his readiness to help others…I am sure you will forever have a watchful angel beside you ,take comfort in that ……the Christian Bible in the book of Matthew 5:4 says..Blessed are those who mourn,for they will be comforted. There is no word for good-bye in Mi’kmaq.There is a term that is informally translated (Ne’multes.) which means ” Be seeing you again…………….take comfort in that ,Daniel and I will be away for the next week but Mary our hearts will be with you ..don’t hold in your tears because the spirit needs to hear and see our tears ,because this will create a light helping Troy find his way on his next journey..take care Mary when the nights are long call I’m here xoxo K & D

It is with a heavy heart that we send our deepest sympathy, It was real hard to hear of such a great friend passing. I looked up to Troy so very much, I remember when I was a new member and a new operator, Troy always made time to teach me what ever, he could pass on, I would not be an operator right now if it was not for Troy taking the time to teach me what he knew. I am going to miss our little talks that we had at the landfill, Rest in piece my friend. Art Malone

Darren Horton & Debbie Hamilton
Anna, George, Mary & Family, Although I had lost touch with Troy, I will always have a lot of fond memories of him; from the fire department, and way back when the first WWF Wrestle mania came on and 20 or so of us would crowd in the basement and watch. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
I would like to send my sympathies at this difficult time. God has a new Angel. Take care and cherish your memories.
Alan & Margaret Hatt
Love to Mary , Anna , George, Allan and of coarse Phred…
The taking of someone so young and in the begining of his life is
hard to understand , but God must have plans for him. Troy rests in peace and free from pain . We hope he finds his way to see his Grandmother and grandfathers previously passed and to enjoy the better place to which he has been taken.
The firefighters have lost a good man today!
Hugs and Kisses

Our deepest sympathy to Mary, George, Anna, Allan, Jackie and all of the extended family.

Think happy thoughts about Troy and keep them close to your heart, you will need them in the coming days.

Fred Wade- Fireworks FX
Troy we will miss you on July 1st at the Canada Day fireworks display, you were always such a big help. And I couldn’t help but notice that you kicked up a real storm when you left us the other night. I think the thunder and lighting was your way of protesting leaving us so soon.

Greg and Shirleen Black
To Mary and all of Troy’s family
We were so saddened to hear about your loss. I will miss Troy’s bi-weekly visit to our neighborhood. Troy struck me as a very genuine man who I looked forward to seeing for our Tuesday morning chats. It was obvious how much he loved his family in how he spoke of you all. Mary, I know that your trips to Cuba together were a special a highlight to him.
To know that even though we didn’t know each other really well, he would think of us and bring back a memento from your Cuba trips was touching. It just goes to show what a big-hearted guy Troy was. It was good to have know him. Again, he will be sadly missed. May God bless you and watch over you.
Greg and Shirleen Black
Terrena & Steven Parnell
Mary, George, Anna, Allan & families:
I know this is a very difficult time for all of you as Troy was taken way too soon. He was the kind of man who would do anything for anyone. He was truly one of a kind. They say “Only the good die young”. No truer words could have been spoken at this time. We are here anytime you need us.

Marilyn & Fred Clarke
So sorry to hear of Troy’s passing. He was in our home several years ago helping install our furnace. We remember this big man who showed such patience, and his warm smile. Then he became our garbage man so it was nice seeing him drive up every 2 weeks. We only knew him briefly but he left a positive impression.
Take care of yourself and know that time does help the healing.
Darlene and Wayne Trimm
Mary, George, Anna and family, May the good memories live in your hearts forever. He was taken too soon. We will remember our Cuba adventures, especially Troy helping Mary on the catermaran. Take care of each other.
To all of Troy’s Family,
My heart breaks with you all at this difficult time. Troy was the sweetest guy ever who always had my back. And also was always a pain in my butt. He never missed a time that he wouldn’t pick on me. I will surely miss that and him. And that smile of his would always make me smile even when I didn’t feel like it at all ! May you all know that that beautiful smile is still smiling down on you all .
May you rest in peace Buddy. I will truely miss you.
With my deepest of sympathy,
bruce clattenburg and family

Troy, i only knew you for few years, but you made my daughter real happy. When the two of you met, it was a match made in heaven. I will truly miss you, even though we didnt get to know each other better.
Samantha, Jonathan and Chantel Frail
When Troy and Mary started to become friends I knew that it would change our lifes as it did Marys, he was a great man with lots of love for anyone that he met. I’ll never forget the memory’s that we all had together. Miss you and we all love you! May you rest in peace Troy….
Mary, George, Anna and Family,
I served in the Liverpool Fire Department with Troy for nearly 15 years. He will be missed by all, but never forgotten. I knew Troy was sick, but I only found out officially what he had, and how sick he was only a few hours before he passed away. About an hour after he passed, we were loading the trucks to respond to a House Fire in Western Head when another fire fighter told me the grim news. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you during this difficult time.
I still can’t wrap my head around everthing thats happened in the past week… I’ll always remember the good times we all shared. Troy, you truely made Mary one happy camper. It’s a shame your time was cut so short R.I.P we’ll never forget you.
George & Louie
We”ll miss the old times in the back yard, Troy cooking the stakes on the open fire and beer that we drank (Troys), and all the good times we had. R.I.P brother (Troy) and Uncle Troy from Louie.
Laura & Duane
We crashed at your place and never left for a year and a half. We’re going to miss you and Duanes going to miss working with you. R.I.P Troy, you may have only been my brother in law for a year, but we considered you part of the family way before.
R.I.P troy.mary will be ok she has a big family looking out after her.your mom and dad will be ok too.reds going to miss you buddy.you keepted my promise thank you.now its time to fly with the angels where he needs you ill see you when its my turn.fly high buddy from red.
