I spoke with Troy briefly the night he was killed. Near the end of my shift I heard DPS put out the radio broadcast announcing Troy was dead. I was so sad. I grew up near Big Spring and I met Troy when he worked for the local police department. Troy and a few other BSPD officers inspired me to become a police officer. I have served for 28 years and I have people like him to thank for my career. God bless you Troy and all of the women and men who gave the ultimate sacrifice.
