In Texas there is a kind of good ol' boy ranking that goes in order of discernment of the situation. Local police, sheriff's department, then DPS. Troy had an energy and kindness that I have yet to experience elsewhere. A true Texas Trooper! I'm biased because I'm from Texas, from Big Spring, but challenge anyone on the merits of Troy and his professionalism and kindness to everyone he came into contact with. You are still missed in this world Troy!
