Reflections for Trooper Troy Lynn Duncan

Troy was such an amazing man, a dedicated Alaska State Trooper and I'm proud to say, a friend of mine. He was quick to volunteer his help and compassionate to the end. I can still hear his voice and see his smile when he left that fateful morning, saying he'd see us when they got back. Miss him but know he's watching over us.

Troy -- it's been 32 years today and I still think about you.

You were a rookie trooper when I was a rookie assistant d.a. in Fairbanks and we tried a lot of your DUI cases together. We never lost a single one. It was because you were always fair, professional, and polite, and juries could see it.

I know I never convinced you that it wasn't me you saw driving a Saab around a corner on two wheels one time when you were off-duty, but I swear it wasn't me. I had a Dodge Dart.

Thanks always for your service, and rest in peace, my friend. You are remembered.

Trooper Duncan,
On today, the 31st anniversary of your death I would just like to say thank you for your service and sacrifice-not just a LEO but for our Country as well when you served in the USMC as well. And to your family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy. Also please forgive me for misspelling your name here last year when I left a reflection for you.

Time may have passed but you are not forgotten. I believe as long as someone remembers you or speaks your name, you are still with us.
Thank you for your heroism.

Watching a series on snipers and after learning of Trooper Duncan's story I was interested in looking him up. it's just my small way of paying respect to the fallen hero instead of reading endless paragraph about the murderer.

Troy without hesitancy went out to search and rescue, missing people of Manley, one of whom was my good friend Dale Madajski .He also was a victim of Michael Silka. I pray you and Dale are at peace, and your memories will never be forgotten as long as I am alive. You paid the ultimate price to defend and serve, and I respect and cherish you for that. God bless your wife and children, and may god protect them like you have protected us.

The bravest often fall by the hands of cowards, but in valor there is hope.

I think often of my good friend, but these days more so for the recent tragic losses suffered by the Alaska State Troopers.

Troy will be there for them as he has been for others.

I was very sad when I heard Troy was killed by the mad man Silka
When they investigated people missing in Manley Hot Springs. Troy worked for Judicial Services back when I worked for the Trial Courts.
He would come to the Clerk's Office often so we got to know him. Great guy, always positive kind carried a big smile. I trust God has him close to him just because of who he was.

A great Trooper and friend who I miss to this day. Trooper Duncan sincerly loved serving the people of the Great State of Alaska. I will never forget the pain I felt when Fairbanks AST Dispatch called me at home regarding the loss of Trooper Duncan. Delivering his eulogy was a tremendous honor and at the same time the most difficult task I have ever faced. I will always hold his service and heroism up as an example for others to emulate. Rest in peace Dear Friend!
