He was the fifth of seven children born to Jack and Janet. Troyce’s adventures in poultry, livestock, work, and play took him around the country and world, but he always considered himself a lifetime resident of his hometown Crete, Nebraska. He graduated in 1987 from Crete Jr/Sr High School, and attended the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and Doane College. Troyce or Troy as he was often called, was a modern day horse trader. Whether you were looking for the best tile or tool, partridge Cochin bantam rooster, or who had the best Dorset wether lambs, he was the guy who could help you find what you wanted at a good price. The world held no strangers for Troy, there were only deals he had not yet made or new friends he was always happy to help…it seemed like he knew everyone.
