May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

I am so, so sorry! I know he and his mom are rejoicing in Heaven.❤ My prayer is for peace and comfort for the family.

My earliest memories of Troy was me hanging out with him and Aunt Pricilla in an upstairs garage apartment at Mamaw Jackson’s in Port Houston. I was probably around 6 or 7 because I remember him being around 1 at the time. I loved hanging around with them in that apartment. He was such a cute little baby and I loved pushing him around in his stroller and playing with him. And as he grew up I didn’t get to spend very much time with him because of Uncle Lynn being in the military, but our...

I have so many wonderful memories oh him... He'll be truly missed.

Jane and I are so incredibly sorry to hear of Troy's passing.

"Only a moment you stayed, but what an imprint your footprints have left in our hearts”

My thoughts are exactly as Michelle has written. We have many childhood memories we hold dear to our hearts. The anticipation and joy of knowing we would be spending time with "The Jackson-5" compared with nothing else. My thoughts and prayers are with Troy's wife and children, and Lynn, Amy and Randy.


He was a co-worker and friend to all and will be missed by all. The news of his passing was shocking and saddening to all even though he was fighting a uphill battle. Troy will be missed by all and hearts and prayers go out to his family through this journey and may the Lord bless and keep all now and forever.

My heart breaks of news about your illness and death. My thoughts and prayers are with Amy, Randy, Lynn, your children and the rest of the family. I will always cherish the memories of growing up with the Jackson family. The young hearted giggling and playfulness are instilled in my thoughts forever. I love you and will miss you. But my heart is also filled with joy that you are reunited with your mom.
