Deb and Jade, my thoughts are with you…
My sincerest condolences to your family Deb. Troy was much too young to die. I’m so sorry to hear it– I hope you can get thru the holidays okay– it’s not a good time – no time is good, but especially Thanksgiving and Xmas.
Sue Pufferberger told me — she was hoping to attend the Services — I had to work — I work 3rd shift. I Wish I could have made it.
Love, and Prayers, Midge My thoughts are with you all.
Wishing you peace and comfort during this time of bereavement. Troy was a great man and he touched many lives in a special way. I owe him a lot for everything he did for me professionally at Forest. He was genuine, caring, and honest with people and that made him very special in my eyes. I know he is in heaven with our Heavenly Father and the rest of his angels. I know he seems to be gone to soon, but know that his impact here was incredible and I’m blessed to have been around him. As you move forward in the days and months ahead always keep the thoughts of all the great moments in your mind and he will forever live within your hearts.
Peace and Mercy
My sincerest condolences to the Sheldon Family. I worked with Troy during my time at Forest and he was truly a strong and dedicated leader. Rest in Peace.
I am saddened to hear about Troy’s passing. He was a good man. I admired his positive outlook and leadership presence. Having lived in Cincinnati before moving to New York it was nice to connect with Troy on the happenings around the area. Prayers to the family. Troy will be missed.
Very shocked and sorry to hear about Troy’s passing. Troy brought everything he had to every position he held at Forest. You never had any question about his sincerity or his tenacity. Rest in peace Troy and my condolences to his family. He was a good man and true to his ND roots.
My sincerest condolences to Troy’s family. I had the pleasure of working with Troy at Forest Laboratories and was always impressed with his strong work ethic and leadership skills. He was a wonderful, hard working individual with a great sense of humor. Rest in eternal peace Troy.
Troy had one of the most magnetic personalities I’ve ever seen. Honest, trustworthy, always willing to help, and a great guy to be around. I’m going to miss my friend.
I have wonderful memories of Troy. We served together in the ND National Guard, where we attended Officer Candidate School together. He was a terrific soldier and a great person. My deepest condolences.

My heart is heavy with sorrow to learn of Troy’s passing.
He was such a positive influence to all who had the pleasure to know him. Such a loss for his family and friends.
Life is short. Heaven is forever.
I am so sorry to hear of Troys passing. I worked with Troy at Forest for 8 great years, starting in 2004. He was always inclusive of individuals and worked very hard to be the best leader for his team. Prayers for Troys family and friends. He will be missed. Troy always had a smile on his face. May he Rest In Peace! Lindsay Bahr
May God bless Deb and Jade during this difficult time. It was an honor to know Troy as it is an honor to know his family. The Sheldons represent so very much what is right and good and true in this world. We are praying our family Rosary for you all every evening. This is a tough blow so please know that our prayers and thoughts will be with you in the many months ahead.
Just wanted to pass a short note of condolence on the loss of Troy. I worked with Troy for 15 years at Forest. He was a great leader and a better man. He pushed me to be the same every day we worked together. Our prayers are with him and his family!

I am very saddened to hear Troy passed. He was an inspirational leader, a driven and balanced man with a kind heart. I still remember the look of shock on my two boys face when he sent a fedex box the size of a watermelon full of candy for my boys on Halloween. He always got a kick out of their antics and lit up sharing hunting adventures. It was contagious. He had a gift for finding great words of encouragement thru our time working together. I know he made an impact on my life and I feel lucky to have known him. May your family find peace in this difficult time. Sincerely David Okimoto
It still seems impossible that he is really gone, someone I have known all my life. I can still see him hanging out the window of the car in the rain working the windshield wipers with a rope yelling back in the window “Rita Faye, we better not tell my Mom about this”. One of many happy memories with Troy. He touched so many people with his kind heart and gentle soul, this world is a better place because of him. My heart is with you all.
Our loss but heavens gain!
Cousin Troy will always hold a special place in our hearts.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
Deb and Jade…….thinking of you so much this week. Such a great loss and will miss Troy so much. What a great guy. I am so blessed to have known him. Prayers to you for strength and healing hearts…………Rest in peace friend…….xoxoxoxoxoxooxox Love, Jill and Bob Wiese
Troy touched many people’s lives and those who new and were fortunate enough to work with him are better today for knowing Troy. May Christ’s mercy and peace come to you and your family during this difficult time. You will be missed greatly Troy. Prayers are with you and your family during this sad time. “Do not let your hearts be trouble. You believe in God believe also in me. My fathers house has many rooms if that were not so would I have told you that I am going there to prepare a place for you?” John 14:1-2.
Deb and Jade,
I don’t know where to start. I owe my entire professional career to Troy as he invested and trusted me to succeed each every day. This has afforded me and my family to have a great and prosperous life and am forever grateful. I have so many wonderful memories of our times together the last 20+ years and have been so blessed to have crossed paths. His spirit and legacy will continue to thrive in all those he inspired.
