Troy is a true Fredericksburg native whose family was among the settlers that founded the city in 1846. Growing up and living in the Gillespie County for over 50 years has made Troy a familiar face in and around the community. He and his wife, Karlene, devote most of their time to their church, the community and a variety of non-profit organizations.
