Troy Waters Memorial

Troy Waters unexpectedly passed from this life on April 22, 2019. Troy was larger than life and there was no one who ever met him who didn't love him. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle, coach, friend, the person to know if you needed anything and the person who seemed to know everyone. He was always helping someone and would give you his last dime if that meant he could make your burden even a bit lighter. He was the life of the party and had a smart aleck comment for every occasion. He was the most loving person and had the ability to make you feel like you were his best friend even if you just met. You always found him with a smile on his face and a baby in his arms. He worked hard and played harder. He loved hunting, football, softball, racketball, and coaching just about every sport and kids he got to coach, among numerous other things. 

Troy leaves behind his amazing wife Janet Gerhauser Waters; daughter Shanna (Douglas) Broadstreet, sons Bronson (Brittany) Waters and Austin (Jessica Barber) Waters; grandchildren Brinley Waters, Reagan Waters, Cooper Waters, Jackson Broadstreet, Annaleigh Broadstreet, Denver Waters, Adaline Waters, Lennon Waters, and Alyse Broadstreet; sisters Ramona (Don) Douberley and Sheila (Ron) Towns; brothers Glen (Lori) Waters, Wendell Waters, and David (Brandi) Waters; mother Vivian Welch Waters; numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.
