“It is with great sadness and heavy hearts we have to announce our precious son, Troy Dean, passed away earlier today,” his father, Merrill, shared on Facebook at the time. “As a family our hearts are broken but we are comforted in the knowledge we will meet again.
This is part of Heavenly Fathers plan for Troy. We will always remember him as the sensitive, caring and talented boy who brought so much happiness to all who knew him.”
“Where in the world is my son today… I cannot believe you are so far away…”
