Troy Walker passed away peacefully at the age of 90 on March 22, 2020. Troy was born in Bonham, Texas on March 11, 1930. He served with pride and honor in the United States Army as a Msg. Sergeant for 20 years and 22 days. After his retirement from the Army, he worked by supporting the local Highland Park school districts in many capacities. Troy was known by many for his noble acts of kindness and generosity.
Troy is preceded in death by his twin brother (Roy), both his parents and siblings. He is survived by his wife, Jacqueline, of 41 years, his daughter Barb (David Werhane), and two stepdaughters, Lori Carani and Debbie (Ron Workman). He also leaves behind three grandchildren Amanda Summitt (Jason), Ryan Werhane (Emily) and Kendall Werhane, and four step-grandchildren Delaney Workman, Brock Workman (fiancé Ellie Johnson), Ronald Workman (Moira), Megan Boos (Brian), and five great-grandchildren.
