Troy will be remembered for the joy and laughter he always brought to those around him. He could liven up a room with his infectious smile and quick wit. An encounter with Troy could lead to a day of fishing, a round of golf, or a long conversation about his Buckeyes because he never met a stranger.
He was preceded in death by his father, Glayden Schafer.
