    Default Help for Troy's family

    As some of you are aware, a friend of ours named Troy passed away from Cancer a couple of weeks ago. Troy has been a been a regular in the boating world for many years. Some of you know him from running the local lakes in in the East Valley and others probably know him from his time at Parker.

    Troy's mother is having a very tough time with finances right now due to Troy's unexpected passing. She had just lost her job and is struggling to pull together services for her son.

    We (The Eastside Crew) would like to ask anyone that can help to please paypal a few dollars, so that we can present Troy's mom with a check at a cermony on Dec 12th. We will be celebrating Troy's life by taking his family and friends on a daytime run at Saguaro lake. We want his family to see that Troy had a positive influence on everyone he came in contact with! I for one will never forget his positive outlook on life and feel blessed for having known him the short time I have.

    Here is a thread with pictures of Troy and some words from his friends.

    Also, his mother is having to sell his boat, which by the way is flawless!

    So, I know it's close to the holidays but anything would help at this point. Please feel free to IM or e-mail me should you have any questions and feel free to join us on Sat Dec 12th 11am at Saguaro lake! Troy would appreciate a large turnout!

    Paypal: [email protected]

    Thank you everyone and god bless!

    Thanks to an anonymous donor we went over the $300 mark this morning. Thank you again to everyone that's taken the time to donate for Troy's family. We'll be presenting his mom with a card and a check on Dec 12th at Saguaro Lake.

    Thanks~

    Terry, I wish I had better news but we've only collected a few more dollars, probably in the $350 range now. There are some people who will be giving me money at the docks, so $400 should be do able. I'm hoping for a few more paypals before Sat.

    Thanks,
