Troy Lea left us much too soon with many dreams and plans unfulfilled. He was a hard worker who started at a young age working with his father in the oil fields of Eastland County. He was transferred to Roswell, New Mexico and worked for Exco Oil Company for several years and was quite successful. Troy loved life and enjoyed living. He had the infectious gift of laughter and the ability to make people laugh. He brought joy to many. Aside from the love and care for his own family, Troy’s passion was the motorcycle organization “International Fraternal Order of Eagles” which he and his friends belonged to and their main purpose was to help people in need. Troy will be sorely missed.
