Troy, 74, passed away Oct 14, 2018 surrounded by his loving family. Troy was born Oct 2, 1944 in Granite, OK, to Troy and Dorothy Groves. His family moved to OKC when he was very young. He graduated from Capitol Hill high school in 1962. He married his high school sweetheart, Jacqueline May Williams on November 17, 1962, and they remained married for nearly 56 years. Shortly after they wed he went off to boot camp for the Air National Guard and served 6 years. After his time in the service he worked at Tinker Field as an electronic engineer and attended OU at the same time working towards a degree in electronics. Troy and Jackie were blessed with two sons, Tim and Tracy. Troy was a hard worker and always did his best to support his family. In 1971 he started his own company, Electronic Services Unlimited, for which he successfully operated until his death. Troy had his pilot’s license and he owned a Grumman Tiger airplane. On occasion, he flew his family around to different destinations for family trips. Troy also loved sports cars and owned a number of them over the years. Troy and Jackie enjoyed taking their sports cars for road trips and made lasting memories. Troy and Jackie were huge Neil Diamond fans and took the family to a number of Neil Diamond concerts, even sneaking on the stage claiming to be a photographer on one occasion. Troy had many hobbies and pastimes but his family was the most important to him. His family will miss him deeply.
