To Lyle and Porky, Troy will be sadly missed. I remember Way back when we were kids playing guitar and playing horseshoes. His style was so much like Chet Adkins and back on both of what she loves so much music we heard and we try to sing that was so funny! I will remember the laughter and the fun we all had. My prayers go out to you and Family
Lyle and extended family, Know that we are thinking of you during this difficult time. We weren't surprised to read of brother Donald's interest in playing the guitar. Our prayers to you all. Jeanne and Jim Peters, Platteville, formerly Deerbrook.
