Growing up, Troy played and loved all sports, and continued by coaching his own boys along with many others for the Redmond Parks Department, Redmond West Little League Baseball, and the Redmond Select Basketball program. Troy grew up in Bellevue and graduated from Interlake High School Class of 1979. He served a two year mission for his church in Viña del Mar, Chile. He married Lori Lynn McLeod in 1983 in the Seattle Washington LDS Temple. Troy earned a B.S. degree in 1986 from Brigham Young University in Information Management. After finishing school, he joined the family supermarket business, working together with his Father and later his brother Tyler in Bert’s Red Apple Market in Seattle, and added a second store, Bridle Trails Red Apple Market, in Kirkland in 1997. He became well-known in the food industry, serving on different committees at Associated Grocers and Northwest Grocers. Troy was an avid golfer, spending as much time as possible on the links around the country. He was able to golf St. Andrews in Scotland, and fulfilled some life long dreams over the years by golfing Pebble Beach with his beloved wife Lori and Oakland Hills, Sawgrass, Muirfield, and Inverness with his many golf buddies. He obtained every golfer’s dream by sinking a “hole in one” on June 3, 1994 at the Snohomish Golf Course on the 148 yard par 3, 11th hole. His warm, kind-hearted, and friendly nature helped him develop many lifelong friendships. He was genuinely interested in everyone he met and treated each person with love and respect. Troy was truly a man of integrity and will be greatly missed by the many family, friends, and neighbors who knew and loved him!
