troy albert degolyer

 

Our beloved Troy Albert DeGolyer passed away in his Blairsville home of 15 years, and joined our Creator, on Monday, Oct. 31, 2005.

He is preceded in death by his father, Elijah Coldwell, his step father, Paul W. DeGolyer Sr., his brother, James Carl DeGolyer and his sister, Judy Mead.  He is survived by his mother, Mildred DeGolyer, his wife, Carli DeGolyer, his children, Nick DeGolyer, Jolee Miles and Vickie Hajash, his sisters, Veronica Davis and Yvonne Clemmons, his brother, Paul A. DeGolyer, and grandchildren, Alex and Jazzmyne DeGolyer, Rachael and Gregory Miles, and Taylor Hajash.  Troy’s mother and siblings reside in Cincinnati, Ohio.  His wife and children reside in Georgia and Florida, respectively.

A strong Native American bloodline defined Troy’s character, resolution and values.  Troy’s mother is of the Shawnee Nation, and Troy’s late father was full blooded Apache.

Troy served as a Corpsman in the US Navy for four years and the Naval Reserve for two years.  Following his military service he started a successful security alarm business in largo, Florida.  Here he met his wife Carliss in the summer of 1080 and adopted a son, Nick, the following year.  He was a devoted father and husband.

Throughout his life, Troy utilized his unique ability to find the beauty and potential in all things.  In perfecting this ability, Troy moved his family to the city of Blairsville, located in the Blue Ridge mountains of Georgia.  Here he began a respected truck accessory business as well as a mobility products company.  With hard work, strong will and the help of his family, Troy steadily created a beautiful estate and spiritual refuge from an old rustic farmland.  This newly renowned home was properly named “Two Eagles Estate”.

In keeping with his tradition of beautifying life, Troy was a self taught artist.  Mother Earth was his canvas and inspiration.  He skillfully etched, drew, painted and sculpted images of nature and Native American life.

Troy has left us a legacy of endurance, respect, quality and love.  He will be dearly missed by all who love him.

A memorials service was held on Thursday, Nov. 3, 2005 at 2 p.m. from the funeral home chapel with Chaplin Bob Huggins officiating.  In lieu of flowers if you wish the family requests that memorials may be made to the American Cancer Society or to the Rheumatoid Arthritis Foundation in Mr. DeGolyer’s memory.  The North Georgia Honor Guard conducted Military Honors.
