Memories Timeline


  1. Shelby, we are so sorry to hear about Troy Gene. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the Kibodeaux family. May he rest in peace with the Lord and may the Lord give you comfort and peace. Remember, this too shall pass.

  2. Been years since I’ve seen you, but when I heard you had gone it broke my heart as if we were together just yesterday my friend. You’re in a better place and we’ll meet again one day.

  3. I am so very sorry. Troy was definitely "one of a kind" and a more fun dancing partner than most! Please know all of you are in my thoughts.

  4. Oh my just read Troy had passed away and sad I missed his memorial service. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. Just know Colton that your daddy loved you with all his heart and will forever be watching over you from above. God bless all of you! He now dances in Heaven with the angels, where he is at peace and united with God our father where there is no more pain and suffering.

  5. I am saddened to learn of the passing of an old friend. We went to Jr. High and High school together. Troy was a unique individual. I have many fond memories of him and i cutting up and just being boys. He will be missed. Ride on, my friend!!!!

  6. My Brother, I never, ever, EVER thought Id be in this place. We may have not had a great relationship but we never forgot we were brothers. No matter what. We couldn’t discuss the weather without finding something to argue about. And that was okay. We always made it through. But DAMN, BRO…..where’d you go?

    I Love you, Troy. 

    Your little Brother,


  7. My family and I are so sorry to learn of your passing. We want to extend our sincerest condolences to you and your family. We will keep you and your family in our daily thoughts and prayers. May GOD bless ALL. May you REST IN PEACE TROY!

  8. We just learned of Troy's passing and are greatly saddened. Troy was a neighbor of ours, and was always willing to help us at anytime and would often stop to visit. He came by after the Hurricane to check on us and offered to help. During his visits though he was quiet spoken he would talk about how much he loved Colton and the rest of his family, he also spoke about how he wished things had turned out differently in his life. Praying for his family and friends and that Troy is now Resting in Peace.
    God be with you during this difficult time.
    Don and Dianne Lyons

  9. Haven't received a call lately about how I need to check in on a man. Didn't realize that I would miss you so much. You gave great advice, built the best fires, cooked great and made me smile. I hope you are kicked back in a hammock, in a feild watching bulls graze. Until we meet again. RIP

  10. My deepest condolences to Troy and family.  Troy always had great stories when he’d come and get his haircuts.  You will be missed Troy and your stories
