Hebert E “Coach Butch” Troy passed peacefully on August 30, 2023 surrounded by the family he loved so dearly.
Coach Troy was born in Beaumont, TX on January 14, 1941 to Herbert E. and Myrtis Lee Troy. He had a lifelong career in education and coaching. The majority of his career was spent as the football offensive line coach and the head baseball coach at Port Neches-Groves High School.
He had many accomplishments throughout his life. However, to him, his greatest accomplishment was his family. He told everyone he knew and even people he didn’t know that he had an amazing wife, four beautiful daughters, four great sons-in law, and nine super grandkids.
His life was filled with love. He loved his family, he loved his students, and he truly loved all those he met. His love for everyone stemmed from his love of the Lord.
He was preceded in death by his parents.
