Troy was born April 14, 2000 in Wausau to Heu Yang and Andrea Wilcox. He enjoyed playing football for Wausau East and recently received his High School diploma. Troy enjoyed working for WOW as a Customer Service Rep.
Troy was a beloved son, brother, grandson, cousin, nephew and friend to many. He had a big heart and could always be counted on to help those in need. Troy was idolized by his younger siblings with his little brother, Ri Yu, going so far to mimic his clothing choices. Troy cherished the time spent with his younger sisters, Meah and Maliah also. He was extremely close to his mother, Andrea, and shared all his life experiences and goals for the future with her. He was also known for his great sense of humor and love of pranks, especially enjoying pranking his dad, Heu. In Troy’s free time, he liked to play video games and taught his dad to play along with him. His greatest passion was fishing, either by himself or with family and friends.
