Troy Clayton Crist, of Wylie, Texas, went to be with Jesus on May 1, 2018 at the age of 70 years. Troy was born on October 31, 1947 in Greenbriar County, WV to Ralph and Goldie Crist. He grew up in Quinwood, WV and graduated from Crichton high School in 1966. Troy resided in Charleston, SC until recent months when he moved to Texas to be closer to family.

Troy lived every minute to the fullest and never met a stranger. His smile lit up the room. He was always good for a laugh. Troy had a very generous heart; it was nothing for him to pay for people’s groceries ahead of him in line and enjoyed creating random acts of kindness. He will be greatly missed by those who loved him.

Troy Clayton Crist is preceded in death by his parents and by his brothers; Dalton Harold Crist and Zennis Forest Crist. He is survived by his wife, Lois McKenna Crist, children; Wendy Goodwin (Michael), Tony Clayton Crist (Miranda), and LaDonna Michelle Aguilar (Daniel), siblings; Buddy, Kermit (Linda), Grover (Donna), and Caroline, as well as many nieces, nephews, friends and extended family.

Services will be held at 11:00 am on May 4th 2018 at The HUB – The Church RC 4388 FM 1565, Caddo Mills, TX 75135. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you consider making a donation in Troy’s name to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital which was especially important to Troy.
