    Condolences to the Feltmann family.

    Remember Troy for his thoughtfulness and dedication to people and the way he would communicate and talk to anyone he would meet; very sincere individual.

    Coached Troy in high school baseball; excellent gap hitter getting many extra-base hits despite his speed. A pleasure to associate with such a personable individual.

    May God be with you all.
    God Bless!!!

  11. Dan Kappel

    I played legion and town ball with Troy in Winsted and always enjoyed him as a teammate and friend. Years later we were able to catch up on our lives as our daughters competed against one another in high school softball. I always remembered his anniversary because my wife and I were married on the same day and year. Troy volunteered his time to help out with the sound system work at the region baseball tourney in Winsted last August and I am so glad that we got the chance to sit and watch baseball and talk about our families , which I know meant so much him. My sincere sympathies to Lisa and Family.. he will be missed by many. God be with you and bless you!
