Troy Lyn Elkins, age 45 of Normandy, passed away Tuesday November 10, 2015. Troy’s journey ended after two long, hard fought weeks in the intensive care unit at Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga. Troy was born March 20, 1970 just eleven minutes after his identical twin Roy. After 45 years of being inseparable, Troy’s passing leaves Roy with a special level of grief and his sister, Becky with a broken heart. Working in construction since a teenager, Troy was a skilled and talented carpenter, capable of building and fixing anything, for those privileged to know him, we will miss his smile, tender heart and easy going nature.
Troy is survived by his brother Roy Elkins and his sister Becky Kelly. He is preceded in death by his wife Sheri Tipps Elkins; mother Ann Prince Elkins; father Raymond Thomas Elkins; grandmother Ollivene Prince; grandfather Cecil Prince.
The family will receive friends Saturday November 14, 2015 from 10:00am-12:00pm with a funeral service to be conducted at 12:00pm with Pastor Phillip Moody officiating. The internment will follow at Smith Chapel Cemetery in Lynchburg, TN.
Tullahoma Funeral Home is honored to serve the Elkins family
