Robert Troy Carlson was born September 27, 1965 in Clarinda, Iowa, the son of Dennis Carlson and Linda Rae (Beavers) Carlson. Troy grew up on the farm in the Clarinda area. He was baptized and confirmed at St. John Lutheran Church and remained strong in his faith. Troy attended the Clarinda schools and received his GED. Troy and Tina Potts were united in marriage June, 1985 and later divorced. They were blessed with three daughters, Catrina, Sasha and Collette.

Farming and working with his Dad was great enjoyment for Troy. He loved the farm and enjoyed nature. He was a hard worker and raised cattle, pigs, a big garden and chickens. Troy would share his produce and take the eggs to town to sell. He also did a lot of canning and was a good cook. Mushroom hunting, trapping and especially fishing were all of Troy’s favorite pastimes. As a child, he was especially close to his Grandparents, Stanley and Edna Carlson and enjoyed activities with them. He also enjoyed going to the casino and was thrilled when he won his “Slingshot” vehicle and had a lot of fun giving the grandkids rides. He enjoyed driving the grandkids around the farm and showing them the farm animals. Troy had a great love of family and loved being a Grandpa! He was a gentle man and especially liked to make people laugh and smile.

Preceding Troy in death are his grandparents, Stanley and Edna Carlson and Uncle Dean Carlson.
