After the end of World War II, he worked briefly at a company which manufactured farming implements. Sometime later, he joined the U.S. Postal Service, where he was employed for 32 years. His desire to farm never left him, and over the decades, he accumulated acreage in Hunt and Delta Counties.
Troy was not educated beyond high school, but he was a natural scholar. Over the years, he became an aficionado of the nuances of American Civil War history. On one occasion, he set a history professor straight on the facts of history.
He left the Postal Service in 1981 to farm and ranch full time. Once again, the natural scholar learned about cattle breeding and developed a locally well-regarded hi-bred herd.
His most recent years were spent in assisted living homes in Dallas.
He is survived by two brothers, Cecil Stooksberry of Dallas, and Franklin Stooksberry of El Monte, California, plus 8 nephews and nieces.
