Troy was born on December 6, 1968 in Bemidji, MN to Wayne and Sheryll (Logelin) Torgerson. He grew up in Clearbrook, MN and graduated from Clearbrook High School with the class of 1987. After graduating, Troy moved to North Carolina for five years and began working for North Central Service. He moved back to Minnesota and continued his career with NCS. On August 29, 2003, Troy married the love of his life, Kristin, in Las Vegas, NV. Together they made a home in Bemidji, MN. In 2005, Troy purchased NCS and became the business’s owner.

Troy thrived in the outdoors. He loved hunting and fishing all year round, snowmobiling in the winter, and golfing in the summer. In the mid 90s he earned his pilot license and would fly around Minnesota and the United States in his plane for work, as well as for fun. A huge NFL fan, Troy loved cheering for the Chiefs and watching games with friends.

Troy was a lot of things to a lot of people. A strong person, he always looked after and was very protective of those he loved. If he loved you, he made sure you were taken care of. He did his best to make sure everyone was happy around him and felt welcomed, special, and part of the family. He was generous with his time and resources. Always ready with a joke or a one liner, Troy had a great sense of humor. NCS was another family to him. Troy made a point to know everyone’s name who worked at NCS and to know them personally.

Troy was a loving and devoted father and helped raise two wonderful children. He was so proud of Taryn, in 10th grade, and Zach, who followed into working at NCS. Always there to support his kids, Troy never missed a hockey game or event. He was a caring husband and father and will be tremendously missed.

He is survived by his wife, Kristin Torgerson; his children, Zach Terrill and Taryn Torgerson; his mother, Sheryll Torgerson; his sister, Tracy Mathson; his aunts and uncles, Warren Torgerson, TruDee (Mike) Torgerson, Rita Tjenstrom, Doug Torgerson, and Don (Karen) Logelin; and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and other family.

He was preceded in death by his father, Wayne Torgerson; and his aunts, Colleen Maple and Loretta Halvorson.
