Troy Dean Boos was Born September 7, 1968 in Atlantic, IA to Ron and Michal Sue (Yarger) Boos, and passed September 5, 2023 at Methodist Hospital Des Moines, IA.
Troy was raised on the family farm near Massena, IA where he learned about farming, ranching, trimming and training horses.
Troy graduated from Cumberland-Massena (CAM) High School in 1986. During school he was very active in football, wrestling, FFA and 4H. Troy was also a great singer, and sung in local establishments in his earlier years.
Troy attended College at Iowa Lakes for Aviation after High School, where his close friendships remain to this day.
Troy married the love of his life, Christine McCoy, on June 19,1993 at the United Methodist Church in Lewis, IA. Troy and Christine started a family and had 3 children; Joshua Lee, Monica Jere, and Tyler Lane.
The family settled in the Cumberland-Massena area, where Troy worked as a Rancher and at several local businesses, eventually taking over the family farm where he raised Charolais cattle and horses. Troy also loved his dogs. Troy had more patience with animals than he did with humans.
Troy enjoyed hunting, fishing and making knives, among his many talents, and taught his children to hunt and fish, and he also taught them love, respect, courage and how to navigate through life. Family fishing trips to Minnesota were an annual vacation.
Troy always looked at life as building a fence, one of his passions. Hard work, but rewarding with the finished results. Troy passed this on to many.
Though Troy’s body is gone, his spirit is here in everything we do.
Troy is survived by his wife Christine, his children Josh (Sara) Boos, Monica (Joel) Winther, Tyler (MacKenzie) Boos, his grandchildren, Able Smith, Rosylyn Winther, Gracelyn Winther, Haley Winther, his sister Brandi (Rick) Mericle, and many other relatives and friends.
