Troy J. Anderson
Troy Jon Anderson March 19, 1982 - March 19, 2015 SOUTH BEND - Troy Jon Anderson, born and raised in South Bend, Indiana, graduated from Riley High School in 2000.
He moved to Bozeman, Montana, in 2000 to play football at Montana State University. He loved the people, mountains, and endless open sky, so stayed to make it his home.
He passed away March 19, 2015, his birthday of 33 years, after a lengthy battle with cancer.
He loved music, hunting, shooting, football, and floating down the Madison River on a warm and sunny summer day. Most of all he loved spending time with his friends. He had a heart of gold, always loving, giving, trustworthy, fun and loyal. His nickname "Beast" started in high school for his exceptional strength and mental tenacity. He put everything he had into what he loved doing.
He is survived by Ted and Tracy, Mom and Dad; his brother Ryan and wife Amber, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. Memorial pending. We will love you forever!
