In Loving Memory

Troy Justice Ellis lost his life at the age of 11 doing one of his most beloved things, hunting with his dad. With a smile and laugh that would light up any room, Troy was a precious soul who loved hunting, fishing and playing ball. T-Man loved enjoying all of God’s great outdoors. 

Before May 1st, 2020 when Troy went to be with his heavenly father, he was a young but old soul. He was a kid that absolutely loved the outdoors, animals, ball, mama, and Jesus. He was the “too cool for school” kid that would much rather be with his family, grandparents, hunting, or down by the “frog pond”. He was FULL of life and had a bright future ahead of him. He was a regular ole country boy that would try to blow off school to enjoy nature, however; he was a closet reader (as his dad called him) and was absolutely brilliant. Troy was a little bit artsy, a little bit sensitive, and a little bit country. Just a good ole ball playin’ dude. He could crush a baseball and block you right out of your socks. He was a natural deer hunter (12 deer in his 5 seasons of hunting) and had caught more 5+ lb bass than most grown men. Wow, do we miss him! His mom and I want to be able to give these experiences to other little boys and girls. Through The Troy Ellis Foundation, we hope to raise money to help Little Troys in our communities play ball, fish, hunt, camp and enjoy God’s great outdoors just like our T-man did.



Our Mission

Seeking to put God’s LOVE into ACTION, The Troy Ellis Foundation was created in memory of Troy Justice Ellis. We will strive to be a force of inspiration and hope within our communities. 

The Troy Ellis Foundation is an organization that will reach out to the youth athletes in the surrounding communities to better the facilities, athletic programs, equipment and lessen the cost for the community and/or parents. We want to help give children an outlet to express themselves, learn life lessons, and have fun.


Troy's Favorite Verse


“Behold, I will send for many fishers,” saith the Lord, “and they shall fish them. After that I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain, and from every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.”

Jeremiah 16:16

The ability to make new memories with Troy has passed. However; making new memories in his name will help us leave a lasting legacy in his honor. Though God has blessed us with other children, the hole in our hearts will never be mended. But with God in our hearts, nothing can be against us. We plan to continue making memories with our precious children and the children in our communities. Thank you so much for your gracious donations to help us make Troy's legacy lifelong.
