Troy James Tolbert Sr. was born on February 10, 1961 to Lola Tolbert and the late James Tolbert, Sr. As many may know, Troy celebrated his birthday on February 14 because according to Troy, this was his actual birthday.
Troy was educated in DC Public Schools and received his GED. Troy worked with his father who owned an air conditioning and refrigeration company. After some time, Troy began working in the service industry in the Events Set Up and Planning Department. He worked many years at The Hotel Washington and was employed at the Washington, DC Convention Center at the time of his passing. Troy was a hard worker who was admired and respected by all. Troy was an overcomer and advocate for those needing a second chance. He provided job opportunities to others to move ahead and make a better life for themselves.
Troy loved to laugh and was always good at keeping others laughing with his jokes. His quick wit was infectious and throughout his life he was loved by all those he met. His jokes assisted him to always stay upbeat and positive which was especially needed since Troy was a Washington Redskins fan. If you entered into a crowded room, you could always find Troy by just following where the laughter was coming from.
Troy met Tina Anderson in 2002. They married on September 28, 2017. From this union they had a daughter, Charley Angel. Troy also gained a bonus son, George, who Troy was proud to help raise. Troy loved his family and could always be seen at family gatherings laughing it up or sharing wisdom from his life experiences.
