Troy was born in Bryan, Texas to his parents Arby and Dorothy Gray Wager on October 24, 1958. Troy was a reserved man who enjoyed the simple things in life. He was always concerned about the safety of others and wanted to make sure he was doing his part in protecting his community as a police officer for the City of Bryan and then as an investigator for the District Attorney’s Office. He was an avid fan of both Dallas Cowboy and Texas A&M Football. It was a delight for Troy to drive his daughter, Tori, to all her Barrel Racing Competitions. It is fondly noted that Troy enjoyed dancing and will be remember most as a dancing machine.
Troy’s law enforcement career began with the City of Bryan Police Department in March 1982. Troy worked through different divisions of his eighteen years with the police department before retiring as Sargent in 2002. It wasn’t long after Troy picked up his second career in law enforcement with the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office as a jailer then as an investigator with the Brazos County Districts Attorney’s Office for nine years. Troy’s love of his neighbors gave him the drive to serve daily in law enforcement.
His mother, Dorothy Gray Wager; his wife, Sandra Johnson Wager; both precede him in death.
Troy is survived by his wife of 19 years, Kim Wager; his children, Joshua and wife Kim Wager, Dustin and wife Aliza Wager, Cody Wager, Chance Wager, Holly and husband Coby Gleason, Samantha Lopez, and Tori Wager; his father, Arby and wife Marie Wager; his brothers, Travis and wife Colleen Wager, Jason and Tracy Wager; his grandchildren Lily, Avery, and Brady; and other close relatives and friends. Honoring Troy as pallbearers for his service are Dustin, Cody, Chance, Erik, Jakob, and Joshua. Troy’s family asked that any member of the Law Enforcement Family be recognized as an honorary pallbearer for a man who lived his life of service.
Troy’s family wished to thank Hospice Brazos Valley staff for the superior compassionate care given to Troy during his time with them. Memorial donations can be given in his name to Hospice Brazos Valley Inpatient Facility, 502 West 26th Street, Bryan, Texas 77803.
