Prugh-Thielen Funeral Home obituary – Troy Jay Jackson, 50, Danville


Troy Jay Jackson, 50, of Danville, died June 25, 2022 at the Southeast Iowa Regional Hospice House in West Burlington, Iowa.

Troy was born August 28, 1971, in Grundy Center.  He was the son of Richard and Deloris Jackson.

Troy graduated from Danville High School in 1990.

He married Wendy Doyle and had three beautiful children together: Baylee, Macy, and Wyatt.  Troy and Wendy later divorced, and he married Christy Drummer.

In his earlier years, you would find him working at the Wal-Mart Distribution Center. He then obtained his CDL and drove a truck for Black Horse until he had to give that up due to fighting lung cancer.

Troy loved life to the fullest. He had many hobbies and he loved them all. In the winters you would find him snowmobiling. In the summers he would spend his days on the river and nights at the racetrack. Most of all, Troy loved his family dearly. He cherished all the time he spent with them. It didn’t matter what they did together as long as it was together.

When Troy was diagnosed with lung cancer three years ago, he wasn’t scared. He was determined to beat it. He was so courageous through it all. Troy had so many supporters throughout his battle. His family supported him through it all. His four-legged companion, Mylee was by his side the whole time. His wife Christy was there for every single moment, the good times and the bad. Troy was one heck of a fighter. He fought until his last breath.

Troy will be dearly missed by his wife Christy; his children Baylee Jackson of Danville, Macy Jackson (Conner Orth) of Burlington, and Wyatt Jackson of Danville; stepchildren, Mackenzie Langan (Matt Shoemaker) of Burlington, and Ayden Doyle of Danville; his granddaughter, Oakley; parents, Richard (Rochelle) Jackson of Winfield and Dee Jackson of Mount Pleasant; mother-in-law, Barb Drummer of Danville; siblings, Kim Hauswirth of Danville, Jason (Lonetta) Jackson of Danville, and Kristi (Levi) Palmer of Morning Sun; several nieces and nephews, Kylene Hauswirth, Kolton, Kody, Kelsey, and Kaleb Jackson, and Brantly and Tyler Palmer; and multiple aunts and uncles. 

Troy you will be missed, always and forever.

Troy was preceded in death by his maternal and paternal grandparents and several aunts and uncles.
