Troy Antwon Walcott, Sr., of Hartford, Connecticut, passed away on April 27, 2017. News of his passing quickly reverberated across his caring community, shocking and dismaying many who loved, respected and cherished this compassionate, kind, and wonderful man. Troy was born on June 14, 1979 and was raised in Hartford and Bloomfield, Connecticut. As a child, he was treasured, nurtured and raised by many aunts and uncles. The first born American child of an extended recently migrated Jamaican family, Troy embodied the American Dream and the Jamaican values that define his family. As a young child, Troy was the leader among his cousins - making them laugh as they played in their Grandmother's yard, galvanizing them for Camp Courant during summer mornings and popsicles during summer evenings, and encouraging each cousin and sibling with love and warmth. A leader among his peers, family, and friends, Troy often led by example and demonstrated strong moral aptitude, kindness, courageous character, and determined ambition. In 2002, he was the first among his generation to graduate from college. Troy attended The University of Connecticut (UConn) in Storrs where he earned a degree in Communication Sciences. While at UConn, his creative and artistic skills led him to write, produce, and host the popular UConn Campus TV Show "Holla@Me" for which he won the UConn Daily Campus Show of the Year Award in 2002. Troy was also featured in the UConn's Nutmeg Yearbook for his work on "Holla@Me". During his educational career at UConn, Troy began to recognize his talent for the performing arts. A versatile and charismatic actor, Troy performed both on stage and in film; he has appeared in several local commercial and independent films. His accolades range from the lead character in "Ditch" to a background actor on "Saturday Night Live". In addition, Troy starred in commercials for Access Health CT, New Haven Register, New Haven Magnet School, Mobile Electronics, Middletown Business District, Delta Dental, ConnCat and, most recently, WayBack Burgers, a restaurant commercial that aired during Super Bowl LI. Troy was a staple and stronghold in his community. Giving back to the community, pouring kindness, encouragement, and love into others and lending a helping hand whenever it was needed was second nature. He truly cared about others. Family members could count on Troy to spontaneously stop by their homes to "check in" on them, students could count on Troy to make them feel extraordinary and powerful - able to conquer the world no matter life's challenges - and friends could count on Troy to be a listening ear. Troy could also make you laugh! He always had a joke or story to tell. And if you spent any time with him at all, at some point the conversation would turn to his favorite basketball teams, Connecticut Husky athletics, and WrestleMania! His down-to-earth manner and kindness resounded across the Greater Hartford community. Troy was a longtime volunteer at the Middlesex YMCA Therapeutic Mentoring program, where he spent hours mentoring disadvantaged youth, and served as the coach for the Bloomfield High School Women's Volleyball Team. At the time of his passing, Troy was employed by the Bloomfield Board of Education. Prior to that, Troy was employed by the CT National Guard as a resource for families of deployed soldiers. Troy had many great passions in his life, but only one great love - his wife and his family. On March 26, 2010, Troy married Keeley Wolf, his college sweetheart. Their union produced two beautiful children - his "smallcotts", Troy Antwon Walcott Jr (TJ) and Brielle Mary Walcott. Troy was the consummate family man and a hands-on and devoted father to his children. Troy leaves to mourn his passing, his loving wife Keeley and two adored children; his beloved parents, Clinton and Beverly McKenzie; his siblings, Troy (2 nieces), Chemere (2 nieces), Thricia (1 niece and 2 nephews), and Kamisha and brother-in-law Justin (2 nieces); as well as countless loving aunts, uncles, cousins, family members and friends. Troy shared a birth month with some special family members - his aunts, Blossom and Cherry and his niece and nephew, Kiana and Chase. Troy is predeceased by his beloved grandmother, Gladys Thompson, with whom he shared a special bond. Troy frequently and affectionately called his grandmother his "best friend"; together they laughed, watched wrestling, shared time and many special memories. Troy Antwon Walcott, Sr., was a loving family man, cherished community member, talented actor, gifted comedian and amazing father and husband. He is gone too soon. Though his life may be no more, his illuminating light and legacy will last for always. His funeral service will be held at 11:30 a.m., Wednesday, May 10, 2017 in The Lodge Community Chapel, 130 Deerfield Rd., Windsor, CT 06095. Visitation will be held from 10:30 - 11:30 a.m. prior to the service at The Lodge. Interment will follow in Mount St. Benedict Cemetery, Bloomfield. Carmon Funeral Home of Windsor has care of his arrangements.
