Obituary For Troy William Greenwald

Troy William Greenwald moved on to his next adventure on Tuesday, July 12, 2022 while in the arms of his wife, Darlene and in the presence of his two daughters, Brianna and Tanya. Troy was born in Erie, Pennsylvania on December 6, 1961, as the son of the late William (Bill) and Helen Greenwald. He was 60 years young at the time of his passing.

Troy and Darlene were married for 35 wonderful years. They lived in FL, SC and finally settled in NC. Together they enjoyed time in the pool, shooting pool or just watching TV together. They raised two daughters, Brianna and Tanya, whom they are extremely proud of and love dearly. He will be forever cherished and remembered in the lives of his family as the one who always made them laugh and smile.

Troy retired from the Social Security Administration in December 2017 after 32 years of service. His last position with the agency was Manager of the Social Security Office in Sanford NC. He was always the first one to work and took his responsibility as a public servant to heart.

Troy was preceded in death by both of his parents and his sisters Cheryl and Darla Northrup.

He is survived by his spouse, Darlene and his two daughters, Brianna of Apex, NC and Tanya of Raleigh, NC. He is also survived by his sisters, Melinda Fox of Raleigh, NC; Shelley Greenwald of Benson, NC; Robin Greenwald of Fuquay Varina, NC; and LeeAnn Solesha of Fairfield, PA. He also leaves behind nieces and nephews, cousins and in-laws.

A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 pm on Sunday, July 24, 2022 at Chatham Station, 110 N Walker St, Cary, NC 27511. Family and friends are welcome to come and share his stories and their memories.

    "What you own deep in your heart, you cannot lose through death"- Johann Wolfgang v. Goethe We are deeply saddened and would like to express out sincere condolences to you. We were often visit you during our summer vacation back then. We fondly remember the boat trips with Troy. The "pool parties" were also great. Yvi had her first diving attempts there in her younger years. Our thoughts are with you at this difficult time. Wilfried, Jen and Yvi

    Like a Bright Star, Troy has shined on so many lives. He was a great mentor, a roll model, and above all a friend that was always there. Although he has moved on he will always have a special place in my heart. I will miss you my friend.

    I worked with Troy in the Sanford NC office. He was my boss but he always said you don't work "for" me "you work along with me." That was how he was. He worked hard and expected the same from everyone on his team. He was kind, lots of fun and a sense of humor that made me always had me me on the edge of my seat. Troy, Darlene and the girls always made us feel welcome when they opened their home for work functions. Darlene thank you for sharing your husband with us. He is being missed by us all. Love Tammy

    I worked with Troy in the Greenville SC Social Security office. He was an exceptional supervisor and all around kind, caring, funny and compassionate individual. This is a definite shock. My condolences to his entire family.
