  17. Troy, was not only a brother mason, but a good cop….the years I worked with him on APD, and rode cars with him, I will always remember.

  18. My deepest condolences to the McHone family. Troy was a soft spoken and gentle man who was respected by all that served under his leadership. I feel honored and grateful to have known him. Troy was a ‘Cops’ cop a man you could always depend on. His leadership style is rarely seen and he was one of the last supervisors of an era that the buck stopped with him. You could always depend on Troy tying up all the loose ends at the end of the shift. There’s a special place in Heaven for those few like Troy McHone. God bless you Troy and the entire McHone family.

  23. Mrs.McHone, my father and I have been keeping you and your family in our hearts and prayers all week. Mom and Dad were married 55 years also when she passed away suddenly 4 years ago. How devastated we were. We remember you being in the receiving line that day. Thank you so much. Both of us were honored to have worked with your husband at APD. My father has many, many good memories and happy stories about policing with Lt.McHone.He has revisted them all this week. God bless you and yours and know that you are being lifted up by everyone that cares, even from miles and miles away.
