Troy Dewayne Hoover


Troy Dewayne Hoover  was born on May 26, 1948  in Perryton, TX to Leon and Grace Hoover. He graduated from Beaver High School in 1966. He attended Northwestern Oklahoma State University  graduating with a Bachelor's degree in Chemistry in 1970. After graduating from college, he began farming in Beaver County. Troy had been the chief at Elmwood Fire Department since 1990. He was a member of the Beaver School Board for 7 years. He worked for Phillips Petroleum, (later becoming DCP) for over 31 years. He earned an award for working over 25 years without ever calling in sick.   

In 2002, he married the best thing that happened to him, which was Leslie. Troy and Leslie have three daughters, Tana “Pete” Hoover, Whitney Holmes, and Courtney Arellano. His pride and joy was his grandkids. He loved chasing them in football, soccer, basketball, baseball, stock shows, and all the school activities. He would always be there proudly cheering them on.

He loved his cattle, farming, and ranching. He never had boys until the girls got married, and he finally got “his” boys. You would always hear him say he was a Genius to the boys. There was never a question he did not know, even if he had to make it up.  He loved to hunt and do anything with the grandkids. He loved his famous “cowdog”, his toy poodle, Boomer. 

He was preceded in death by his parents Leon and Grace Hoover, and his brother Jerry Hoover
