Troy Claude Maxwell

September 29, 1965 - April 23, 2018

Troy Claude Maxwell passed from this life and into the kingdom of heaven on April 23, 2018 while in the arms of his wife after a two year battle with cancer.
Troy was born September 29, 1965 in Oklahoma City to Claude S. Maxwell and Gertrude M. Maxwell. He was raised in Perkins and attended Perkins Tryon schools from kindergarten through graduation. After graduation, he entered the U.S. Navy serving on the U.S.S. Iowa and the U.S.S. Wisconsin during his service. He married schoolmate and lifelong best friend Brenda Elsom on December 31, 1986 and they were married for the next 31 years. He was a machinist by trade but had traded that for outside sales at the NAPA store in Stillwater which he enjoyed immensely. He made friends easily, could speak on any subject, had a wonderfully twisted sense of humor and was always up for a good time whether it was hunting, fishing or just hanging out with his friends and family. He truly enjoyed life and loved his family and friends and was intensely loyal to them. He was always one of the first to offer to help a friend or a complete stranger not because it was expected but because he actually enjoyed helping folks out.
He is survived by his wife, Brenda of the home, his mother Gertrude Maxwell of Perkins, sister Sue Watkins (Steve) of Edmond, brother Rolf Schmitt (Dany) of Frankfurt, Germany, nephew Kyle Watkins (Kayle) of Moore, great niece Sawyer Watkins ofMoore, niece Jennifer Fedele (Ennio) of Frankfurt Germany, brother-in-law Steven Elsom (Crystal) of Stillwater and many, many very close friends. He was predeceased by his father Claude S. Maxwell. A gathering of friends and family will be held at a later date.
