Troy Bodart Death, Obituary – Troy Ronald Bodart, age 42, from Seymour, Wisconsin, passed away in a quiet manner at his home on Thursday, April 6, 2023, after a gallant struggle against cancer for the preceding six months. He was diagnosed with the disease on January 1, 2023. Troy was brought into the world on the 26th of December in the year 1980. They commemorated their union by exchanging vows in front of family and friends on February 10, 2017, in the city of Key West, which is located in the state of Florida.
Because Troy had spent his whole working life in the Ironworkers Union, Local 8 was able to depend on him in every situation. Troy derived a great deal of fulfillment from his work and was fond of bragging to his family about the different things he had constructed by saying things like “I built that” and “I built that too.” Troy’s true vocation and lifelong interest was in the trade of ironworking.
On Fridays, Troy’s favorite activities included imbibing old-fashioned cocktails, lending a hand on the farm where his family worked, going camping with his friends, and, more recently, working on the construction of the house of their dreams. In his spare time, he enjoyed doing a variety of activities, including gardening, snowmobiling, riding motorbikes, and going for walks with his best dog, Jax.
The passing of Troy will leave a significant void in the lives of many of his family members and friends. His surviving family members include his wife, Amie; his children Garrett and Brynnlee Bodart; his step-children Kyle, Carter, and Leyton Krueger; his parents Butch and Jackie Bodart, John and Chris Holtz; his in-laws Judi (Richard) Lacosse and John (Beth) Good; and his siblings Katie Bodart (Chad Pagel), Chelsea (Josh) Rudnick, Clint (Kayla) Bod Troy placed a high value on his relationships with a large number of people, particularly his brothers in the union.
His relatives Jalyn Krueger, Edmund (Viola) Foral, Joseph Makoski, Ronald Bodart, Norbert Vandecorput, and Walter “Bud” Holtz all passed away before he did. Joseph Makoski was also one of his predecessors.
