Troy, the son of the late Rose Maine Green and the late Gus Green, was born and raised in Paterson, New Jersey. He resided in Paterson until moving to Linden six years ago.
Troy was the manager for fifteen years for Johnstone Supply in Kenilworth, a supplier of HVAC & refrigeration parts, supplies and equipment.
Troy was known among his family and friends as being a superb chef, whether he was cooking on the stove or doing a BBQ outside. He was the main man when it came to cooking for all the holidays and special events. Somehow, Troy always outdid himself. On top of all that, Troy, generous as always, made sure that there was an abundant amount of food left over, so it could be packaged up for his family and friends to take home. This way, they could continue to enjoy Troy’s culinary talents, even in their own homes.
In his spare time, Troy enjoyed watching the various professional sports teams on television, especially football and basketball.
Troy is survived by his wife of five years, Karen N. Rios Torres. Prior to their marriage, Karen and Troy knew each other for fifteen years. Troy also leaves behind his son, Corey Green; his three stepchildren, Brayan Escobar, Cladys Escobar and Michael Valverde; his two brothers, Rodney Green and Lawrence Green; his sister, Zelma Jackson and Troy’s Green and Jackson nieces and nephews.
As per the regulations imposed through the State of New Jersey, there will now be a maximum of one hundred and fifty people allowed in the funeral home and face protection is required. We thank you for your understanding during this time of transition.
