Roger Troy McGuire
Troy was born Feb 4, 1966, in Anderson, S.C. After finishing high school in northern Virginia, Troy moved to Boone and was employed in the construction industry. Troy was not only an accomplished carpenter, but also an avid and excellent banjo player. Troy was instrumental in initiating the Friday night Todd General Store music jams.
Troy is survived by his son, Grayson McGuire of Jacksonville, Fla.; his father, Phil McGuire (De'an) of Boone; his sister, Jenny McGuire Blevins (Alan) of Troutman; brother, Phillip McGuire of Asheville; by his beloved nieces, Macy Dressler, Bryn McGuire; nephews Marshall McAleer, Ben Blevins, and Ethan McGuire; great niece, Layla Dressle; and by his special friend, Christie Fredenburg.
Troy was preceded in death by his mother, Shirley Maness McGuire; and his grandparents, Marshall and Macy Manass and Roger and Ala McGuire.
In addition to his family and friends, Troy loved his banjo, old timey music, the history of the N.C. mountains and the people who live here.
