    Mr. Troeh (who I just learned through his obituary shares his middle name with my first) has been a driving influence in my life and a wonderful mentor. Much of the vocal skill I claim today was nurtured by this man as well as advice for a growing teen. Thank you Mr. Troeh, I am honored to have known and been trained and counseled by you. RIP. -Frank Brannon
