Troyce Douglas Bagley was born in Abilene, TX, to Douglas Bagley and Bettye Bagley on April 3, 1984. He was a graduate of Merkel High School, then continued his education in Lubbock, where he graduated from Texas Tech University.

Troyce was a co-owner of Bagley Farms in Merkel, with his father and brother, where he spent many long hours working, planting, or harvesting. Troyce met the love of his life, Lauren Schoonover, in Abilene, where they were later married in May of 2017. In February of 2019 they were blessed with twin boys. Troyce was a hard worker, but in any spare time, he could be found with his wife, and twin boys working around their property together, or enjoying time at the lake house. Troyce always enjoyed getting to take the boys for a ride on the gator or farm equipment.

He was a loving father, husband, son and friend, with a one-of-a-kind personality. He will always have a special place in our hearts, and we will miss him tremendously.

Troyce was preceded in death by his grandparents, Horace M. D. Bagley, Elouise Bagley Burson, Mary Buford Shahan, Thomas Allan Shahan, and Aunt and Uncle Gayle and Dennis Gollihar.

Troyce is survived by his wife Lauren Bagley, sons Ridge and Ryker Bagley, father and stepmom Douglas and Debra Bagley, mother Bettye Bagley and Jim Encke, brother Heath Bagley, stepsister Tiffany Fry and family, stepbrother Brandt Carter and family, aunt and uncle Bill and Christine Shahan, Inlaws Jim, Holly, Art, and Audrey Schoonover, and nieces Sadie and Ellie Schoonover, and Maddie Fry, along with many cousins and extended family members.

Pallbearers will be Heath Bagley, Art Schoonover, Michael McDonald, Jesse Abshier, John Niblett, Sean McGregor, and Jacob Mayo.

Memorials in lieu of flowers may be given to March of Dimes, Abilene.

The family of Troyce Bagley wishes to extend our sincere thanks to all who have reached out, and for all the kind words and prayers through this unexpected, tragic loss, of our loved one.
