Norman Troy Campion, 87, of Portland, Texas, passed away January 30, 2015. Troy was born in Bay City, Texas to Norman and Montry Campion. At an early age, the family moved to Sinton, Texas where Troy grew up and called his childhood home.
Troy graduated from Texas A&I University in 1950 with a Bachelor of Science in Agriculture and then began teaching in Ed Couch-Elsa ISD. Later that year, he was drafted into the United States Army, where he served in Korea as a tank commander in charge of 5 tanks and 20 soldiers. He has said that his greatest achievement in the military was being able to bring home alive all 20 men who served under his command. Upon his return home, he went back to teaching in Taylor and Woodsboro for another two years. It was while teaching in Woodsboro, Texas that he met his wife, Delta Mae Koch, who he married on December 31, 1954. In January of 1956, he became the farm and ranch manager for Reynolds Metals Company in Gregory, Texas. He continued in this position until he retired in 1986.
