While attending college at Mt. Hood Community College in Gresham, Oregon, he worked for Ross Hollywood Funeral Chapel in Portland, Oregon. After graduating in June of 2000 he continued his career with Smith Lund Mills Funeral Chapel in Cottage Grove, Oregon. 

Troy returned to Eastern Oregon in January of 2002 to rejoin his parents in the family business. In 2015 he completed the purchase of his father's (Wayne Hanson) funeral home in Prineville, OR, Whispering Pines.  While managing the Baker City and John Day funeral homes for Dennis and Darlene (mother & step-father), Troy's passion leads him to spend a great deal of time in Prineville preserving his father's legacy.  He truly considers himself blessed to have the opportunity to serve families and friends in Baker City, John Day, and Prineville. 

He is a member of the Sumpter, Oregon Masonic Lodge, a member of the Benevolent Protective Order of Elks #1824 in John Day, and past member of the Baker City Lions Club. Troy enjoys the many outdoor activities offered in Baker, Grant, and Crook counties, from skiing and snowshoeing to elk, deer and bird hunting and fishing. He enjoys spending his time off in the surrounding mountains or on one of several rivers Northeast Oregon has to offer including the Wallowa, Imnaha, Snake, Deschutes and John Day Rivers. 

Troy takes an immense amount of pride in his work and does everything in his power to make sure each and every person he helps is well taken care of during their time of need as well as long after.  After meeting Troy, you will have a friend.
