In 2011, the Begemans moved back to Breckenridge to be closer to family. Troy loved spending time with his family and especially making homemade ice cream for the grandkids. He also enjoyed watching his great-grandkids play sports. Troy was a member of First Baptist Church and worked as a custodian and office/outdoor engineer from 2011 until he retired again in 2021.
