Troy Henry Braaten

December 9, 2016 — November 29, 2023

Troy Henry Braaten of Sheridan, MT passed away November 29, 2023, just before his 7 th birthday.
He was born December 9, 2016, in Dillon, MT to parents Rodney & Amanda (Young) Braaten and big
sisters Hannah, Nicole and Janell.
From a young age, Troy loved hay bales and tractors. He loved to go on the four-wheeler to the fields to
irrigate; so much so, he used his own money to buy an irrigating shovel. His favorite season was “haying
season.” He loved to ride in the tractor and bale wagon counting tiers and then go home and set up a
living room farm with his toys. He loved to make, build and “fix” things. He loved to give things he made
or pictures he drew to others. He loved to be outside, playing, hunting, roping, playing in the water,
playing in the mud, and making and growing their own garden with Janell.
When he was four, he started driving in the Madison County Fair Tractor Pull. He liked to beat his Papa
in the tractor pull and figure out ways to improve. Last summer he added a set of duals to his tractor at
Thursday night shop nights and named it “Super Dual”. He was a member of the Shootin’ Shamrock’s 4-
H Cloverbud’s where he showed goats and lambs and built a wooden barn that he entered in the fair.
He attended Kindergarten and First Grade at Sheridan Elementary where he quickly made friends and
enjoyed learning, show and tell, math, recess, P.E. and football buddies.
We are encouraged and comforted by his sweet spirit and love for Jesus.
He is survived by his parents and sisters Hannah, Nicole and Janell. Grandparents Dale & Bonnie Braaten
of Kalispell, MT and Harlan & Pat Young of Backus, MN. Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and friends too
numerous to mention.
In lieu of flowers, memorials can be made to the Ruby Valley FFA Alumni, Madison County Fairgrounds
Improvement Foundation, Ruby Valley Healthcare Foundation, Shootin’ Shamrocks 4H club, Sheridan
Booster Club or any other organization.
Services will be Thursday, December 7 at noon at Sheridan Elementary School. Lunch to follow, with the
burial at 3 pm at the Sheridan Cemetery. Visitation will be Wednesday, December 6 from 5-7 pm at K &
L Mortuaries in Sheridan.
The family would like to say thank you for all the love and outreach they’ve experienced during this
time.
