Troy Sean Mott Sr. was born May 23, 1988 in Portland, Oregon to Rita Mott of Portland, Oregon and Troy Berry of Galesburg, Illinois.
From the day he was born, Rita knew he was something special. Troy was a handsome young man with a charming smile and a set of dimples that would make your heart melt. His parents enjoyed his laughter and his intense love of family.
Troy attended Harold Oliver Elementary School, Centennial Middle School and
Madison and Meek High Schools. Troy was extremely intelligent, strong-willed and had an unforgettable sense of humor.
From an early age, music was always in Troy’s heart. He used to think he was the rapper Lil’ Bow Wow; in which he enjoyed writing and performing his poetry and raps in his mother’s living room in front of his siblings..
Troy always enjoyed family holidays, birthdays and other family gatherings. He loved to eat home cooked meals, enjoyed sharing laughable moments and listening to his family talk about what was going on in their lives. Troy was always supportive, loving and
dedicated to his family and friends. He had an immense amount of love for each and
every person who was a part of his life. On January 10, 2014 with Jazmyn Green, his firstborn son, Troy Sean Mott Jr., was born and became the love of his life.
Fatherhood brought out the best in Troy. He formed a lifetime bond with his son that could never be broken. Expanding the Mott family name, Troy and Tiffany Harrison welcomed Zoë Madison Mott, a precious baby girl on September 16, 2016.
Troy leaves behind to cherish his memory, beloved mother Rita and father Troy; his aunt Jeanette Gardner who helped raise him; his siblings, Ashley, Jeray, Ciarra, Branden,
