Troy Ballard Black of Calgary, AB passed away suddenly from cardiac arrest at the Puerto Vallarta Medical Center in Mexico on February 17, 2018 at the age of 34 years. Troy had a passion for politics, hockey, golf, cooking, looking after others and making people laugh. He married his best friend Lindsay five years ago in August and they enjoyed traveling and spending time together in work, in play and in life. Troy always wished to make a difference in the world. Although Troy lost his battle, he would have taken solace in knowing that the blood donations made in his name will save many other lives.
