Levie Troupe was the oldest of 13 children born to John Frank Troupe and Esther B. Wright Troupe in Achord, GA. He was preceded in homegoing by his parents and brother, John B. Troupe; sisters, Geraldine Troupe, Alice Troupe Crofton and Pamela Troupe Henton.
At an early age, he joined Centilla Baptist Church. Levie loved music. He taught himself to play lead guitar and later switched to bass. He sang in the family gospel group, “The Starlight Gospel Singers”.
Levie loved gardening. He would plant a big garden every year until a few years ago, it became too much for him. He would always make sure family and neighbors and friends would get greens and vegetables he had grown each year. He truly loved his family and said he prayed for them everyday. We will truly miss our husband, father, brother and uncle.
