A candlelight vigil honored the memory of 20-year-old Troy Stilwell.

The young man died from a heart attack while playing basketball in the gym at the River Church in Holly, according to the church's pastor.

His death Sunday night came as a complete shock to the many who never knew Troy had any medical problems.

Pastor Caleb Combs tells 7 Action News Troy played basketball at the church regularly and also attended services.

He says the graduate of Holly High School had a larger than life personality.

Friends of Troy also acknowledged his desire to always make other people happy and support friends through difficult times.

Donations to help pay for funeral expenses can be made on a GoFundMe page.
