Liddell obit 2.tif

Jan. 9, 1965 – Aug. 10, 2013

The families and friends of Kelly and Troy Liddell have once again come together, this time under the most tragic circumstances following an accident that took their lives away from all of us on Saturday, Aug. 10, 2013. These same families and friends have rallied, supported, cried, laughed and will go on because of the beautiful lives of Kelly and Troy.

Services were held Sunday, Aug. 18, 2013, at Parkview Evangelical Church (15 Foster Road, Iowa City) at 2 p.m. for visitation, and 4 p.m. for services to remember, reflect, share and support. Please understand because their spouses have just left the hospital from their injuries, they were not able to see all and visit, but they will always cherish your thoughts, prayers, love and support during this time and beyond.

Troy Nelson Liddell was born Jan. 9, 1965, the son of Alonzo and Joan Liddell. He attended schools in West Liberty, graduating from high school there in 1983. He married Martha “Marty” Bowman on Sept. 3, 1989. After high school Troy worked as a mechanic for a number of years in the area before joining Proctor & Gamble in Iowa City in 1991. They became proud parents of Shawn and AJ, and have enjoyed watching and supporting them in their lives as they have gone through Clear Creek Amana Schools and now both at Buena Vista University in Storm Lake. Troy was such a “Proud Dad”!

In addition to his family and friends, Troy enjoyed much in life. Cheering and coaching his kids in baseball, cheering on his beloved New York Yankees, tinkering and fixing up anything that had a motor and wheels in his shop; as being a mechanic just never left his soul. He also loved car races, either in person or in front of the tube!

Troy shared his time, talent and sense of humor with his family, friends and community. His time here has enriched and influenced many, he will continue in all of us as we remember our husband, dad, son, brother, uncle, and dear friend; we already miss you!

His family includes his wife, Martha Bowman Liddell; sons, Shawn and Aric (AJ); parents, Alonzo and Joan Liddell; brother, Todd Liddell; mother-in-law, Margaret Bowman; brother and sister-in law, Curtis and Amy Bowman; nephews, Ryan (Hannah)Liddell, Colin (Rachel) Liddell, Dalen Liddell, Rolan Liddell, Jake Bowman and Travis Bowman; and his faithful companion, Scout his dog.

Troy was preceded in death by his father-in-law, Jim Bowman and died with Kelly Liddell.

Online condolences may be sent for his family through the web at In lieu of flowers a memorial fund has been established for the continued wellbeing of their children.
