"It is with a very heavy heart we share with you, our community about the loss of one of our dispatchers. Troy Gorden, Badge 11. Troy started his career in public safety with Laingsburg Fire Department as a high schooler and then worked as a Dispatcher/EMT for Mercy Ambulance. He then took a Dispatcher position with Clinton County Central Dispatch and then finding his home at Shiawassee County Central Dispatch in 1999. In 2015 Troy began having medical issues and had to go into early retirement. He was put on a kidney transplant list and after some time, our own 1st responder family member, Traci Settlemeyer donated one of her kidneys to him. At that time He was able to come back to his SCCD home and began working again in 2018. After a short time his new kidney started to fail and once again had to retire. He was a giver at heart and it showed in the amount of friends and strangers he impacted. He will never be forgotten and will live in all our hearts for ever. We’ll take it from here, RIP Gordo. And, as Troy would say, “thank you for your support -Troy Gorden 8-6-67/12-28-19."
