A Mass of Christian burial for Troy Michael Vance, a commercial real estate leasing and marketing manager who was killed Sunday when he was struck by a car while walking in the 1000 block of York Road in Towson, was to be offered at 11:30 a.m. today at St. Joseph's Roman Catholic Church, 101 Church Lane in Texas. He was 26.
The former star athlete and honor student at Loyola High School lived in Chevy Chase.
Since his graduation from the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School, he had worked in commercial real estate, first for the Trammell-Crow Co. in Northern Virginia and then for MIE Investments in Baltimore. He was working for Metro Commercial Leasing in Washington at the time of his death.
Born in Bethlehem, Pa., he grew up in the Baltimore area, attending the Pot Springs Elementary School, St. Joseph's School and Loyola High.
At Loyola, he won four letters playing defense for the lacrosse team, of which he was co-captain, and won three letters as a linebacker on the football team.
In his senior year at Loyola, he was named the school's Scholar Athlete. A member of the National Honor Society, he was awarded the Dr. Ford Loker Medal for excellence in both athletics and academics. He had been named to an all metro lacrosse team and was an All American high school lacrosse and football player.
At Penn, he continued to play lacrosse, winning four letters in the sport.
He is survived by his parents, Michael and Theresa Vance of Timonium; a brother, Nicholas J. Vance, also of Timonium; his maternal grandmother, Jeanette Bibbo Alfano of Cockeysville; and his paternal grandmother, Billie Kay Vance of Denver, Colo.
The family suggested memorial contributions to Loyola High School.
