Our deepest and heartfelt sympathies go to his wife, Aida, daughters, Kathryn and Tiffany and his parents, Jerry and Dorothy and to his uncle David and his wife and to the remainder of his family and to his multitude of friends. Mayor Lacy was an enthusiastic Christian servant in his faith, to his family, to his work, and to our community. His friendly smile and love of Troup and its people will be greatly missed."

Lacy died about 10:10 p.m. Thursday. Earlier that day, friends, family and residents had gathered during a breakfast to pray for Lacy.
