In 2017, Troyer announced he was receiving treatment to get help with alcohol addiction.
"As you know, I've battled alcohol addiction in the past and while it's not always been an easy fight, I'm willing to continue my fight day by day," he said in a statement on his Facebook page.
"Depression and Suicide are very serious issues," Troyer's family said in a statement after his death. "You never know what kind of battle someone is going through inside. Be kind to one another. And always know, it's never too late to reach out to someone for help."
