I am a colleague of Dr. Major. He was an outstanding part of the medical community and will be greatly missed.

Dr Troy Earl "Teddy" Major will be forever loved by my family for his dedication and friendship. He was my Dermatologist on paper, but in reality he was one of the best friends I have ever had. The number of times he reached out to help me with medical issues that he was not directly involved with, are too numerous to count. He was also a gifted philosopher and life skills coach. My favorite part of each visit to his office, were the bits of wisdom he would impart as we talked about guitars, fishing boats and motors, sporting clay shooting and of course, the family he treasured and loved. He saved my life on more than one occasion. And I considered him the closest thing to a father that I've had since my own veteran Dad passed away in 2005. May God Bless his wife and kids, and comfort them. Everyone who was lucky enough to be in his orbit during this life should continue the fight against Covid as a loving and lasting tribute to a man who went above and beyond the "CALL OF DUTY".

Dr. Major saved my husband's life 15 years ago. He personally called our home to tell us the biopsy had revealed melanoma and it was crucial that it must be removed. Dr. Major himself quickly made the appt. for my husband Richard in 3 days. Dr. Major took care of us both ever since that time. We both love him and know he is with God.

To Troy’s family: I first met Troy when a square dancing group called the “ Wagon Wheelers” Formed, with Gary Ellison as Caller. We danced together in many places & cities including the “Ozark Jubilee”. Troy was also our Dermatologist. Troy was interested & talent in so many areas. He will be missed. Sandy Marlin Hall

Susy and all the family. We are grieving for you and for everyone that knew and loved Ted. There are no words for this huge loss. John and Ted were friends from grade school on and brought so much fun and generosity to our adult lives. Our sons send their condolences, too. Troy taught us to fly fish and we love telling stories of boating with Ted, shooting with Ted, and reminiscing with him and laughing uproariously.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Ted was my physician, a friend, fellow veteran and a man to be admired. We shall miss him terribly. The world was a better place with him in it.

My sincerest condolences to the family. I will remember the wonderful times we had shooting sporting clays and all the help he gave me in my game. You will be missed my friend.

Doc was a great man! The best! That’s who he was, the way he did things, and what he wanted for his family. I count myself blessed to know him and his family.
Jon Ames left a message on November 14, 2020:
I always enjoyed my appointment with Dr. Majors. We talked fishing and his contribution to the Wonders of Wildlife Museum. I enjoyed the visit so much the zaps with the nitrogen did not even hurt. I will miss Dr. Majors.
Fred and Faunlee Harle left a message on November 14, 2020:
So sorry to hear of his passing. He was our Dr. for many years and we appreciated him so much. Our prayers for his family.
Sheila Stevens left a message on November 14, 2020:
Oh how I will miss this man. 2-3 times a year for over 30 years. He was a rascal at times. One time I had to go in on a Sunday to see him. After my appointment, he took me into a little room full of his pictures. He was like a kid in a candy store. His eye's Twinkies. He's the one who told me I could feed my donkeys white Oreos. Every time I give them one I think of him. I will continue to do so. I'll tell them this is from Dr. Troy.
Ashley Tennis left a message on November 14, 2020:
My husband and I went to Dr. Major for several years. I had an area on my thumb that had to be frozen several visits with his famous spray can, which was very painful. At our last appointment with him earlier this year, he had the spray can ready for me. I asked, panicked, what do you have that out for? He sprayed it a couple times away from me and chuckled under his mask. He had a tough exterior and didn’t let you whine, but I know he was probably a softy with a big heart. We always enjoyed his stories and will miss him. Prayers to all of his family.
Nancy Hagan left a message on November 14, 2020:
Dr Troy Major was my dermatologist for many years. His always pleasant demeanor often encouraged me to realize my condition was not the end of the world. He was always the consummate professional full of knowledge and practical suggestions that always left me feeling better when I left his office. I have since become acquainted with his lovely wife Suzy. Please accept my sincere concern for your lovely family at my thoughts and prayers for all of you.
Bonnie Brasel left a message on November 13, 2020:
So sorry Dr Major is gone. We visited a lot when he removed a lot of skin cancers. He was a great doctor. He will be missed by me and lots of others. R.I.P. Dr Major.
Ted and Janet Siebert left a message on November 13, 2020:
We will miss him terribly, but we know he is in the arms of Jesus, no more pain. He has been our Dermatologist for 25 years, and there will never be another like him. We considered him a friend. He treated both of us after having sailed on Tablerock Lake for 30 years. He took such good care of us. Just know that we are praying for all of his family and all who loved him. God is faithful to give us peace, courage and more grace than we deserve. Blessings to each of you.
Janet Tweedy left a message on November 13, 2020:
I am so sorry for your loss. Dr. Major was a very kind and thorough doctor. We often shared stories from our travels at my visits. He was one of a kind! I will be praying for peace and comfort for his family and co-workers.
Karima Gilbert left a message on November 13, 2020:
I am so, very, sorry for your loss. Dr. Major played an important role in so many people’s lives. May he live on in the memories of his family, friends, and the countless number of patients he helped over the years.
Christine Johnson left a message on November 13, 2020:
RIP Dr. Majors. I was deeply saddened when I heard of your passing. As your patient I will certainly miss your smile and expertise. Thank you for finding my melanoma. I credit you with saving my life. You were one in a million.
Jeanie (Oswalt) Raney left a message on November 13, 2020:
Many heartfelt prayers and deepest sympathy to you and your family. Troy (we always called him Teddy) lived across the alley from us and we played together, from the time I was 6 yrs. old until Jr. High. They must have moved, because I went to CHS. At any rate, when I returned to Spfd., I started going to him & continued until his passing. He always asked about my family & me & share his hunting, fishing & shooting stories. He was an amazing doctor, whom I always claimed liked to “zap” you, but, was so careful to make sure he didn’t miss any spots. I’m sure the nurses thought I was strange, to continually call him Teddy, but, that’s how I remembered him. It truly saddens me & I am sure likewise for all his family, friends & patients. He will be missed. I will be keeping you all in my thoughts and prayers. God bless you and know you will be reunited some day. 🙏🙏🙏🙏
Cindy Nimmo left a message on November 12, 2020:
Dear family, I will so fondly think of him and smile. He was such a wonderful doctor. My husband and I would sometimes see him together, so the husband and Dr. Major would talk continuously about guns, fishing & hunting. Such a wealth of knowledge left with him. I know this won’t ease your pain, but I am truly sorry for your loss.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Jason Krebs left a message on November 12, 2020:
I usually had the last appointment of the day and he would bring out the fishing pictures. He would often hand me a trout fly that was working for him. He could tell you who were the best fishing guides. Please accept my condolences. What a character. He will be missed.
Jason MacPherson left a message on November 12, 2020:
I am deeply saddened to hear of this. I am a patient who his staff probably hated because I think I caused him to be behind because we always swapped hunting and fishing stories. Dr. Major (or "Dr. Torch" as we nicknamed him) was a great physician and wonderful man. My condolences to the family and friends: he will be missed by many but by none more than you.
Virginia Hayter left a message on November 12, 2020:
We will really miss him. I use to work in the building where his office is. Also a patient. I always told him to be nice with the torch as I called it. So sorry for your loss.

Oh sweet dear Troy. We have never known such a caring man. He wore his heart on his sleeve for all He loved. He always put others before himself and showed deep concern for his friends and patients alike. He would drop everything to assist others, I only wish I was as good a friend as he. He was a fine man, a brilliant man, a man who loved his family. God bless and comfort those he has had to leave behind, he will be fondly remembered.
Judy White left a message on November 12, 2020:

I was very sad to see Doctor had passed. I started going to him back in the 70's when he was still on the North side of town. He was a very nice, sweet man. My deepest sympathy to his family, and I believe Hank. He will be missed.
