Obituary

Richard P. Troy (Dick), most recently of Kennebunk, ME, formerly from Arlington, MA, Lexington, MA, and Woburn, MA, died of a broken heart on May 20, 2019. He lost his wife of 56 years a mere 3 months ago, after a sudden illness. Dick was born and raised in Arlington, and a star athlete at Arlington High playing hockey, football, and his beloved baseball. As a Junior in High School, he was drafted by the (then) New York Dodgers as a pitcher with a wild knuckle curve. A serious car accident thwarted that prospect later that year. He met his wife at Bryant and Stratton Business School and after marriage they moved to Lexington, where they resided for 25 years. As President of the Men’s Softball league, then later Coach and President of the Middlesex Babe Ruth Baseball league, his family can attest to being dragged from field to field while sharing his love for the game. Dick was a financial salesman at State Street for 39 years, moved to Woburn in 2001 and retired in 2002. He was busy volunteering with Minuteman Services, and following all of his beloved Boston Sports Teams. In 2016, they moved to Kennebunk, where they felt at home near the sea. He was beloved by his family and grandchildren. His wife Priscilla (Howard) Troy predeceased him. Dick is survived by his two children and their spouses, Kimberly and Richard Hogan of Kennebunk, ME, and Scott and Susan Troy of Lexington, MA. Also, his four grandchildren, Patrick Hogan and his girlfriend Carson Salvetti of Nashua, NH, Stephen Hogan of Kennebunk, ME, Samantha and Matthew Troy of Lexington, MA.
There will be no services, but Dick will join Priscilla in memory later on this summer under blue skies at the beach.
In memory of Dick, we suggest a gift to Hospice of Southern Maine. Gifts may be mailed to HSM at 180 US Route One, Scarborough, ME 04074, or made online at www.hospiceofsouthernmaine.org/give.

We are so very sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in God's sure promise of a resurrection as set forth in the Bible (Acts 24:15, John 5:28, 29). Those who are raised to life on a restored paradise earth will have the prospect of never again being subjected to misery, sickness, and death (Revelation 21:4). These and other comforting Bible verses and thoughts can be found at jw.org.

I was a neighbor and a player on his baseball teams in the late 70's, early 80's. He was the the perfect person to coach young people who needed lessons in toughness and discipline. No nonsense, no frills, funny as the day is long. Man he kept us laughing with his low key humor. Met him from time to time in restaurants and stores for the next 30 years and we always sat and had a drink or a chat. He never forgot us. Kel and I always loved ya Dick....... Chris Fuery

We have had the good fortune to have had the blessing of Dick's friendship for many years. He has always been a compassionate and caring person throughout his life. Those of us who have had the benefit of basking his friendship have lost a true friend. In recent years, Dick has endured numerous medical set backs with a great deal of fortitude. His wife Priscilla was his pillar of support during their entire marriage and he deeply appreciated her endless love, support, and compassion. Dick's legacy has been a treasure trove of pleasant memories to his loved ones and dear friends. God bless you, Dick. We will always have fond memories of you throughout our lives. RIP, Kevin and Anne Marie Giroux

My deepest condolences to the family of both Dick and Priciilla. I was so very sadden to hear of Dick's passing and had been unaware of Priscilla's passing just a few short months ago. I had the fortune of getting to know them at Hammond Place in Woburn, where I assisted them in their move to Maine as their Realtor in Woburn. Instantly our relationship went from one of business to a friendship, as they were two of the nicest and fun loving people that I have ever had the opportunity to meet. Both my and my wife's thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Dick and Pricilla's. Bob and Maureen Bittelari

My life is soooo much better having known Mr. Troy. I met the Troys when their daughter Kim and I first met at Bowman School when our sons were young. Close to 25 years ago. They both treated me like I was family. We enjoyed parties at Kim's house or just drop in visits and they would be there . Mr Troy had a huge infectious laugh but that paled in comparison to his big heart. When I lost my mom suddenly and had to fly alone to come back to Boston , Mr Troy suggested he fly Kim out to fly back with me. It is something I never will forget. A man who always looked out for the welfare of others. Like I mentioned his laugh was deep and fun. I was lucky that both of his grandsons played hockey and baseball and with my sons so we spent alot of time at rinks or ball-fields. When they moved up to Maine I was fortunate to visit them multiple times. We would sit , laugh and talk about the "good ole days". I feel blessed to have sat next to him at lunch after his beloved Priscilla died. I could feel his pain and felt helpless . A man who helped so many others and there was nothing I could do. He loved his family and I know they will miss him so very much. The world has lost a special man . When I am down I will recall his smile and that awesome laugh of Mr. Troy. When I go to visit Kim and her family it will not be the same. I'll want to just walk over to their condo.....RIP Mr. Troy. Love you and Miss you, Barbara Schuster Barbarba
