Richard Duane Troth was born in Sioux City, Iowa on July 8, 1943 to the parents of Duane and Betty Troth. Rick grew up and spent his childhood years on a farm in Northern Nebraska. At the age of 18, he enlisted in the US Army, serving three years in Germany and Fort Gordon, Georgia. Rick married Anna Lee VanZyll on May 4, 1971 in Ponca, Nebraska after meeting at the Little Bear in Morrison, Colorado. Their marriage resulted in two boys, Jonah and Jason Troth. Rick was incredibly proud of his two boys and spoke of them at every opportunity possible, they were truly his pride and joy.

Underneath that rough exterior, there was kind man with a giant heart, along with a willingness to help friends, family and even strangers in any way that he could. He really was the strong silent type. You could tell that he was whenever he met someone new because he would always shake hands with that shy smile on his face.

Rick was a wonderful, caring and teaching father. A man who could cook like no other, fix, build and create anything. He passed this talent onto his children, who are forever grateful. He was also a caring friend to many throughout the world over his many travels and adventures. He will be missed and loved forever.
