Obituary

Anthony D. Troop, a long time resident of Hatboro-Horsham, was called home to be with his Heavenly Father on January 4, 2017.  He was 69.
He was the devoted husband of Beverly (Wright) Troop, with whom he had shared 48 years of marriage. 
 
Born in Philadelphia, he was the son of the late David R. and Bernice (Bookheimer) Troop.  A graduate of Father Judge High School, Anthony served honorably and bravely in the United States Marines during the Vietnam War. 
 
Dubbed the unofficial “mayor of Hatboro” by family and friends, Anthony was greeted by someone he knew everywhere he went. Generous of heart and opinion, Anthony was well known for his gift of patience and possessed the true soul of a servant. Anthony was a beloved member of Hatboro Baptist Church, a community of which he thought of as a second family. 
 
His surviving legacy, in addition to his wife, are his four children and seven grandchildren : Tracey Tolchin (Michael, Emily and Joshua), Michelle Kelso (Keagan and Camryn and Robert Kelso), Anthony (AJ) Troop, and Amy Mozzone (Anthony, Gianna, Talia, and Olivia), as well as brother and sister-in-law James and Meg Wright, three nephews (James, Timothy, John) and niece (Maggie).
He was well loved.
 
Friends and family are invited to attend his visitation after 10 am, Thursday, January 12, 2017 in Hatboro Baptist Church, 32 N. York Rd, Hatboro; where his memorial service will be held at 11 am.  His interment service will follow in the church cemetery.

I had the pleasure of getting to know Tony through our membership in the Hatboro Baptist Church. Tony reflected a breath of fresh air when it came to being a good “Steward of God House” and the responsibility we had as a community of believers to maintain it with excellence. Tony believed that the condition of God’s house was a testament to the love and compassion that dwelt within. To him appearance gave the seeker visual evidence of God’s transformational ministry.
To Bev and Family- Trust in God's Promise to comfort you in your sorrow, and strength to face this journey.

Tracey and family, sending love and prayers to you in your time of loss. My heart breaks that your daddy left this world so soon, but rejoicing that he is walking with Jesus. I hope My Grandpop and him met and are enjoying Jesus together!
