Troy Lee Darling was born January 22, 1970 in West Covina, CA to Bob and Elaine Darling and passed away in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, December 14, 2022.
Troy grew up in Graham Washington and moved his family to Utah in 2003. In 1987 he met the love of his life, Maryann, in Tacoma, WA and they were later married in Sandy, Utah, on June 25, 2005. They had two sons together, Justin and Michael.
Troy had many accomplishments and always set personal yearly goals for his job with Hadco. He was so proud to be with them for 20 years.
He had finally become the provider that he wanted to be so that he could always do things like spending time with his family and friends. This included cooking for everyone on his Traeger, camping, driving his side by side and traveling on many great adventures to other countries so he could fish everywhere he traveled. Fishing was his passion.
He also accomplished a goal on his bucket list this year and went deep sea fishing in Alaska with the guys. Troy also loved bow hunting for deer and elk with his friends and family. Troy was so proud that he was the one that taught his son and grandson to hunt. That made his heart very happy. Troy was an amazing man, a wonderful husband, father, son, brother, uncle, grandfather and friend to so many. Troy was the patriarch of our family, always the protector and defender to the ones he loved. Troy always wanted to make sure everyone was on time and taken care of and he was always the first one to help anyone in need, no matter how big or small. Troy was the guy that wanted everyone to be happy and have everything they needed. He lived life to the fullest and he will always be our “Papa T”.
Troy is survived by his beautiful wife, Maryann, sons, Justin and Michael, Grandkids; Jayce, Cash, Cayden, Lillie Easton and Owen. Parents, Robert (Bob) and Elaine and brothers, Robert and Raymond. Niece, Penny and her family Allisha, Paxton and Sage.
