Troy Allen Richards

Troy Richards, 41, of Mariposa passed away unexpectedly at his home on July 25, 2013.

He was born to Pelk and Dorothy (Wackerman) Richards of Mariposa on Dec. 1, 1971.

Troy had a wonderful way of making everyone around him feel special. He had a wonderful smile and contagious laugh. He loved to dance, act, travel, cook, and especially loved the outdoors. Troy spent his adult life in the retail and banking industries that took him up and down most of California, Wyoming and Texas. Troy was heavily involved with Relay for Life and the Mariposa County Schools Foundation (Kids First).

He is survived by his partner and spouse of 17 years, Viktor Richards; his only son, Tyler Richards; his father and mother, Pelk and Dorothy Richards; and his older sister, Tammi Richards—all of Mariposa.

The family will remember Troy’s life at a private family memorial.
