Richard Trosien

December 21, 1932 — November 15, 2017

Richard (Dick) Edwin Trosien, 84, was taken home to be with the Lord on November 15, 2017 in Sun City AZ. He was preceded in death by his parents, Elise and Edwin Trosien. Born in Detroit MI on December 21, 1932, Dick was a U.S. Navy Fire Control Technical Seaman during the Korean War. After returning home, Dick worked as an Engineer at General Motors before moving his family to Phoenix AZ in 1968. Dick was an entrepreneur. His careers in AZ included working as a traveling salesman, owner of several businesses and a mortgage banker. He enjoyed traveling, working on projects, golfing and bowling - not to mention, the occasional hand of poker or blackjack. Dick had a wonderfully dry sense of humor and had a keen sense for business. He was well loved and will be missed by his family and friends. Dick is survived by his wife, Charlotte and daughters Cynthia (Steven), Michele (Lowell) and Kimberly (Randall), 12 Grandchildren, 17 Great-Grandchildren, his Aunt and many cousins. In lieu of flowers, please donate to one of two organizations close to Dick's heart: Feed the Children ( or Halo Animal Rescue (
