Arthur Stanley 'Stan' Troia
July 29, 1942-Nov. 16, 2020
Stan, a devoted husband, father and grandfather, joined his late wife Bobbi in Heaven. Stan passed away in his daughter’s home after battling pancreatic cancer. Stan was a loyal friend and neighbor, beloved by all who met him. Once you became a friend of his, you remained so for life. He kept everyone connected to each other and we counted on him to keep us all together. A resident of Pleasanton for 45 years, he was known as “The Mayor” of his court. Always available to help anyone with their home improvement and gardening projects, he was a father and friend you could rely on. Stan was well known for his vegetable garden, fruit trees, handiwork, and the blue jays that would follow him around landing on his hand for a peanut. His daughters will look back on their childhood with wonderful memories of camping, hiking, fishing and sailing with their father. His long-time friends will remember skiing, cars, camping and the “Birthday Club”. As a retired UPS driver, Stan will be remembered fondly by his co-workers, managers, and customers alike. In retirement, Stan loved to garden, travel, volunteer for Pleasanton Military Families, and most recently volunteer at Alden Lane Nursery. Stan’s memory, friendly smile, kindness to all, love of nature, and his passion for life and learning will live on in his three daughters, son-in-law, four cherished grandchildren, and his many friends. Stan’s family, friends and all who knew and loved him, hope to celebrate his life in the spring or summer of 2021 at Alden Lane Nursery. In lieu of flowers, please send a donation to Pleasanton Military Families, or purchase flowers or plants for your home from Alden Lane Nursery, in Stan’s memory.
