June 24, 1959 — April 28, 2014
Scott Robert Troop, 54, of Medical Lake, Wash., passed away April 28, 2014, at Kootenai Medical Center in Coeur d’ Alene. Scott was born June 24, 1959, in Walla Walla to Oliver and Willa Dean (Ogden) Troop.
Scott attended and graduated from Walla Walla High School in 1977. He worked as a large-machine mechanic in many settings for the majority of his career after graduation from Eastern Washington University with his bachelor’s of science degree.
Scott loved the outdoors, including fishing, hunting, camping and golfing. He also loved to travel to anywhere near water so he could spend his time fishing, especially Sullivan Lake. Scott also enjoyed reading sci-fi fantasy novels, playing pool and darts, going to the movies and good food. He was an experimental cook who loved to try new recipes.
He is survived by three children, Leanne Troop of Alaska, Kellie Troop of Montana and Kyle Troop of Washington; one sister, Sherry (Wayne) Hein of Washington; and one niece, Cassandra Stidham of Washington. He was preceded in death by his parents.
Cremation was held and the celebration of life for Scott will be held at a later date to be determined. Notice for the celebration of life will be posted on Bell Tower Funeral Home’s website as well as sent out to family and friends when details are finalized by his children. In lieu of flowers the family suggests donations may be made in Scott’s name at any Wells Fargo Bank location, or sent to P.O. Box 3547, Post Falls, Idaho 83877. All funds will go toward the purchase of a memorial fishing bench to be placed at a local lake.
