Moving on to another special place during Teacher's Appreciation's Week, Mr.Trosch continues to share his beliefs with others through technology. It is awesome to read about the thoughtful memories from his students, other teachers and friends. The Bacik family shared many of them, also. Prayers are sent your way.
I grew up in Altoona and enjoyed watching Tree and the Frankies at the Jaffa Mosque. He was quite the ball player. My sympathies to the family. May he rest in peace.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Trosch family! Mr. Trosch was one of my favorite teachers. He always told us when you don't do right, You'll have a good time for a short time until it ends in tragedy!
So many memories of Coach Trosch...
Thoughts and prayers to the Trosch Family. My husband and I both had him as a teacher and have great memories. I myself laugh when I think of him saying to our class I bet Chippy's ( Mr. Casper) classis sleeping over there let's go wake them up and he'd have us march around the class room singing . What a blast. He will be remembered forever. Tina WMN 84 & Gus WMN 78
He was one of my favorite teachers, a gentle and fair man...... RIP Mr. Trosch
Mr. Trosch was the guy that I always looked forward to seeing during my senior year. His Pysch class was not only fun, but so good that it made my college Psych class a piece of scale. Almost nailing a hole in one on a par 3 at Butler's to win a bet from him in the student/teacher match was one of my all time favorite moments. He had a fatherly way to relate to me, and so many others, that you listened and respected what he had to say. I have always tried to carry that ability out in my 18 years as a teacher. He later talked to me as a friend when I started subbing, which too was one of my favorite memories. During this Teacher Appreciation Week Wilbur, I say thank you for leaving the world a better place. You inspire me. My sympathies to the Trosch family.
