LaDorne "Mark" Troupe(1931 - 2018)


LaDorne "Mark" Troupe died peacefully at home on August 6, 2018 after a brief illness. Mark was born in Goshen, IN May 18, 1931 to Mark LaDorne and Cora Troupe.

In the 1950's, Mark moved to California and was a resident of Canyon Country for the last 47 years.

Gifted with mechanical, logical, and organizational abilities, his tireless work ethic lead him to employment in the 70's at Magic Mountain as a project manager, where it was said of him: "Mark, in very short order, (was) widely respected as a man who could "get things done." Subsequent to that, Mark was a project manager for various construction and architectural firms in the Southland.

Until recently, he was a constant force on the tennis court along with his wife Donna. He and Donna were also enthusiastic downhill skiers frequenting Mammoth Mountain regularly. When he wasn't participating in sports, he was watching them. His beloved SF Giants and the 49ers were his lifelong favorite teams. A quiet man, Mark was known as a straight-shooter, a man of integrity.

He will be deeply missed by both family and friends.

Mark is survived by his wife of 43 years, Donna; his two children: Pamela Troupe and Christopher Troupe and his step-son, Neil Newcomb.

An Open House Memorial will be held 11:00am-2:00pm on Saturday, August 18, 2018 at the NorthBridge Clubhouse, 27595 Cunningham Dr, Valencia, CA 91534.
