Francis Troup Obituary
Troup, Francis "Frank"

Our loving husband, father and grandfather, Francis "Frank" Troup, passed away at the age of 75, on Monday, January 18, 2016, surrounded by his family.

He was born in Susquehanna, PA on March 25, 1940 to George and Helen Troup. He was the youngest of seven siblings: John, Elizabeth, George, Donald, Betty and Jimmy, who all preceded him in death.

Frank graduated in 1958 from Laurel Hill Academy where he was a star basketball player. He joined the United States Air Force in 1959. That decision led him to Arizona, where he met the love of his life, Anita "Nan" Brewer. They were married on September 17, 1960 at the St. Vincent de Paul Parish in Silver City, NM. They had three wonderful children, Marie, Steve, and Bill.

Frank joined the Albuquerque Police Department in January 1965 and served the City of Albuquerque for 23 years. He then worked at the Albuquerque Downs Racetrack as the Security Manager. During his life, his real passion was shown by all the time he spent with the youth of Albuquerque. He coached little league baseball, basketball and Young American football. He was also a Boy Scout leader.

Frank was very proud of being a police officer and was very involved in the Fraternal Order of Police, serving as President for a couple of terms, as well as in other roles.

Frank is survived by his loving wife, Anita "Nan" Troup; daughter, Marie Herrera; sons, Steve Troup and wife, Jennifer and Bill Troup and wife, Samantha; and his 12 grandchildren, Ashley Quintana, Andrea Quintana and Jose, Lauren Solano and Chris, Jordan Herrera and Malia, Kayla Troup, Adriana Herrera, Jonathan Troup, Jonah Troup, Levi Troup, Eli Powell, Owen Powell and Jonah Powell. He also had seven great-grandchildren, Elijah and Jesse Sanchez, Isaiah and Isaac Valverde, Ivyana Salomon, Emily Solano, and Addison Herrera; as well as many nieces, nephews and friends.

A Visitation will be held Thursday, January 21, 2016 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at FRENCH â€" Wyoming, 7121 Wyoming Boulevard NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87109.
