Obituary of Scott Lawrence Troll
Mr. Scott Lawrence Troll, age 56, of New Milford, passed away on Saturday May 15th, 2021.
Scott was born in White Plains Hospital in New York on December 28th, 1964 to Peter and Louise Troll. He was the husband of Carol C. (Pines) Troll. He was the second child with older brother Jeff, followed by Steven. He grew up in New Fairfield, CT where he spent his formative years outdoors swimming and fishing, fixing cars, playing basketball, baseball and later softball. He graduated from New Fairfield High School in 1983. Following high school, he attended Porter and Chester where he studied auto-mechanics. Subsequently, he became involved in the moving business as an owner/operator. He worked for the town of New Fairfield in the highway department for 13 years. He was also a dedicated member of The Faith Church in Brookfield, CT, where he served as a member of the men’s club. His most recent employment was at Autozone in Brookfield, CT. He was one of the most handy people you could encounter and loved spending time with his friends and family. He also thoroughly enjoyed playing poker, reading a book, hunting, camping with his son Matthew and daughter Lauren, riding his motorcycle, snowmobiling, cooking pizzas in his outdoor brick oven when hosting events, playing horseshoes and going clamming with his son Christopher. Scott was an amazing cook and was very creative in his own way. He would create amazing vegetable platters with various designs and made the most amazing apple pie. He loved eating in general, especially seafood and Italian food. Scott was also very social and loved animals. When it came to helping others, he went way beyond the norm and would help anyone including strangers.
Scott most recently loved spending time with his granddaughters, Juliana and Gia. He and his wife Carol, along with his son Chris and step-daughter Christina would spend every other Sunday with his “Peanut and Pumpkin” playing games, sledding, boating, and anything else his precious girls wanted to do with “Poppy Scott.” Last but not least he had a connection with the ocean and was going to retire to a quiet spot near the Atlantic Ocean. His final wishes of having his ashes spread over the ocean will connect him where he was the happiest.
He is survived by his wife Carol Pines-Troll, his parents Louise and Peter Troll, his sons Matthew and his family of Kunkletown, PA, and Christopher of New Milford, CT, and daughter Lauren and family of Easton, PA, his step-daughters Jessica and her family of Southbury, and Christina Spiegel of New Milford, and his brothers Jeff and his family of New Fairfield, CT and his brother Steven and his family of Apex, NC along with all his aunts and uncles, nieces and nephews and his incredible life-long friends. Scott dedicated his life to helping others and he will be dearly missed by everyone.
