By on February 20, 2019

Troy Douglas Waltz, 51, passed away on Feb. 10, 2019 in Lititz.

He was born on March 8, 1967, and was the son of the late Henry and Diana (Gordon) Waltz.

He is survived by his daughter: Emily; four sisters: Teresa, wife of R. Martin Blount; Lori Byrnes; Lisa Eller; and Traci Waltz; 8 nieces and nephews; and 14 great-nieces and nephews.

Troy graduated from Hempfield High School and earned a bachelor’s degree in social work from Millersville University. He was employed as a clinical supervisor at White Deer Run in Lancaster.

He loved to spend time with his daughter, Emily, whether it was eating out, going to the movies or sharing in Emily’s passion of horseback riding. He enjoyed gardening, rock music and sports, and sadly, he was a Dallas Cowboy fan! He was funny, at least he thought, and loved to joke around and have fun.

His past struggle with addiction turned into a strong passion to help others on their road to recovery. He has spent the last 17 years working in various capacities doing just that. His kindness and compassion were given freely to those around him. He was truly an example of how God changes lives.

Services were held Feb. 18 at the Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home & Crematory, Lititz.

In lieu of flowers, consider a contribution in his memory to Naaman Center, 39 W. Vine St., Lancaster PA 17603.
