Michael J. Troxell, 60, of Jenkins Twp., passed away Saturday, April 16, 2022, at home. His wife is the former Susan Kayatin. He was the widower of the late Mary Gennaro. Born in Easton, he was a son of the late Earl and Margaret Beam Troxell.
A graduate of Easton High School and Mansfield University with a degree in criminal justice, Mike was a record-setting quarterback for the Rovers and the Mounties and had a former career as a police officer in Huntsville, Ala. Mike was employed at Gilberton Power Station as a shift supervisor since 2001.
A loving husband, father, grandfather and brother, Mike was known to those who loved him as loving, positive and optimistic. He started each morning with a song in his heart and a skip in his step. A do-it-yourself man, he had pride for his Corvette and newly renovated basement.
