Remembering John Troidl

May 08, 2021

It is with a heavy heart that I announce the passing of John Joseph Troidl.  The Davis Enterprise has the story here.  As regular readers of the Davisite know, John was a passionate defender of public health, whether it was proper protocols and practices for COVID-19 or poor air quality at the Nishi site.  His postings to the Davisite can be viewed here

John had a PhD in public health as well as an MBA, and he also taught public health at several universities.  He was an advocate for Health in All Policies and wanted Davis to adopt it.  He was never afraid to fight the good fight and stand up for what he believed in, but always with a smile and an easygoing manner. 

I will miss him.

What shocking and tragic news! John was a pillar in the class of '72: A model academic, a stallwart sprinter of the Knights track teams of '70 - '72 (which went virtually undefeated in dual-meet, conference and CCS competition) -- and a genuinely great person and friend. Although I lost touch with him over the years (save for the occasional reunion), his later accomplishments (PhD & MBA) are of no surprise to me -- or anyone -- who knew of his intellect and work ethic. He will be very much missed at future reunions, by all who knew him, and by those who had yet to meet him. RIP John.
