Troy Dickey

With a heavy heart, I ask for your help. Our friend and co-worker lost her husband. Troy passed unexpectedly January 6th due to complications from a stroke. As you can imagine, the family is grieving right now and the last thing we want them to worry about is finances. Funeral expenses are only the beginning for this amazing family.

Anyone who knew Troy, knows he had a huge heart and would help anyone who needed it. Please consider helping this family in their time of need. 

Troy was born in Houston TX in 1971. He was born to play football. His dad is the late Eldridge Dickey, first African American QB taken in the NFL draft with the Oakland Raiders. This was a passion he shared with his children.
After Troy was done playing at University of AZ as a wide receiver, he furthered his career with the Cincinnati Bengals , NFL Europe and Arena football until he retired in 2002. After his playing days, Troy enjoyed working with troubled youth and Troy could be found on the sidelines, teaching young men about the game.

Troy and Cara Passarella met in 1992 at the University of AZ. After years of being apart, they married in 2014 and had several children and grandchildren.

Troy was a God fearing man. He shared his passion with all those around him. Troy could often be found sharing the word with strangers at various places, such as the grocery store, his sons’ football games, anywhere. He was an amazing father, husband, and best friend. He will be missed.
