Richard "Troy" Hull

January 5, 1968 - November 6, 2020

It is with profound sadness that our family announce the passing of Troy at Ed's House Hospice on November 6. He was the much loved son of Garry & Lois, the loving brother of Garry Jr (Cheryl), Tracy (Stuart) and Susan, the adored fun uncle of Jonathan (Andrea), Christopher (Julie-anne), Jane, Ruth Ann, Cameron and Luke. Troy recently became a great uncle to little Nolan.

Troy lived his life fearlessly and lived every day to the fullest - he didn't waste a moment. He achieved a long held ambition when he co-published a book about the Hull family with his very best friend Kelly Leigh Martin.

To know Troy was to love him and he was loved by many. His much too early passing will leave a huge hole in the lives of so very many. He was incredibly passionate about his life, his family and his friends.

Cremation has taken place. There will be a future gathering to Celebrate Troy's Life at a time yet to be determined.

Memorial donations if desired may be made to Ed's House Hospice.

My life will never be the same. Troy has been my best friend for 22 years. We were each others rocks, shoulders to lean on, we were a true life Will and Grace. Always could depend on each other.

My deepest condolences goes out to all of Troy's family and friends. I was fortunate to meet Troy through Kelly Martin at a hockey game fundraiser. Within that one day, I felt like I just met someone I have known for years. With my wife and daughter present that day, whom are avid horse lovers, we shifted from hockey to horses and everything else in life. I don't remember the score of the game, but I will always remember Troy, and I am blessed to have met him. He was a true inspiration for us.
