Troy Marzetta, 49


LINCOLN, R.I. – Troy David Marzetta, 49, of Lincoln, passed away unexpectedly on June 22. He was the loving husband of Amy (Pristawa) Marzetta and devoted father to Abigail and Nicholas Marzetta. Born April 11, 1972, son of Rhonda (Cantoff) Marzetta of East Providence and Alfred Marzetta of Blackstone, Massachusetts.

Troy was regional manager of Farmland Food for New England before becoming vice president of sales for 12 years for the Affinity Group in the New England area.

Troy especially enjoyed landscaping and beautifying his yard with unique plants and trees, fishing, vacations and travel, carpentry, and all sports, especially his fantasy football league. With his infectious smile and his inviting personality, it’s no wonder that his most precious moments were spending time with his family and bringing his friends together for many gatherings and special events.

He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army Military Police during the Persian Gulf War. In 1994 he was assigned to the Dutch detachment FMPO at south camp in the Sinai Peninsula. He was a 1998 graduate of the University of Rhode Island with a Bachelor of Science degree in business administration. He was a member of the fraternity Tau Kappa Epsilon and served as house father and made many lifelong friends.

Troy spent more than 10 enjoyable summers at Camp JORI in Wakefield as a camper, kitchen boy, and eventually becoming a camp counselor. His children are now following in his footsteps and love spending their summer at Camp JORI.

Left to cherish his memory, Troy is survived by his brother Jon Marzetta and his wife Debra of Rumford, stepmother Patricia Marzetta of Blackstone, two stepsisters, Laurie Peloquin of Millville, Massachusetts, and Cheryl Geoffroy of Cumberland. He was the son-in-law of Henry and Karen Pristawa of Woonsocket, and he had several nieces and nephews.

“Troy was one of those people who truly made the world a better place with him in it.”
