Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Johnny Paul Troutman, 85, of Gold Hill, passed away Saturday, October 9, 2021 at the NC State Veterans Home in Salisbury.
He was born August 22, 1936 in Concord, NC to the late Lewis Adam Troutman and Zula Burris Troutman. He proudly served in the United States Army. He worked most of his life as a mechanic and truck driver and retired from the Boral Brick Company – formerly Isenhour Brick and Tile. He was a member of the Rockwell Amvets Post 845.
In his spare time he enjoyed anything outdoors – fishing, boating, hunting, sports and the beach. He also loved spending time with his family and friends.
