Troy G. Frampton passed away tragically and unexpectedly at the age of 60 on March 23, 2021 in West Valley City, Utah. Troy was born on September 12, 1960 to William Gerry and Judy Mitchell Frampton in Granger, Utah.

Troy spent 35 years with our loving mother, Gayle, until they recently decided to part ways in 2019. During their marriage they were blessed with two sons, Codey and Jeromy, who Troy adored. His life revolved around them and they could see the love in their dad’s eyes every time he looked at them and knew he was proud. Dad had a lot of love to share. Our friends all called him “Pa” and our best friend Zach was known as his third son. His love grew even more when his grandson, Hunter was born. They had a special bond and Hunter will always remember how wonderful his Pops was.

Troy’s passion for the outdoors was shared with his boys. He taught them to respect firearms, spread his skills in hunting, fishing, and fixing anything. He was proud to be able to purchase 40 acres up in Duchesne where he spent a lot of time upgrading the trailer to make it more like a home. We remember when he was excited to place solar lights down the pathway to the outhouse and when he installed a water heater in the trailer. This came quickly after our mom threatened that he would be in charge of washing all the dishes if he didn’t find a way to heat water up other than the stove. Another passion of his was NASCAR. Several years we would look forward going to Las Vegas for the truck races and NASCAR. He would count down the months until when the races would begin. We always knew when Daytona was scheduled, the feast was on. Smoked ribs, steaks, brisket, or a roast would be placed on his smoker along with all the fixings.

He was a transmission mechanic by trade, but could fix anything that had wheels and a motor. His love to tinker and fix anything came in handy many times when our friends needed help repairing their cars. Our dad was always the go to guy, and he found a way to get their cars running without fail while teaching them the knowledge he had as a mechanic.

With a witty sense of humor, he always was able to make us laugh. We never knew how much our dad had touched our lives until we had to put words down on paper. We will miss him, but we know he will always be with us in our heart and soul. We love you dad!

Survived by his sons, Codey and Jeromy and his grandson Hunter. Preceded in passing by his brother Corey and his best friend Robert Beebe.

A celebration of Troy’s life will be held on Friday, April 2, 2021 from 11 to 1 PM at the Chateau Greenhouse at The Rose Shop, 1910 E. Dimple Dell Road (10600 South) in Sandy. Casual or camouflage dress is requested as that is what Troy always wore himself. Due to COVID requirements, masks must be worn and social distancing will be needed when possible.


My condolences to the family. May the family find peace and new life and through it many blessings in celebration of life to Troy.

I worked with Troy for many years at Smith Power Products, and always got along well with him. He always had a smile on his face, and had a great sense of humor. I know how proud he was of his boys, wife and grandson.
He will be missed.
Thoughts and prayers go out to his family.

Gayle, Codey, and Jeromy,
I'm so sorry for the loss and grief you must bear. I loved Troy and being around him was always a good time. Although life got in the way and we didn't stay in touch or close as we once did, I have thought of your family often. I hope in time that the life you shared will ease the sorrow you have now. I saw the love and pride Troy had for all of you and I respected him for that. Love each other and lean on each other.
Bless you all,

- Doreen Bryant

I have not had the pleasure of meeting Troy’s fine sons but I my heart goes out to you and the rest of his family. May you always keep his memory close to your heart. To be that mechanical he had to take after Gary. May God bless you all.

Really sorry to hear about this, Troy was such a kind-hearted soul but gave you such good tough love that you would remember for the rest of your life. I'm so pleased I got many chances to be around the Framptons growing up and ill never forget the nickname Troy/Gayle gave me "Crash". My heart goes out to Codey/Jeromy/Gayle. -Derek
