Dr. Troy Manz Memorial Fund
Benefitting the priority physician needs of the Southwestern Internal Medicine Residency Clinic at Ascension St. Vincent Evansville

It is with a very heavy heart that we announce the passing of Troy D. Manz, MD, RRT, on Sunday February 28, 2021, after a tragic bicycle accident in Florida. 

Troy’s life was truly dedicated to serving others.  Following eight years of active duty in the United States Marine Corps, he trained as a Respiratory Therapist, serving with the US Air Force Critical Care Transport Team.  He then set his sights on becoming a physician while continuing as an active member of the 126th Medical Group Air National Guard, where he earned the rank of captain. 

Upon graduation from the University of Kansas School of Medicine, Troy joined the inaugural class of the Southwest Indiana Internal Medicine Residency Program at Ascension St. Vincent Evansville, Good Samaritan Hospital, and through the Indiana University School of Medicine.  Troy was highly regarded as a leader and role model within his residency class.

“It was an honor to work with Dr. Manz, who was trusted and admired by his fellow residents,” said Robert Ficalora, MD, Program Director of the Southwest Indiana Internal Medicine Residency. “He was an amazing force of life. From flying the injured out of Afghanistan, service in the Air National Guard, or caring for his patients, he was about service above self. Our only solace lies in that he died doing something that he loved.”

The loss of Troy leaves a hole in our residency and our Ascension St. Vincent family.  Our prayers and condolences go out to Troy’s fiancé, family, friends and residency classmates. A fund has been established with Ascension St. Vincent Evansville Foundation in Troy’s honor to benefit the residency of which he was such an integral part.
