Former Asheboro Mayor Joe Trogdon

ASHEBORO, N.C. — Former Asheboro Mayor Joe Trogdon died Thursday at the Randolph Hospice House at 80 years old.

The Asheboro Courier-Tribune reported that Trogdon was a highly-respected Asheboro native with a career in public office spanning decades.

Trogdon first took a seat on the city planning board in 1964. He also served 10 years in the city council and served as mayor from 1983-2001.

Flags on all Asheboro city facilities will fly at half-mast throughout the weekend in his honor.

“We lost a good one, not only a good city servant but a good person,” said Asheboro Mayor David Smith, according to the Asheboro Courier-Tribune. “Joe had many, many friends and we’ll all miss him.”
