His Eminence the Most Reverend Tikhon (Troitsky) of San Francisco was the ROCOR Archbishop of San Francisco and Western America during the 1940s to the 1960s.

He was one of the bishops who remained with the ROCOR during the schism with the Russian-American Metropolia in 1946. The American bishops voted four out of nine to leave the ROCOR at the Cleveland Sobor. Five remained with the Church Abroad, four left to head the independent Metropolia.

Tikhon was succeeded in the see of San Francisco by St. John Maximovitch in 1962. He is buried at Holy Trinity Monastery (Jordanville, New York).
