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 [[OCA|Russian-American Metropolia]] in 1946.  The American bishops voted four out of nine to leave the ROCOR at the [[All-American Sobor#Seventh All-American Sobor|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)]].
