CandlePrayers with all the family. May the strength of God's love be with your all. God called him home. It does not make it any easier for us on earth who will miss those hugs..kisses..special things he would do. Treasure all those memories. Laugh..cry..scream..dance and sing. He loved his family kids.grandkids. treasure that love and continue to share it with all. GOD give you peace and strength. Vanessa and Steve

“Torkie” provided laughs and dry humor that was a part of him. We shared those during and after my time in the navy. He & Paula were there for me, they were witness when I married Diana. Time was a short span but memories full of joy, friendship and respect. As often happens over time and miles away we drifted, but in my mind and heart they remain with us.
Prayers and comfort to families and our deepest sympathy.
