Torrison, David – It is with profound sadness that Christine announces the passing of her cherished husband Dave at the age of 81 years. Dave passed away peacefully on Tuesday April 27, 2021 in the comfort of his home with Christine by his side.
Dave was born in Toronto to John & Lillian Torrison on February 21, 1940. At a young age, his family moved to California and Dave enlisted with the US Army and served as a Medic during the Vietnam War. The horrors of war left invisible scars Dave carried with him his entire life.
He returned to Canada and eventually made his way to Cobalt and then Haileybury where he was a long-time resident. In fact, Dave was the last resident of the famous Matabanick Hotel!
Dave was a long-time supporter and member of the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 54. He enjoyed spending time with friends at the Legion playing pool, darts & Bingo. He enjoyed the beauty of the area particularly watching the boats on Lake Temiskaming and the antique car shows at the Haileybury Waterfront. He enjoyed watching his beloved Boston Bruins and spending time with his “fur family” Sylvester and Patches.
Dave met Christine Townley in June, 2011 and the two of them were married on March 19, 2021 at a special ceremony at the Temiskaming Hospital.
Dave is survived by his wife Christine; his daughters Cindy and Marie; and many dear friends.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the Community Cancer Care/Biker’s Reunion would be greatly appreciated. Condolences and contributions may be left at www.buffamleveille.com.
