Garry Theodore passed away on December 7, 2012 at the age of 57. Survived by his mother Roberta Torgerson, nieces Christy Myndzak and Fawn Williams and nephew Richard Allan Torgerson. Sadly predeceased by his father Theodore Osmand Torgerson, brother Bryon Torgerson and sister Sharon Myndzak.
Garry or “Torgy” as he was affectionately known by all, leaves behind a wide circle of friends, some of which had the honour of calling him family. Whether it be on the slo-pitch field, the golf course, the pool hall, the race track, or in years past, the glass plant, Torgy was a warrior, a Latvian wardog. His work ethic and his willingness to help when needed was second to none. He loved his sports and anything that he could wager on!
He has touched many in this community and will be sadly and deeply missed. We love you Torgy and know that you will be shining down on us and keeping us all in line!
A Celebration of Life will take place for Torgy early in the new year, a further announcement will provide details. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the BC Heart & Stroke Foundation, #4 – 1551 Sutherland Ave., Kelowna, BC V1Y 9M9.
