Torrey left this world on April 16th, at home in Fairfield, Iowa. His wife, Linda, nearby. I'm thankful for a lifetime friendship and a long list of memories too. 

When memorial services are made available, I'll notify our Class of 64 site. 

Rest In Peace old friend, and know you are loved and missed. CJ

I'm so sorry to hear of Torrey's passing.  I have so many memories of fun times together.  He was a good friend and a good person.

I enjoyed reading about Torrey's lifelong interest in poetry, Buddhism and Sufi studies. I would have enjoyed having long conversations with him about these subjects. I remember Torrey as a friendly classmate with a warm and lovely smile. Rest gently, Torrey. Peace to you and your family

My earliest experience with motorized toys was with Torrey in the late 50's- he got a go cart which seemed so much fun- racing around low to the ground. My parents were against the idea, but I still lusted after that speedy feeling, so I thought I would build my own! That idea was still born, no place to do it! But I got a Doodlebug scooter which I fixed up for quietly cruising. Then I got caught one night, underage, driving without lights, Harvey Allison was on the back! I lost track of Torrey when the expanding family moved to a newer house, leaving Lakeview Drive behind. But my motoring lust never left, still building things for fun & speed. Thanks Torrey for setting my heart's course in the proper direction! RIP
