A mem­ber of St. Teresa of Avila Church, W. Nor­ri­ton, he en­joyed spend­ing time with his fam­ily at his hunt­ing cabin in Tioga County and his daugh­ter’s fam­ily farm in Get­tys­burg. He was an avid out­doors­man, fish­er­man, and tal­ented wood carv­ing wildlife artist.

He will be sorely missed by his sis­ters and brother in laws: Bernie Sil­vestre, Rose­marie and C.T. (Tony) An­thony, Cathy Tor­netta and an ex­tended fam­ily of nieces and neph­ews.

In ad­di­tion to his par­ents, he was pre­ceded in death by sib­lings Ge­orge and Bar­bara Tor­netta.

The fam­ily will re­ceive rel­a­tives and friends on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 10, 2018, from 8:30 9:45 am, at St. Teresa of Avila Church, 1260 So. Trooper Road, W. Nor­ri­ton, PA. His Me­mo­rial Mass will fol­low at 10 am. En­tomb­ment of his urn will be in St. Pa­trick’s Ceme­tery Mau­soleum, East Nor­ri­ton, PA.
