Frank John Torrigiani Obituary
Frank John Torrigiani December 20, 1924 - November 23, 2013 Frank was born in Bakersfield on December 20, 1924 to Algonte and Ranie Torrigiani. He was preceded in death by his father and mother and loving wife Edna. Our beloved father, grandfather and great grandfather passed away peacefully November 23, 2013. Frank was educated at Buttonwillow Elementary and Kern County High School. There was not a day that you might drive on Hwy 58, that you would not see Frank on one of his tractors making a ditch or just stirring up dirt. He was a man who loved what he did, and did it well. The name Frank Torrigiani is synonymous with a great cotton farmer. In his youth until middle age he enjoyed golfing, a game of tennis, bowling and cards with his beloved wife Edna. A special place in his heart was held for viewing any and all sports that his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren played. He was a fan of his family! Farming was something he enjoyed, in his early years with his father and brother. Up until his passing he farmed with his brother Arthur Torrigiani in Buttonwillow. The legacy he leaves behind are his five children, Toni Allmon (Cliff), Kenneth (Jean), Francine Torrigiani, Frank Torrigiani (Leslie) and Bridget Torrigiani, nine grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren. He will be missed, but never forgotten. Happiness is having a father you are proud of; someone you not only love and respect! A Memorial Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 10:00 a.m. on Tuesday, December 3, 2013 at St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Amanda Torrigiani for the unconditional love and care she gave our father, and to Optimal Hospice for the wonderful care and concern shown not only to Frank but to his family.
