TORNEY, Terrence 71, died Jan. 13, 2014. Born June 18, 1942 in Port Arthur, TX, then moved to New York when he was young. He joined the U.S. Marine Corps and served from 1959-1963. Working in the construction industry his whole life was very fulfilling and allowed him to make many life long friends.

He was especially happy with his work in the Catholic mission in Tanzania, East Africa which he visited many times. His work there included the building of an orphanage in honor of his mother. Blessed with a great sense of humor, he will be remembered for his story telling ability which tested the limits of credibility & often exceeded them. He enjoyed a rich and full life and will be missed by his family and friends. A memorial service will be held at Dobies Funeral Home in Tarpon Springs on Friday Jan. 24 from 5-7 pm.
