February 25, 1918 – May 7, 2013
Arnold, beloved husband of the late Eileen Marion Torgerson (nee Gibson), formerly of Keeler and Moose Jaw, passed away peacefully on May 7, 2013 at the age of 95 years at the Colonel Belcher Care Facility in Calgary, AB.
Dad was born in Eskbank and later farmed for many years in the Keeler district. He was a Councilman and Reeve of the municipality. Many will remember him best for his years of playing the fiddle with the “Mortlach Fiddlers”. Dad will be dearly missed by his family and friends.
Left to mourn his passing are his children, Tracy Torgerson, Dianne (Jack) Averill, Jill Torgerson and daughter-in-law Susan Torgerson; grandchildren Kurtis (Tania) Averill, Sean (Rebbeca) Torgerson, Jay (Lizanne) Averill and Monica Torgerson; and his 5 great- granddaughters Kiana, Samantha, Sophie, Brooke and Vanessa.
He was predeceased by his wife of 70 years Eileen Torgerson (nee Gibson), and his parents Arthur and Violette Torgerson; brother Elmer Torgerson.
A celebration of Arnold’s life will be held at a later date in Moose Jaw. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
