Obituary for Giovanni Torre

Giovanni Torre, 99, of Warminster, PA, passed away on August 28, 2018. He was the beloved husband of Maria Torre for nearly 70 years. Giovanni was born in New York, NY on February 11, 1919 to the late Andrea and Angelina (Cuneo) Torre. He was raised in Calvari, Italy where he met his future wife, Maria, and after World War II, they were married and decided to move back to the United States. They both settled in New York City to start a family and later moved to Long Island. He was proud to be an American even though his heart was in Italy. Giovanni was a simple, quiet, yet funny man. He was handy, always anxious to help others and enjoyed woodworking and working with electronics and cars. He also enjoyed music and strumming his guitar as a pastime. Sunday dinners with his family at high noon were his favorite. Along with his wife, he is survived by his two children: George Torre (Victoria) and Robert Torre (Susan); 5 grandchildren: Jennifer, Christopher, Andrew, Michael and Daniel; 2 great-grandchildren: Frankie and GiGi. He was predeceased by 2 sisters: Rose and Olga. Relatives and friends are invited to his Funeral Mass on September 4, 2018 at 11 AM at St. Anthony of Padua Church, 259 Forest Ave., Ambler, PA 19002.
