Obituary

Thomas Charles Torrisi 68, of Edgewater, Florida passed away on Saturday, January 15, 2022.

Thomas was born on September 27, 1953 to parents Salvatore Torrisi and Marilyn Ohrvall Torrisi.  He grew up and spent much of his life in New York, relocating to Florida in 2003.

Following in his father’s footsteps, Tom enjoyed a career for many years in the auto parts field where he made many close friends in New York and Florida.

Tom married Karol Hack in 1984, and they were married for 25 years. He honored his vows and selflessly took on the role of caregiver near the end of her life and her long battle with Multiple Sclerosis.

Tom has three daughters, whom he loved more than anything, Kara, Jennifer and Amanda and was over the moon for his six grandchildren, Kayla, Colin, Evan, Jake, Eli and Emily.  He was a caring and attentive husband, father and grandfather.

Tom was loved by so many for his kindness and easy-going attitude. He always had a smile on his face and the simple pleasures in life brought great joy to him.

Tom found happiness in spending days at the beach, fishing, golfing, bowling, and most of all spending time with his family. He would never pass up an opportunity to go to the amusement park and ride the roller coasters with his children and grandchildren.  He loved to cook and share his food at family gatherings.  He loved listening to music, especially classic rock, watching sports, and although he relocated to Florida, he remained a loyal fan to his favorite New York sports teams, the Yankees and the Giants.

Tom is preceded in death by his wife Karol Hack Torrisi, his brothers Vincent and John, and parents Salvatore and Marilyn.

Tom is survived by his daughters, Kara, Jennifer and Amanda, his sisters Carmela Roberts and Marilyn Patrick, brothers Anthony and Salvatore, and their families, as well as his grandchildren, and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Tom will be greatly missed, and forever loved by all who knew him.

Services will be held Saturday, February 5th from 10:00 am – 12:00 pm at the Baldwin Funeral Home. 1 North Causeway, New Smyrna Beach Florida 32169.

    How do I even begin to tell you all about my dad? I guess my first ever memory of him was when he was "dad-sitting" while my mom was at work and he accidentally shut my finger in a window. Fun times! Mom. Was. Pissed. My second memory is when I was 5 and he was videotaping me dancing in the dining room to Queen's The Invisible Man, and I did a cute little spin - right in to the wall. You can see him on the tape running over to console me with a stick of Doublemint gum (ol' reliable) to get me to stop crying.

    He was the BEST girl-dad. He put up with quite a bit over the years. Moodiness, bad hair days, periods... and boyfriends. Between the three of us, there were a lot of those!

    I'll never put a worm on a hook or eat a meatball sub without thinking of him. I'll never watch a Yankee game or see a Giants win without wanting to text him my play-by-play reaction. I'll never listen to Led Zeppelin or The Smashing Pumpkins without his silly dance moves flashing across my mind's eye. I'll never use my pots and pans, my kitchen knives or my mixing bowls (all of which he has gifted me over the years) without wishing he was there to eat what I'm cooking. I haven't even thought about what I'm going to do the next time my car makes a weird noise..

    I hate that my kids' memories of him end now. He had so much more love to give to them. So much more to teach them, life lessons to instill, team loyalty to solidify...
    I'm grateful they got to meet him and spend time with him, and I'm hopeful that he's with Mom now, filling her in on what she missed and telling her all about how awesome they all are in their own ways, and how proud he is of his girls.

    I miss him now, and I'll miss him always.
