Torney MichaelTORNEY, Michael Ralph "Smiley"  -  With heavy hearts we share the passing of Michael Ralph Torney 'Smiley.'

Mike passed away on July 13, 2021 at the age of 53.

He is survived by loving family and friends who cared deeply for him including his wife, Korene, and young daughters Lauren and Julia; sisters Louisa Gamoyda (Steve), Beth Wood; brother Allan Torney (Debbie); his wife's family; and many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and 2 grandmothers.

He was predeceased by his parents Ruth and Ralph Torney.

Mike loved to explore and his career took him throughout the Americas from NWT and Alaska to Ecuador and Brazil) where he always joined in local traditions (AK Sourtoe, NL screech, Brazilian caipirinha).

Mike will forever be remembered for his bright smile, hearty laugh, warm heart, and his ability to make and sustain friendships wherever he went.

Mike was unique, his heart had room for all of us, and we will miss him beyond words.

In September we will hold two celebrations of life (Victoria, BC and Scarborough, ON). We'll post celebration details at
