TORSIELLO, RONALD Ronald Joseph Torsiello age 76, ended his battle with cancer, peacefully, surrounded by family, on Sunday, October 26th. Ron was born in Irvington, New Jersey and moved his family to New Mexico in 1978. He is survived by his beloved wife of 52 years, Norma; son Joseph; daughter-in-law Kristina; brother Kenneth; cousin Tommy; their families; and an unbelievable group of special, kind and fun loving friends. Ron is a US Navy Veteran, is a member of the American Legion Post 49 and the Local 32 Asbestos Workers Union. Ron had 16 years of retirement and he enjoyed traveling and could be found telling tall stories about his travels to San Francisco, Hawaii, Mexico, Florida, Las Vegas (that is where the biggest tales came from), New Jersey, New York and his last and most memorable trip to Italy, the home of his ancestors. He loved golf and sports and was an avid supporter of the NY Yankees, Giants, Rangers and Knicks. We consider him one of the Greatest Generation, a special and diminishing breed - hard-nosed, straight forward and no nonsense. Ron's wish was to hold a celebration with family and friends at the Post 49 when his time to leave our sides arrived. Ron's celebration and service will be held at the American Legion Post 49 on Sunday, November 2 at 1:00 pm. The address is 11005 Central Ave. NE, Alb., New Mexico, 87123. In lieu of flowers, the family would like friends and family to consider making a donation in his honor to the Post 49.
