Andrew R. Torre, 91, of Stamford, passed away peacefully on July 21, 2022. Andrew was born in Larchmont, NY on June 21, 1931 to the late John and Juanita Farrell Torre.
“Buddy” as he was known to all was a loving husband, father, grandfather & uncle. He was known for his jokes (sometimes bad ones at that) and his infectious laughter. He was a modest man but when in a room full of people he was the life of the party. He served his country in the United States Army. He was an avid & die-hard New York Giants fan no matter how much they lost. He was also a self-taught musician. He could play the Ukulele, Organ, Guitar, and Harmonica. He will be missed by many.
Buddy is survived by his loving wife, for over 65 years, Carolyn Mancusi Torre, his daughter Patricia Ann Crowley of Milford, his son John Torre of Stamford and his beloved granddaughter, Christina Torre.
Besides his parents, Andrew is predeceased by his sister Evelyn Folz and son-in-law Russell Crowley.
