Louis John Tortorelli

Tortorelli, Louis John

It is with deepest sadness and regret that we announce the passing of our precious husband, grandfather, father, brother and friend, Louis John Tortorelli, on May 22nd, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Louis was a long-time resident of the Comox Valley who worked in the forests on Vancouver Island for many years. He was active in sports and was a visible presence at the sporting events and dance performances of his children.

He leaves behind to mourn his passing his mother Florence; his beloved wife Pauline; daughters: Louise, Patricia (Tom) Wilson, Lisalyn Adamson, Alana (Mike) Collins; son Aaron (Sheri); grandchildren: Garrett, Jakob, Estella, Avory, Amber-Dawn, Tom, Arthur, and Louis; great-grandson Marcellis; sisters: Eva Patten, Sharon (Tom), Del (Joe); and brother George (Anne).

Lou was predeceased by his father John, and two brothers: John and Leonard.

The family greatfully declines flowers. Donations in Lou’s memory can be made to St. Joseph’s Hospital Foundation or the Comox Valley Recovery Center.

A private internment with family will take place.

Special thanks to:
