Albert Torro

d. May 22, 2018

Albert Torro passed away peacefully at his son Stevens home in Massachusetts on May 22, 2018. He had family by his side. Albert was born in Berlin, NH on February 23, 1925. He was the son of the late Dominic Torro and Nicolina (Dalphonse) Torro. Albert, at an early age, left school to join the Army. He served from May of 1943-January of 1946. He was sent to Fort Devens, in Ayer Massachusetts for his basic training. He then continued his training in Louisiana and Alabama. He was deployed to the Phillippines, Australia, New Guinea, and Japan. There were many nights he sat with his sons family around the table at the family home telling stories and answering questions about his time overseas. After his time serving his country, Albert went to work for The Brown Paper Company located in Berlin, NH from 1946-1987. His duties took place at the Cascade Mill in Cascade. He worked as a laborer helping with day to day operations of the mill. Albert then became a machine and press operator which brought him to different areas and departments in the mill. He was a great worker and was devoted to each job that was handed to him. In September of 1972, while working his shift, there was a terrible accident where Albert was badly injured, which resulted in the loss of his right leg. He was quickly surrounded by family. After a period of time spent at a Berlin hospital, he was transferred to a Boston hospital for his recovery and rehabilitation. There are so many fond memories and stories told by the family about their time in Boston. The worst time of their lives was turned into beautiful memories because of their love for Albert. After his accident Albert returned to work at the mill and retired in 1987. After his retirement, Albert spent his time with his family. He also enjoyed fixing anything and everything in and around their home. This included carpentry, plumbing, automotive work on his cars, etc. Many hours were spent in the basement in his work area. If anyone needed a "handyman", Albert was their first phone call. And he was there right away. Albert also enjoyed day trips with Simone and Steven anywhere and everywhere. This always included a picnic lunch made by his Simone and fond memories were remembered for years and years. Albert is predeceased by his beloved wife of 66 years, Simone (Perreault) Torro, as well as his son Roger Torro. Albert has also lost his sisters Catherine Morin, Theresa Landry, brother Joe Torro, and Fleury Torro, as well his his nephew David Landry and sister in law, Doris Perreault. Albert is survived by his devoted son Steven and wife Amy, of Tewksbury, MA, his daughters, Susan Demars and her husband Peter of Dover, NH., also Gesele Scully and her husband George, of Rye, NH. Albert has also left his loving sisters Dee Torro of Watertown, MA, Mary Savchick and Viola Roy of Berlin, NH. His granddaughters Brittany Simone, Alexis Lucia, Maura Sullivan and her husband Chris Sullivan, and Tyler Demars. Albert is also survived by Simones loving brother Benoit Perreault as well as his life partner of 17 years Bea Quesnel of Enfield, CT. His love for his "Little Girls", Brittany Simone and Alexis Lucia was unwavered. The time spent at the "Big Green House" were plentiful and the memories will never be forgotten. The hours spent fixing and building things, playing in the snow, trips to Walmart and his beloved Dollar Tree were suchunforgetable memories. The girls always loved hearing Memere and Pepere say, "whatever you want, just put it in the carriage." The stories of Maura and Tyler growing up were fun to listen to. Mauras fiesty personality and Tylers laid back personality were so different, but listening to Pepere tell his version of the events was very entertaining and so heartfelt. Albert is also survived by his first great-grandchild Patrick Peter Sullivan. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Saturday May 26, 2018 at 10 AM at St. Anne Church of Good Shepherd Parish. Interment will be in the St. Kieran Cemetery. Relatives and friends may call at the Bryant Funeral Home, 180 Hillside Ave., Berlin on Friday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 PM. Online guestbook at www.bryantfuneralhome.net.
