Charles "Chuck" Torok

March 24, 1938 — August 14, 2020

Charles "Chuck" A. Torok, 82, passed away peacefully on Friday evening August 14, 2020 in his home under the care of Hospice of the Western Reserve, with his wife, son Karl and daughters Leslie and Susan by his side.

He was born in Andover, Ohio on March 24, 1938 the son of Elmer and Lois (Johnson) Torok.

Chuck graduated from Andover High School in 1956.  He enlisted in the United States Marine Corp and very proudly served his country.  Following his honorable discharge from the Marines he went on to college in Florida and received his degree in electronics engineering and computer technology.

On May 6, 1961 he married Ethel D. Russell, the love of his life and his loyal and devoted wife of the past 59 years.

Chuck was a meat cutter in the grocery business for over 40 years.  He enjoyed woodworking, the outdoors and was an avid reader.  But first and foremost the greatest source of pride and happiness in his life came from his family; his wife, children and grandchildren were his reason for living.

He is survived by his loving family: his wife Ethel; his children: Karl Torok, Leslie (Virgilio) Cabilin, Scott Torok, James (Tami) Torok, Susan (Erik) Kirby and Karen (Matt) Reed; 7 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren and his brother Jim (Renata) Torok.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Elmer.

Graveside funeral services will be held on Monday August 17, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at Maple Grove Cemetery, 137 Orchard Street, Andover.  Military honors will be observed.  Memorial contributions can be made in his name to Hospice of the Western Reserve if so desired.
