I send my sincere condolences to his family. Wade had gone to school with me since Broadview.

I offer my sympathy at this time for Wade's family and close friends. It is never an easy time for everyone concerned. My heartfelt condolences. I did not know him until I transferred from Christ the King Elementary. He was a very smart guy as I remember and he will be a great loss to the community. .

I'm saddened to see this news. I hadn't seen Wade since high school prior to the reunion. But, way back in junior high school we were in band together (2/3s of the trombone section), Boy Scouts (too many hikes in the rain) and had some good times. My condolences go out to his family.

 I was sad to hear of Wade's passing. I was in Kindergarden with him, cub scouts, he grew up 6 blocks from me and although in recent years we didn't connect at all. I remember him as a Great guy! Loved sports, the outdoors and we even hooked on F.B. a couple years ago. My heart & prayers go out to his family, life indeed is way too short. He will be missed. As Scott Nolte said we go back a long way & that way was good.....

In recent years Wade and I intereacted on Facebook and some direct emails about outdoor cooking. He always gave me shit in grade school and junior high...I liked that about him. This was very sad news.

To Wade's family,

I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember Wade from Ingraham but got to know him much better at Stevens Pass Resort where we both worked. He was always happy and smiling at everyone he met. I was hoping I'd see him again at work one of these years. Best to you during these difficult times.

Seems difficult at times to see friends from your past go away. Like many who have also responded I knew Wade from scouting and band. He lived just a block away and on occasion we walked home together from Broadview and Thomson Jr. Hi.  I think many would remember him for his flipped remarks towards others. Not necessarily bullying but done is away to seek your friendship and to be funny. A kind of Don Rickels in a smaller package.

Wade was a riot and a real nice guy.

It is with great sadness that I share the news of the loss of your classmate and friend, E. Wade Torsey. Wade, tragically, passed away in a car accident on November 17th. I take comfort in being told that he did not suffer.

Wade was a uniquely funny, easy going and likeable guy. Very friendly to all. He loved his family, his Mom Joann, sister Jan and husband Frank (Kearns), and brother Scott. 

He was cool to be around. He loved to ski, sail, and especially enjoyed playing tennis with his life long good friend, Howard Hoff.

His loss will be felt by many, but none more than myself. Rest in peace dear Wade. You will be greatly missed. With love, Bonnie Mee

Please join Wade's family, friends, and I, at a celebration of his life on January 27th. 2017, between 2-4, at the Nile Country Club, located at 6601 244th. St. SW in Mountlake Terrace, Wa.
