FADUM, Torgeir Bleken, Lt. Col, USAF
FADUM - Torgeir Bleken, Lt. Col., USAF, Retired Born November 11, 1923, left us suddenly on November 28, 2016 at the age of 93. Born in Niagara Falls, NY and long-time resident of Grand Island, NY, he spent the last four years residing in Stockton, CA. Torg to most, "Papou" to those closest to him, is survived by his 7 children, 13 grandchildren and two, plus one on-the-way, great grandchildren. Torg was pre-deceased by his wife of 64 years, Mary Anah (Cummings), affectionately known as "Mac" and even more affectionately as "Yia-Yia" - "She left us behind, but she left us with so much". Also, a special "shout out" to all those who served with him in the 107th Air Guard at Niagara and in Vietnam and, before that, to those he served with in World War II. In lieu of flowers, as a prostate and bone cancer survivor, Torg would prefer you go into CancerTutor.com and read about the Budwig protocol... Torg had passed on all conventional treatments and credits Budwig for the complete remission of his cancer that presented itself 15 years ago. In lieu of contributions, he would prefer you buy a bottle of flaxseed oil and get some yogurt or cottage cheese to go with it. Torg's final mission in life was to enlighten us all on the amazing ability of omega-3's to breathe new life into all of us... "Hubba, Hubba!" A memorial service for Yia-Yia and Papou will be held next August 2nd on Grand Island, NY.
