Michael William Torma, of McKinney, Texas, passed away surrounded by his loving family on March 31, 2022, at 3:28p.m. after complications of receiving the blessing of a triple organ transplant of heart, liver, and kidneys.

Mike was born on October 15, 1974, in Robbinsdale, Minnesota. He spent his early years in the northern part of Minnesota, Menahga, and then, later moved to the northern part of the twin cities, Baine, Minnesota, where he graduated high school in 1993. Mike exceled at academics and athletics. He graduated with honors and with several athletic awards. All the while, growing a garage door company, A-1 Garage Doors, Inc., with his brother. Shortly after high school, Mike met his match and love, Amanda McInnes. The two were married on July 20, 1996, and soon started their family. Soon after, he attended National American University and William Mitchell School of Law. Mike would continue to excel at his amazing skills of business development, marketing, construction, and corporate law and being a business consultant and advisor to many businesses. After successfully selling A-1 Garage Doors, Inc., he decided to move to Texas and work with another Garage Door Company, Action Garage Doors of Texas, where he hung his hat till the day he passed.

After health issues arose, Michael and his family, started a long journey of hospital visits, surgeries, and many other fun aspects of his health challenge. During all this, Mike never lost faith and rested on his faith more and more each day. He knew that God was in complete control and was guiding his footsteps. During the last couple of weeks of his life, he stated, “I know I am not walking this path anymore, God has been carrying me for a while now! I am so tired, and God knows I need His help!” Mike had peace and understanding of whatever the outcome of his transplants would be. He knew his life was living for God’s will and purpose.

He had several hobbies over the years…...Sharing his love for fishing and hunting with his boys and to survive with the skills taught during those seasons, golfing with friends and family, coaching many kids on the ice rink and on the football field, and motivating others to be their absolute best, in life and in business. Mike was a person that loved to motivate others and lift them up, showing them they were more than enough and capable of achieving anything or any goal they could set. As well as, sharing his love for food by cooking and grilling!! He would share his food with anyone. Mike’s competitive nature made him excel at even cooking and he was very talented at it!  Anyone would tell you that his steaks are the best around and he ruined their taste for any others!! But most of all, his true passion and love was his wife of almost 26 years, Amanda, and their three sons, Larry, Alic, and Tristin. Any time spent, whether it was cooking, hunting, fishing, or even the simple conversation, mostly of sports and analytics of sports, coaching and playing hockey, or simply playing video games and showing his competitive nature with them in more than a few ways. Or going to Saturday morning breakfast and grocery dates with Amanda. Or just relaxing and watching movies or going to any sports events together. Anything that was spending time with them is what mattered to him most.

Michael is survived by his wife, Amanda Torma of McKinney, Texas; their three sons, Larry (Chyenne) of Kileen, Texas, Alic (Emily) and Tristin of McKinney, Texas; parents, Jerry Duane Torma and Patricia Louis (Johnson) Torma of Menahga, Minnesota; brothers, Joseph Torma and wife, Dawn, of Centerville, Minnesota, and Andrew Torma and wife, Ammie of Royalton, Minnesota; in-laws, C.

Juanita monroe, April 19, 2022 Dear Family, I am happy to share my fond memories of Mike. He was a blessing to everyone that knew him. He was quick with a smile. He always had a positive message. He shared his faith with all of us. His gift was encouraging others to excellence. Mike would encourage each of us to rest in God's peace. He did not fear because he walked with the Lord. Though Mike's journey has ended, his example can remain. We can encourage others as he encouraged us. He will be missed. Tammy Richardson, April 19, 2022
