James Torgey ‘Torg’ Lindberg Sr., 63

James Torgey “Torg” Lindberg Sr. died Jan. 20, 2009 at Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton. Torg was born to Urban and Myrtle Lindberg on Nov. 13, 1945.

Torg was born and raised in Silverdale. In his early years, he served in the Army in Vietnam and was a member of the Vietnam class of 1967-68. Torg retired in January 2003 from Keyport as a torpedo tech with 36 years.

Torg could be seen most mornings walking around Old Town Silverdale. He was very much a “family man” — who was very proud of his boys, Torgey and Jon — spending time with his granddaughter Hanna and relaxing with Sue, his wife of 39 years, in Hawaii.

Torg loved spending time at home, working on projects around the house, landscaping his yard and working on his ’36 Ford hot-rod pickup. Torg also loved helping others and spending time with his brother and sisters-in-law and his beloved nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his father.

Torg is survived by his wife Sue; his mother Myrtle Radovich of Bremerton; sons, Torgey (Shannon) Lindberg Jr. of Tacoma and Jon (Sara) Lindberg of Bremerton; granddaughter Hanna Lindberg; and sister Gayle Wells of Silverdale.

A celebration of life is at 2 p.m. tomorrow, Saturday, Jan. 31 at Sylvan Way Baptist Church, located at 900 Sylvan Way in Bremerton.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the donor’s choice. An online guestbook is available at
