David Vance Torrans was born on Sunday, February 13, 1938 in McLeod, TX. and passed away Friday, March 12, 2021 in Baton Rouge, LA.

David was in the military Air Force Army National Guard from 1955-1962. He joined the Mississippi Boxing Association and was a Heavyweight Golden Glove Boxer in the 60's. He was known for his great big muscles and large hands and how we could drop a quarter through his rings. He was A 32-degree Mason and coached Dixie Youth baseball in Ferriday. David moved up in the oilfield industry as a Rig Superintendent and a Drilling Consultant traveling and living all over the world from South East Asia, Brazil, and Saudi to name a few. Through the years, he continued his education through La State University completing numerous petroleum and safety classes. He was an avid carpenter and later obtained his Real Estate license in Oklahoma and built a salvage yard and wrecker service. David was kind to all and loved to tell stories of his travels. He often cared for the orphans in the jungles of Asia and would bring them treats from afar. David was a family-oriented workaholic, and great dancer. He was the best brother and loved his siblings dearly. David always stayed close with them all their lives! His grandchildren were his passion! He has left everyone with so many good memories!

He is preceded in death by his parents, Albert Wesley Torrans and Ruby Squyres Torrans; daughter, Sonya Torrans; two brothers- Dale Torrans and Jimmy Torrans; four sisters- Louise Dalrymple, Betty Zane Warner, Onnie Lodell Odom and Iva Paige Fritz-Lester; and son-in-law, Gerard Donald.
