Torin V. Johnson was born February 22, 1994 in Sumter to Verlyn W. Johnson and the late Mary Sharpe Johnson.

Torin was a 2012 graduate of Crestwood High School and was employed with International Paper. He was a member of St. James Holiness Church, where he served with the Men’s Auxiliary and the Adult Usher Board.

Torin had a great love for his family and friends and, in turn, was greatly loved by them. People were drawn to his personality and smile. Those who knew him described him as kind, respectful, caring, and mannerable. He was a young man with a humble laughter. In his spare time he enjoyed fishing and hunting.

In addition to his mother, Torin was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Solomon and Mary Gadson Johnson and his maternal grandfather, Jessie James.
