Gregory Paul Thorstenson, 64, passed away peacefully in Whittier on July 16, 2018 after battling chronic pain for the past two years. Greg was born on January 2, 1954 in Lynwood, California to his late parents Dyke and Lee Thorstenson of Whittier. In 1978, Greg married the love of his life, Sandy (Sanchez) Thorstenson, and was a devoted Dad/Mr. Mom to Timari, and brother to Kathy Erickson and Kim Thorstenson-Root. He will be cherished and loved forever by additional family, including Butch and Virginia Sanchez, Gilbert Sanchez, Eva Sanchez, many nieces and nephews, and great nieces and nephews who loved him dearly.
Greg was a masterful landscape architect who left all the spaces in Southern California he touched immensely the better and more beautiful. Greg will also be remembered by numerous friends for his more-than-generous, honest, caring friendship and love. He influenced many lives and will be greatly missed.
