Dear Hank, I am the g.grandson of Patrick Tormey for whom the town was named. My family members told me that the town was built by another entity, possibly the oil company and named in his honor. Patrick Tormey did, however found the town of Rodeo to contain a meat packing plant he was building. Everything fell apart during the S.F. earthquake and the real estate collapse, but he still is credited as the founder. Sincerely, Patrick B. Tormey
