"You didn't exactly deprive yourself."
"No, but my life was too short."
Torias had something of a carefree attitude about life, indulging in simple pleasures. (DS9: "Facets") He had quite extensive battle experience. (DS9: "The Siege of AR-558") After marrying Nilani, he often remarked to her that she worried too much about him during his piloting. (DS9: "Rejoined")
However, before he had been joined for a full year, he was killed in a shuttlecraft accident in 2285. He was testing a shuttle's impulse engine prematurely, though he judged the risk was not great enough to wait. Despite Nilani's concerns, he executed the test. Dax would remember Torias' regret of not listening to her. (DS9: "Rejoined", "Equilibrium", "Afterimage")
The Dax symbiont was then transferred to a new host, Joran Belar, however, because of the nature of Belar's experience with the symbiont over the next six months, the Trill Symbiosis Commission changed the records to indicate that Torias remained comatose for that time before he died in 2286. (DS9: "Rejoined", "Equilibrium", "Afterimage")
