On April 10, 2024, Freddy peacefully passed away surrounded by his loving family at the age of 67.

Born on July 26, 1956, in Socorro, NM to Antonia Avalos Torres and Freddy Torres Sr. He was preceded in death by his parents, grandparents, brothers Eddie, Pete and Anthony and his

sisters Alice, Susanna, Idalynn, Katie and Sister-in-law Rona.

Freddy married his wife Ramona on May 29th, 1982, they had four children, Cindy, Christopher, Randy and Roxanne. He is also survived by his 13 grandchildren and 3 great grandchildren whom he loved with all his heart. Also survived by his sisters Mary and husband Arturo,

Freddy was a grumpy man at times, but he was a man who would give you the shirt off his back. He made a living doing Stucco work and other various jobs. He was really good at his work.

Sometimes he was also known as a "Taxi driver" because every time someone needed a ride there he was driving them somewhere. He would get mad and complain that they would not put gas in his car however he would always do it anyway. He also loved to have his Matanzas every year which everyone looked forward to. He would complain about the way people would cut the meat and also the seasoning of the meat, it was never right for him. He occasionally did not even cut the meat but would boss the people around. He wanted everything to be his way or no way. His famous saying was, "It's my way or the highway".

Freddy was also known to be the shopper for the family. He was the one who would do all the grocery shopping. Ida would give him a list and there he was off to the store and he knew where all the sales were at. He was a San Francisco 49ers fan, every NFL season there he was watching his 49er games. He would take a lot of smack talk from family members who are Cowboy fans but he would stand his ground with his 49ers whether they won or lost.

Freddy had his wife very spoiled. Anything she needed he would get it for her sometimes she would leave her purse in the trailer and there he goes to get it. He would make her breakfast and have her Coke there ready to eat.

He also had his great granddaughter Lilianna who would always take pictures of them doing crazy things. He would play with her and they had so much fun together she and his other great grandkids and grandkids were the love of his life. He had his favorites in the family too and you know who you are!

Freddy was a great man, husband, brother, father, grandfather and Uncle, he will be missed by

all. Rest in Peace, you grumpy old man.

We love you!!!
