Fidencio “Freddie” G. Torres, 70, of Amarillo, Texas passed away peacefully July 11, 2022.
Freddie was born March 13, 1952, in Del Rio, Texas. He loved his Tejano music, dancing, and playing pool with family and friends. He was a practical joker with a generous heart of gold, never hesitating to help people out. Those around him were drawn to his infectious and ebullient personality. Freddie showed up when it mattered, always had your back and would defend and stand up for his loved ones should the need arise. He loved fiercely and deeply, and we take comfort in knowing that he is now at peace.
Freddie was preceded in death by his parents Fidencio A. Torres Sr. and Guadalupe Martinez; his sister Rosa Torres; his granddaughter, Ana “Nannie” Torres, and great granddaughters, Yessica Jasmine Zarate and Scarlett Rose Torres.
Left to cherish his memory are his step-father, Ruben Martinez; his sisters Teresa Torres and Alicia Galan; his ex-wife Mary Torres; their children Freddie and his wife Lydia; Roxanne and her husband Wally; Joel and his wife Angela; Salvador and Adelina; Irasema and her husband Javier; Jeremiah and his wife Monica; Isaiah and his wife Kelly; Isaac; step-son Benito and Kimberly; 32 grandchildren; 22 great-grandchildren, and many close friends who were like family to him.
There will be a Celebration of Life on Saturday, July 23, 2022, at 3:30 pm to honor him. The celebration will be at Alamo Community Center at 1502 S. Cleveland, Amarillo, Texas.
