Fidencio “Freddie” G. Torres

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.

    Such a loss, Freddie you will be missed by many. You are with so many loved ones including your primo Harvey as he left to be with The Lord recently and that gives me great comfort that y’all are together. So sorry for loss.

    Uncle Freddy was an amazing individual, always so full of life. I have been blessed throughout my life to have him apart of my family. I have so many beautiful memories with Him and of him, my greatest is when he lived in Chicago we went to visit , he came to see us at the motel and said are y’all Texans ready to party .. He sure had his way of making you feel welcomed! Lol !! He was my cousin but always an uncle to me . And will forever have that place in my heart .Anytime we saw each other he always referred to me as one of his favorite nieces .. I would laugh and say yes Tio do you say that to all your nieces .. but I’ll take it … uncle Fred was a wonderful man and definitely had a heart of gold . And will forever hold a special place in the heart and memories of many , Him and my dad (Enrique “Henry” Torres ) were brothers at heart. He will be deeply missed and my heart goes out to all of my cousins . With Love Michelle Torres- Mendoza and family.

    I was raised by my grandparents and always admired the 2 parent families and always wanted a large family when I got married, so when I did get married I would see mary and freddie with their beautiful children in church, Mary on one side of the Pew and freddie on the other with all their children in the middle. Always admired them, such beautiful memories. May you rest in peace freddie.
