George Torres

Passed Away On: March 20, 2022

It is with great sadness we announce the passing of George Valdez Torres, 59, on March 20, 2022.

George was born in Indio, California on October 18, 1962 to Octaviano and Modesta Torres. He married Martha Marquez in South Lake Tahoe on November 2, 1997.

He had a passion for cooking. You’d usually find him barbecuing at family functions. He enjoyed fishing, taking trips to the casinos with his wife, and spending time with his family and friends. These are the times that he cherished the most.

George’s absence leaves a tremendous loss in the lives of family members and many dear friends.

He worked very hard, sometimes simultaneously
working two jobs to provide for his family. He worked for Nob Hill for 22 years and as a cook for many years. He had recently retired.

He is survived by his wife, Martha Alicia Marquez and his eight children: Diana Jessica Torres, Leticia Ana Martinez, Leah Marie Torres, Christina Georgina Torres, Melissa Michelle Marquez, George Rafael Torres, Anthony Armando Torres, Yevette Valdez Torres and his 19 grandchildren and two great grandchildren.

He will be truly missed, but not forgotten by all that knew and loved him.

A memorial service for family and friends will be held at a future date.
