Obituary

1938-2019
John Estanislado Torres, Jr., passed away at Belen Meadows Nursing Home Tuesday, June 4, 2019, at the age of 81. He was born in Santa Fe, New Mexico, March 2,1938, to John E. Torres, Sr. and Lucile Long Bigbee Torres. John grew up in Santa Cruz, NM, and graduated from Espanola High School in 1957, where he was a member of the varsity football team and the marching band. John attended New Mexico Military Academy on a football scholarship and went on to Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado, where he earned a B.S. in Botany in 1962. While in college John worked summers for the National Park Service as a fire-control aide at Bandelier National Park. He served two years in the army with the 101st Airborne at Fort Campbell, Kentucky, where John trained as a paratrooper and medic. Fortunately his unit was not called into wartime service. He was first employed by the park service as an Interpretive Aide, at Tumacacori National Monument, Tubac, Arizona. John then moved to Santa Fe and worked as a chemist for the New Mexico Highway Department. After several years with the NMHD he resigned to build his own home and pursue personal hobbies, and alternative career possibilities. John worked swing shift at The Lamplighter (drive-in) Liquor Store in Santa Fe for many years. Among his many hobbies were music, wood carving, chili roasting, and welding, swimming, bicycling, canoeing and archery. John is survived by his sisters, Mary Catherine (Tina) Torres, Caroline R. Crooks, Christine C. Torres, Judith E. Torres; and brother, Joseph E. Torres. He is also survived by 6 nieces and nephews and 8 grand nieces and nephews. Plans are being made for a small, family gathering to spread his ashes. Arrangements are being handled by the caring professionals at the Noblin Funeral Service Belen Chapel, 418 W. Reinken Ave., (505)864-4448.

I’m so sorry for your loss. John will be missed. What has helped me in times like these is what Jesus said at John 11:25, “I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercises faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life.” I hope this will comfort you as it has me. If you need anyone to talk to, please feel free to reach out to me.
