Torres, Valentin

Valentine Torres, age 101, passed away peacefully in Belen in the early hours of Saturday, March 19th. He was born on August 11, 1914. A native of nearby Bacaville, he dedicated his life to law enforcement in Valencia County beginning as a member of the City of Belen Police Department and later a part of the Valencia County Sheriff's Department until his retirement. His symbolic warm and friendly smile became a trait in providing security to residence. In his youth, he was a big Yankee fan and played and coached many years of semi-pro ball in the area.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Piedad; son, Joseph Lawrence; daughter-in-law, Bernadette Torres; parents, Pedro and Virginia Torres; brothers, Ramon (Tiofila), Stanislado (Maria Catalina), Pedro (Cecilia), Jose (Helen); sisters, Margarita (Marcos) Ulibarri, Manuela Torres, Carlotta (Esaias) Bernal, Carmen (Chris) Sterr, and Maria Luz (Juan De Dios) Cordova. He is survived by his son, Steve C. Torrez and wife Eileen; three grandchildren, Renee Torres-Storey and husband Chris, Carlos and wife Rebecca, and Roberto and fiance Ashley Turcotte and daughter, Paisley, five great-grandchildren; Raquel and Chanelle Gallucci, Mariah Martinez, Gabriel and Christopher Torrez, and one great-great-granddaughter, Emilia Gallucci.

All services will be on Wednesday, March 30, 2016 at Our Lady of Belen Catholic Church. A visitation will begin at 10:30 a.m., with a rosary to be recited at 11:30 a.m., and a funeral mass to be celebrated at 12:00 p.m. Interment will follow at Our Lady of Belen Memorial Gardens. A sincere thank you to the outstanding staff at Belen Meadows, Dr. Roland Sanchez, Dr. Adolfo Sanchez, Dr. Joseph Aragon, Hospice nurses Jaime Baca and Erica Nelson for the loving care and assistance they provided Valentin, and Romero Funeral Home Rosalinda Ortiz and Dicky Romero for their excellent service.
