Our beloved Ruben J Torres succumbed to Alzheimers and passed away peacefully under the loving, devoted care of his wife Julia and his daughter Maricella at home. Grateful for the compassionate guidance of Bristol Hospice toward the end. His final days were spent surrounded by family and friends. He was a true believer in all people, a proud Marine, a great storyteller, The life of the party. He loved dancing, playing cards with his family and friends and taking trips without an itinerary. His jovial personality will be greatly missed. Ruben is preceded in death by his parents Felipe and Margaret Torres, brother Johnny, sister Alice Duran and youngest son Elias M Torres. Ruben is survived by his wife of over 51 years Julia, Son Ruben Jr (Kim), daughters Victoria Mott (Richard), Maricella Torres and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. A funeral mass will be held on Monday May 21, 2018 at St. Robert's Catholic Church 2243 Irvin Way, Sacramento CA at 11 am. In Lieu of flowers , memorial contributions to Bristol Hospice Sacramento or the Alzheimers Foundation are greatly appreciated.
