Mark "Anthony" Torres
Mark 'Anthony' Torres, 34, of Midland, Texas, went to be with his Heavenly Father on Saturday July 16, 2011, in Joplin, Missouri. He was born on October 1, 1976, to Alejandro and Cynthia Torrez in Houston, Texas. Anthony's passion was working with his hands, that led him into the construction industry as a machinist for most of his life, and was currently helping with the clean-up and repair of the aftermath of the recent tornado in Joplin, Missouri. Anthony was an excellent cook and loved to barbecue, listen to music, go dancing, and watch his favorite teams, the Houston Texans and the Houston Rockets, with his son, Xavier. He enjoyed nature and often talked about his mountain climbing experiences. Anthony was very proud of his garden. But most of all, he enjoyed spending time with his children and family. Anthony was the protector of the family. He was a member of the Family Faith Christian Center. Anthony was preceded in death by his brother, Steven Torres; his grandparents, Antonio and Frances Torrez; and his grandfather, Juan Polanco. He is survived by his two sons, Xavier Anthony Torres and Steven Torres, both of Midland; daughter, Vivian Torres, also of Midland; sister, Sandra Fiszer of Houston, Texas; and his parents, Alejandro and Cynthia Torrez of Midland. He is also survived by his niece, Alexandria Romero of San Jose, California; two nephews, John Macias and Jonathan Guilbeaux, both of Houston, Texas; and one great nephew, Julian Romero of San Jose, California; his grandmother, Ramona Polanco of Midland, Texas; and numerous uncles, aunts, and cousins. A prayer service will be held tonight at 7:00 p.m., at Lewallen-Garcia-Pipkin Chapel. Funeral service is set for Wednesday, July 20, 2011, at 11:00 a.m. at Lewallen-Garcia-Pipkin Chapel, with Pastor Bob Miller officiating. Interment will follow at Resthaven Memorial Park. Funeral services are under the direction of Lewallen-Garcia-Pipkin Funeral Home. Family messages and condolences may be emailed to: [email protected]

My deepest condolences to you Mr. and Mrs. Torres. I know this is a very difficult time and am very sorry for your loss. I only knew Anthony in his younger years when I was part of the family. I know he will be dearly missed but he is with our lord now. I pray that his children know that they have their father as their guardian angel. May he rest in peace.
