Mark Torres Obituary

Mark Patrick Torres, became a citizen of heaven on March 3rd 2024; Mark Patrick a beloved son to the late Benny Avila & Mary Larios Torres, and the youngest brother to the late Michael Torres;  A Santa Clara High School Graduate, Class of 1990.  He was named Mark Patrick after the great Saint Patrick of Ireland. 

Mark held no official title as an artist but he was very much an artist, a self taught pianist and creative writer.  He loved music and absolutely knew the Beatles was the best band to ever live. He knew a good movie, he knew how to write and how to solve trigonometry equations.  He enjoyed board/card games and he was the worst-loser; but losing a game was far and long and the reason those games lasted for days.

Mom put Mark in a computer class at the local community college in 7th/8th grade because he was interested in learning more about computers & coding.  In High School he took all honors classes and said that he would keep going to school until he figured out what he wanted to be.  In those early years, he worked hard as a CNC Machinist programmer and operator, at a local machine shop. He was known as Rich Uncle Mark and at Christmas would gift us with generous gift certificates for May-Company, and when mom really wanted a camping trailer he bought it for her. His life took a very different, difficult and heart-wrenching turn, in his mid-to-late twenties;

In his own struggles he befriended the lost and lonely; He brought these people to mom’s & dad’s home knowing they would be treated charitably.

Mark was born into a large family with brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews and many brother-cousins. He is predeceased in death by too many of our beloveds; the heavenly picnic table is welcoming, loving and a beautiful place and “Mother Mary will come speaking words of wisdom”.  Rest in God’s love, in eternal peace.  Be free & be you, you are safe at home.
