Rosary will be said at 6:00 p.m., Monday, March 5, 2018. Funeral services will be at 11:00 a.m., Tuesday, March 6, 2018, at Boxwell Brothers Ivy Chapel. Arrangements are by Boxwell Brothers Funeral Directors, 2800 Paramount Blvd.
Jose was born October 8, 1950, in Huanusco Zacatecas, Mexico, to Jose and Esperanza Diaz De Leon Torres.
Jose lived an American Dream. He came to the United States, leaving his beloved country and land to seek out opportunity and to help his mother, father, brothers and sisters back in Mexico. Through his journey in the U.S., he would later find his forever soul mate, his wife, Juanita Anez. They married on July 15, 1972 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Through their struggles, they settled in Texas and helped, and raised three sons. Through good-times and hard-times, he taught them hard work, doing the job right, his words of wisdom, advice, and generosity. He went back to his roots and started and enjoyed gardening, which later lead to his own business at a second chance in landscaping. His love for his family and his humor will always be remembered. He always encouraged us to be the best at what we do. He shared his love of his music and sports. He was a son, a brother, a husband, a father, an uncle, a coach, our #1 Fan, in his own words, “Siguele”.
He was a hard worker, owned his own landscaping business and worked for AISD for 18 years. Jose was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church.
He was preceded in death by his parents; two brothers, Santos Torres and Rene Torres; and a sister, Rocia Garcia.
Survivors include his wife, Juanita Torres, of Amarillo; three sons, Jose Torres Jr. and wife Rita, Marin Torres and wife Kristy, and Alex Torres, all of Amarillo; eight brothers, Alejandro Torres of Mexico, Sergio Torres, Juan Manuel, Joel Torres, Jose Luis Torres, Hector Torres and Rodrigo Torres, all of California, and Jaime Torres of Dumas; and six sisters, Cristina Huerta of Fort Worth, Esperanza Ortiz, Lourdes Martinez, Maria Sandoval and Clara Luz Nunez, all of California, and Silvia Aguayo of Des Moines; and four grandchildren, Isaiah Torres, Javier H. Torres, Matteo Torres and Mia Torres.

    Jose was a wonderful man! He was such a talented landscaper and a very helpful person. He always had a smile on his face when I would get to Wolflin each morning! I know he’s smiling in heaven!

    He was a very cheerful and kind man with a great work ethic. I spoke with him many times while he was doing his duties as custodian and outside maintenance for ABF. I will surely miss him in our Saturday conversations. Your work is done now, the Lord has called you home.

    Jose to me was an example of a very hard working man with a humble spirit.
    He has done lawn care and tree service at my home for 14 years. His work ethic and knowledge were awesome.
    He and I became friends and spent much time just talking.
    My sincere condolences to you Mrs. Torres and to the entire family.
    God bless you Jose.
