This donation site is to raise funds to help the family of Steven Torres.

On Saturday, February 21, 2015 our hearts felt heavy when we all received the disturbing news that our beloved Steven Torres unexpectedly passed away at his home in Covina, CA. 

 On August 12, 1985, Steven Torres was born at French Hospital in China Town, CA (explains his chinese eyes). As a young child he grew up in Los Angeles until he turned 11 when his family moved to Rancho Cucamonga, CA. 

 As a young boy he was very much involved in sports, music, and most importantly family. He played hockey during his pre-teen years with his younger siblilings Nicole and Richard.

He was also a big fan of WWF, it was a father and son bond, pizza and WWF (Ultimite Worrior was his favoirte). Through the years, the bond continued to grow. As an adult the roles reversed from parent taking care of the kids to kids taking care of the parents. He prepared meals daily and smothered his father with love. He was his dad's ROCK!


His mother, the bond of a mother and son is beyond unconditional. Steven was a concert goer, and his favoirte bands were Marilyn Manson and Slipknot but his number one concert partner was his mom. He enjoyed the bond of rocking out to their favorite bands,it was their special bond that no one could take away.
Aside for the love of metal music, he also had a strong passion for the late Micheal Jackson. As a young kid, he even got his hair permed so he could have Micheal's image.The love of siblings was STRONG in this household. Dozens of photos as young kids were with his parents and siblings. As the three became adults, the bond became stronger. The support that he gave to his sister in becoming a baker, a chef,  and a home baker who supported her to the max. His brother's move to Vegas wouldn't allow the distance to come between them. He made frequent visits to see him.



His nephew was his number one priority. He would turn mountains if he could to be there for him. He was the babysitter (Manny), the uncle, but more importantly Julian was his little buddie.    One day he went from Slipknot to the Carpenters and Los Bukis and we all knew he fell in love. He fell in love with a girl name Lauren. The past year he's loved her and has shown it in his writing notes on facebook. 




This past year Steven had accepted the calling of God. Many of us did not know including his parents but Steven would sneak out of his house to attend Sunday mass. He told two of his cousins (chuckling steven voice) I'm an undercover Christian, I go to mass with the old folks. He would also pray for those who needed prayer. In our hearts we know that God was preparing him but a servant of God in many ways we know he was and we can feel the comfort in knowing that with God all things are possible. 

Although the gates of Heaven will open for Steven, his legacy will always be remembered in our lives for his unconditional love, comfort, silliness, laughter, but most importantly all his selfless acts.     

His mother Lourdes Torres shared this about her son Steven: He was the laughter that brought joy to us all. He was a clown full of jokes and pranks. 

His father Martin Torres shared this about his son Steven; My son loved, he loved heavy, people came first, very simple man, but he loved, pure unconditional love.
