 Angel Torres      November 24, 1942 – December 3, 2021

Angel Torres, 79, passed away on Friday, December 3, 2021, after a short battle with cancer.
He is survived by his husband, Martin Johnson, of Philadelphia, his sister Delia Torres, his sister-in-law, Doris Torres, of Puerto Rico, an aunt, an uncle and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents, Valentin and Teresa Torres, two sisters, Gloria and Andrea, and a brother, Daniel.
Born in Puerto Rico, Angel’s family moved to the Bronx when he was a young boy.  He loved New York and most would consider him to be a true New Yorker.  He loved music, dancing and a good action movie.  He was a prolific poet and published a small book of poems. 
Angel’s warm smile and happy go-lucky countenance drew people around him.  He thrived on exploring city streets walking hundreds of miles to find new shops and restaurants.  He was a kind and gentle soul, loving people and pets, especially Gertie, Betty and Molly all mini dachshunds.
He will be mourned though he would urge us to carry on, remembering the cherished moments he left on our hearts.
