Juan R. “JR” Torres, age 39 of Buckeye, AZ died April 13, 2019 in Buckeye, AZ. He was born August 20, 1979 in Buckeye, AZ, the oldest of six children born to Ricardo and Hilda Torres. He attended Tomahawk Elementary, Estrella Middle School and Trevor Browne High School, where he played football and basketball.  JR was a natural offensive lineman in football. His physical presence was such that his coaches remarked, “All you have to do is put a helmet on him and let him go.”

JR worked a variety of jobs, but mostly warehouse work. He also worked installing solar panels.   He was a hard worker and would outdo everyone else on the job.  As the oldest, JR was the leader and protector of his brothers and sisters.  In his youth, he would often fight his younger brother’s battles. In spite of his physical size, JR was a love-able guy. He loved to talk.  Once he started a conversation it was difficult to get him to stop. His many nieces and nephews loved to visit him and jump all over him. To them he was a big teddy bear. He loved having his family around, and enjoyed watching football and barbecuing with them.

JR is survived by his parents, Ricardo G and Hilda H Torres; grandmother, Clara Hernandez; sisters, Irma and Vanessa Torres; brother Ricardo, Jr. and Daniel Torres; and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his brother, Benjamin Torres.

A visitation will be held at 10:00 am with a funeral service at 11:00 am, Thursday, April 25, 2019 at Skyway Church, 14900 W Van Buren St, Goodyear, AZ 85338.
