Baltazar Torres was born February 21, 1934 to Sixto and Maria (Vasquez) Torres in Uriangato, Mexico. A long-time parishioner of St. Charles Borromeo Church, he passed away on September 2, 2020 at home with his loving family by his side.
Baltazar was a man of determination. When he wanted something, he worked for it. Meeting his wife, Maria of 56 years; continuing his education at Maple Woods Community College; learning English; and obtaining a license as a machinist, allowing him to retire from TWA after 26 years of service.
Baltazar was also a provider. Providing a home for his family, food to eat, clothes to wear, and an education for his children.
He was the last surviving member of his seven siblings. Survived by his wife Maria; four sons: Ruben, Martin, Carlos and Edgar; seven grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.
