Pedro Torres is one of many great men and women that impacted the United States in the 1950’s- with one goal of succeeding the American Dream, and arriving to NYC with a wave, that changed many lives in our urban neighborhoods. Pedro Torres is a unique man, with his sacrifice and not knowing bounds, or having limits to achieve success. Pedro Torres was a wise businessman, owned bodegas, gas stations, real estate, and was a proud city inspector. After graduating college, he met a beautiful young woman that birthed Daisy, Pedro Jr. and Fernando…
He overcame all challenges that crossed his path of life without taking shortcuts or cheating.
Love, Loyalty, Respect, Honor and Fairness is the only manner he lived his life.
His battle with illness and disease was a long battle. And as we all stand here today and witness him go in honor and respect.
Once again he overcame another challenge, by earning his real estate in the house of the Lord. There’s no Bigger Gift than living with God.
