Richard Torres

October 31, 1971 — January 30, 2021

Richard Torres, 49, of Exeter Township, passed away on Saturday, January 30, 2021, in Reading Hospital. He was the husband of Sherrie (Gilbert) Torres. Born in Reading, he was the son of Gricel Torres of Reading. Rich was a 1990 graduate of Reading High School and was a member of St. Catharine of Siena R.C.C.--Exeter Township. Rich worked in shipping at CarTech for several years and prior many years at Reading Truck Body as a programmer.

Rich is survived by his two sons Julian and Gavin and his twin brother Elliot. He is also survived by his father in law Craig Gilbert and mother in law Nadine Fasig. In addition, he is survived by many wonderful uncles, aunts, cousins and nephews.

Rich was an amazing husband and father of his two boys which were his pride and joy. His love for his family was immeasurable and his twin brother Elliot was his life buddy for sure. As a huge Eagles fan he enjoyed watching the games and hanging with his "Steeple Chase" crew. Rich would lend a hand to anyone and was always a blast to be around. His kindness was obvious when he fostered and failed recently his pittie girl Sammi. To know Rich is to love Rich and he will be greatly missed by many.
