Julio César was born in Peñuelas, Puerto Rico on October 31, 1934. He was predeceased by his parents Nemesio Torres and Aurelia Irizarry and brothers: Jose Manuel, Erasto, and Nemesio, Jr. He met his late wife, Luz “Lucy” Maria Camacho in May 1958. They were married on December 20th, 1963. In 1982, they relocated to Orlando, Florida to give their children an opportunity for a better education and future. He is survived by his sister, Adalila “Daly” Roldan and five children: Dr. Karin Ford-Torres (Kisha), Patricia Calderon (Joseph), Katherine Michelle Torres, Julio Torres (Rosie), Dr. Lucille Marie Torres-Deas (Issa), and “hija de crianza “Jeanette Campos (Robert). He was also the grandfather of Christian Reyes, Joseph Calderon (Roxie), Jazmin Calderon, Robert Campos, Jean Carlos Campos, Jeannelle Campos, Jianna Calderon, Serena Torres, Julia Calderon, Jacob Torres, Karigan Ford-Torres, Issa Lucían Deas Torres, and Lilah Marie Deas Torres. He was the great grandfather of Joseph Alejandro and Ava Calderon. Julio César served in the United States Army from 1955-1957. He was stationed in Wiesbaden, Germany during his service. He successfully obtained a Bachelor’s in Business Administration in Accounting at the University of Puerto Rico and a Master’s in Business Administration at the Pontifical Catholic University. Thereafter, he joined Pontifical Catholic University as a professor. He also operated a tax accounting office with his wife, Lucy. Julio César showed his family the value of love, faith, and perseverance. He loved old movies, music, dancing, laughing, cooking, and animals. He had a strong faith and was a parishioner of St. John Vianney Catholic Church since 1982. He valued discipline, respect, honesty, “compadres” (friendship), education, hard work, and family. He was a great storyteller and orator for family gatherings or celebrations (You had to make sure you had a seat secured or risk standing for his lengthy, heart-felt speeches!). He treasured teaching and mentoring others on all aspects of life. He did it his way, up to the very end! He will be greatly missed!
