Patricio “Pat” Baeza Torres, 78, of Littlefield, Texas passed away March 10, 2019 at his home surrounded by his family. He was born June 5, 1940 in Alpine, Texas to Felipe and Rosa (Baeza) Torres.

 Pat worked hard to provide for his family.  He worked several places during his life, but in Littlefield he was an employee for NIPAK for 20 years, which was later known as American Plant Food, and then he went to American Cotton Growers and was there for 27 years. 

He married Betty Ellis Jan. 12, 1996 in Littlefield.  Those who knew him would say he was a kind and loving man, and always had a smile on his face. 

Pat was a regular at Snap Fitness, and as much as he loved working out, he still enjoyed his sweets and cake. Most of all, Pat loved his family, and spending time with them. He enjoyed their traditional Friday pancake breakfast before the football games, and he was a loyal Wildcat fan of all sports, loved watching his grandchildren play ball, and proudly supported his daughter in the LHS Wildcat Band. He also was a huge fan of Texas Tech, especially baseball. 

Pat was dedicated to his community and helping wherever he was needed. He coached Little League, umpired and refereed many games, and was always lending a hand for various community events and functions. He was active in Sacred Heart Catholic Church where he served as a cursillista.  He was very strong in his faith, and loved praying with his family before meals and trips, preaching to his children, and spreading the word of God with everyone. 

 Pat is survived by his wife, Betty Torres of Littlefield; five sons, Ruben Torres and wife Tammy of Spade, Texas, Pat Torres, Jr. and wife Irma of Slaton, Texas, Oscar Torres of Littlefield, Israel Torres and wife Tina of Commerce City, Colorado, and Alfonso Torres and wife Lisa of Littlefield; four daughters Gloria Ayala and husband Albert of Littlefield, Yolanda Garcia and husband Domingo of New Braunfels, Texas, Monica Mayes and husband Ricky of Littlefield, Alibi Torres of Littlefield and step daughter, Savannah Ellis and partner Danny Marquez of Littlefield; 38 grandchildren; 42 great grandchildren; four great-great grandchildren; two brothers, Robert Torres and wife Terrie of Alpine and Israel Torres and wife Elsa of Del Rio, Texas; and one sister, Rosa Navarette and husband Alex of Lubbock, Texas; plus many cousins, nieces, nephews and extended family members. 

Funeral Mass will be 10 a.m., Friday, March 15, 2019 at Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Littlefield with Father Brian Wood officiating. Interment will follow in Sacred Heart Catholic Cemetery in Littlefield. Rosary will be recited Thursday, March 14, at 6 p.m. at the funeral home.
