Our deepest sympathy for the entire family. Steve as we dearly called him was a good wonderful man, father, and spouse . The first time I knew about Steve was when we went to Illinois and worked as Special Undercover Agents for the Illinois Bureau of Investigation. We graduated from the Law Enforcement Academy . He shootimg/aiming skills with hand guns was to envy. When going thru the 3-4 months Academy we roomed together. So you can say, we lived together. After, we both participated in many drug undercover operations successfully.
For many years we kept in contact with Sherryl. We would exchange Christmas cards and letters for decades. We had fun and served the country.

I just found out about this and for sure will I miss him a lot. He was always there for me. I still have letters from him .

Again, my wife and I Yvette are here to support Cheryl and their children if anything is needed in the future. Strength , love, and peace to all.

Steve was more then just a friend, above all he was a brother who care for each and every one of his O.C.S. Classmates of 5-68. We are all better having known Steve and being a small part of his life. As a fellow official we often talked about working with the youth of today and how we were able to influence them for even the shortest of times while on the competition field. I was able to work with Steve on several of our class reunions and one of the most fun was when we were in San Antonio and had the case of the lost case of beer. Steve with is FBI background was able to deduct that Teddy Roosevelt and the Rough Riders got thirsty in the middle of the night and raided our hospitality room. Great laughs and mostly smiles surrounded Steve. He love God, his family and Country. Cheryl was there with him at most of the reunion functions and we will be there for her as well as the family. Steve I will miss you personally and professionally. Taking time out for my Birthday to be there for My Brother and Friend Steve.

Steve Torres was one of the best in every way. Dedicated to God, family, nation, friends and strangers, he lived life fully with love, joy, humor, with a deep comittment to the highest of values. His tenacity led him to find each member of our OCS class in the military tradition of no man left behind. And as he found each of us, my wife and I serving as missionaries at a remote school in Mexico, he arranged loving blessings and aid as he enthusiasticly shared his find with generous buddies.

Steve was a man who shared his gifts, a delight, a wonderful "hound from heaven" and will be greatly missed. His was a life fully lived. Our deep appreciation, love, and condolences to Cheryl and family.

Steve was a friend. His love for his family, friends and country was unquestionable. We shared the OCS experience and at the reunions he helped organize we laughed heartily at the antics of our fellow candidates and Tac Officers. We will miss the "fruit picker" and his stories. A heartfelt love to Cheryl and family. Rest in Peace Warrior.

Steve was a great patriot, comrade in arms, OCS classmate, and friend. Our last times together were the best--Army/Navy football game in Philly in 2017. What a great experience. Miserable weather--snow, cold, wind, all smiles. Dave Heminger, Steve and I couldn't have had a better time. He will be missed by all of us. Sad times for us all.

Steve was one of the good guys!

I was honored to spend time with him in OCS 5-68, reunions and several hunting trips. Enjoyed his stories, laughter and his huge smile. A true brother.

My condolences to Cheryl and Steve's family and friends.

It was an honor to go through OCS with Stevan. He exemplified what is great in a wonderful patriotic man. He made sacrifices for the betterment of all through his service in the Army and then with the FBI. He will be missed but not forgotten.

Steve and I were OCS classmates, graduating together as second lieutenants on 5 Feb 68. We reconnected several years later when we worked together to put together a series of OCS class reunions. Steve played a vital role in helping locate most of our classmates. Steve loved his brothers-at-arms and he never missed an opportunity to serve. He and Cheryl attended every reunion and they were vital to our success. Steve also joined me and several other classmates for several hog hunting trips here in Texas. He was a great story teller and the life of any party. In December of 2017 we went to the Army-Navy game together … a "bucket list" item for both Steve and me. We persevered the cold and snowy day, and were thrilled that Army won! I will miss Steve greatly and I know that all of his OCS classmates will as well.
