Dr. Amado "Mady" P. Torres
Amado was born in Pasay City, Philippines, on July 28, 1928. He was the son of the late Antonio and Leona (Protacio) Torres. Amado attended Union High School in Manila, and graduated from University of the Philippines with a B.S. in Zoology. He completed medical school at Manila Central University College of Medicine in 1956. He came to the United States in 1964 to continue his medical training at Sinai Hospital in Baltimore, MD, internal medicine residency at Lutheran Hospital, Cleveland, OH, and gastroenterology residency at Cleveland Metropolitan General Hospital in Cleveland, OH. In 1969, he assumed a medical post at Newton D. Baker Veterans Administration Medical Center in Martinsburg, WV. He then settled down in the practice of General Internal Medicine & Gastroenterology in Cumberland, MD in 1973, and retired from practice in 1992.
Amado was very much devoted to his family as husband, father, and grandfather. He was a 40-year member of the First Presbyterian Church in Cumberland, and a member of the Cumberland Scottish Rite. All who knew him remember his passion and love of the musical arts. He never missed the opportunity to play the piano (or any keyboard instrument for that matter) if there was one in his vicinity, or if a soloist needed accompaniment. A classically trained pianist, he seamlessly transitioned from playing Chopin to Glenn Miller to Billy Joel.
In retirement, Amado and his wife Evangeline (Jane) traveled extensively both domestically and abroad. He was especially fond of visiting the countries and birth places of historical figures, especially those of classical composers, in both western and eastern Europe.
He was preceded in death by his wife Jane, as well as his two sisters, Consuelo and Trinidad, and two brothers, Alfredo and Arsenio. He is survived by son, Jed Torres and wife Deborah, Fairfax, VA; daughter Daisy Reynolds and husband Ian, Collegeville, PA; daughter Janice Stone and husband David, Naples, FL; and five grandchildren, Daniel Christian Torres, Fairfax, VA; Alexandra Reynolds and Luke Reynolds, Collegeville, PA; and Jessica Stone and Makayla Stone, Naples, FL.
A private memorial service will be held February 8, 2019 in Naples, FL.
