Eustacio Torres Jr. Former Martinez Resident Eustacio Torres Jr., born in Orange County and raised in Martinez, California, passed on Sunday, July 19th 2009 at the age of 41. Eustacio was a loving and kind man dedicated to his family and community. Eustacio was a graduate of Alhambra High School and an alumnus of San Francisco State University where he majored in Science and Biology and a minor in Chemistry. Always a passionate athlete, Eustacio achieved the designation of "All American" in wrestling while attending SFSU. At the impressive age of 18 Eustacio became a license contractor in the State of California as a way to finance his education. When Eustacio saw a need, he would try to fill it. Whether it was coaching Alhambra High School's wrestling team, helping his parents, family, or friends, he always took great pride in sharing with others. In 1998, he relocated to Southern California to pursue graduate school studies. Thereafter, a career change led him to continue honing his craft as a General Contractor. Surely and steadily he became the sole proprietor of Sharp Construction, a development and remodeling firm located in San Diego, California. With numerous successful projects completed under his tenure, Eustacio will leave long standing examples of his dedication and commitment to the building industry. He also built pride and love in his family and friends through his compassionate heart and we will be a long standing example of his everlasting love. Eustacio lovingly known as "Stash" or "Tacho" is survived by his Mother Rafaela Ruvalcaba Torres; Father Eustacio Torres Sr.; siblings Guillermo, Silvia, Patricia, Noe; brothers-in-law Alberto and Alfonso; his nieces and nephews he loved as his own, Rafael, Nicolas, Victoria, Luis, Moises, Isabella, AJ and great-nephew Andrew.
