Juan Torres Obituary

Juan Herrera Torres, 75, of Woodbury passed away at his home Saturday, January 20, 2024.  Born in Mariano, Cuba, he was the son of the late Mario Delgado Torres and Automia Roselina Herrera.

Juan came to the United States with his friend, Jesus Berriel in 1980 when President Jimmy Carter and Fidel Castro came to an agreement during the Mariel Boatlift.  The Mariel Boatlift of 1980 was a mass emigration of Cubans to the United States. Juan and Jesus worked their way from Florida to Tennessee eventually making their home in Woodbury.  They worked as roofers and farm hands doing just about everything.  They both could always be counted on.  They made many friends over the years in Woodbury as some became their family,
