Eddie or Ed as he was fondly called by family and friends, was born on January 12, 1948 in Odessa, TX. He took some college courses during the early years but found his passion working for Metro Transportation for 42 years, and retired as Transit Operation Supervisor.

He was a great man and a loving father. He married Gabriela Dominguez in West Covina and they were together for 16 years. He was a faithful servant who was deeply involved in the church for majority of his life. He enjoyed fishing, shooting, and spending time with his family. 

His family and friends will remember him as a wonderful role model, someone that was funny who joked around all the time and a man of great faith.
