Eddie served in the military at a very young age during World War 11 in Manila, Philippines. He then worked at the City Hall of Manila in the Philippines most of his adult years. At the age of 57, he together with his wife and son, migrated to the United States of America and resided in Seaside, California. In 2003, he and his wife moved and settled in Fresno, California. Eddie lived and spent the rest of his life here in Fresno, California for 17 years. His family and friends knew him as a kind, thoughtful, funny, generous, and mild-mannered loving father and husband. He was a fighter as he fought his lung disease for so many years. He was known to nurses and doctors who took care of him at the VA Hospital as funny and friendly. The family wishes to express their special thanks and sincere appreciation to the nurses and doctors at the Veterans Affair Hospital who gave him eight more fantastic years since he was diagnosed with this untreatable disease.
