He was born in 1961 to his parents, Louie and Angelina Zamora Chavez, and has two daughters. Edward enjoyed many different hobbies, which included sketching and painting. He had a love for woodworking, and a passion for low riders, especially his 1977 Monte Carlo.
Edward loved to act silly and make people laugh. He enjoyed spending time around his family, whom he loved dearly. Edward’s character and the way he carried himself are what made him stand out from everyone else. He was always willing to help others and put them before himself. Edward especially loved and would do anything for his granddaughters.
His life was a blessing and his memory will forever be treasured.
