Edgar was born in Mexico but called San Jose, Ca home before settling in Manteca. He served his country proudly through the United States Army in Vietnam. Edgar worked hard all throughout his life as a carpenter and would retire after 30 years. He had a passion for cars and tinkering in his garage and listening to his favorite oldies was his favorite pass time. Edgar was social and had a personality that
would light up a room. People were instantly attracted to his charisma and his easygoing spirit. He loved his family unconditionally and let them know in his own special way. Edgar left a legacy of love, loyalty, joy, hard work, strong traditions and family values. He will be remembered as a loving husband, dad,
Wito, Hermano, Tio and friend. He will be deeply missed.
