Edward G. Morua

Edward G. Morua, 79, returned home to his Heavenly Father on Monday, May 5, 2014 following a brief battle with lung cancer.  Eddie was born in Santa Barbara, CA on October 13, 1934 to the late Victor and Alexandra Morua.  In 1942, his family moved to Santa Paula, CA, where he lived the remainder of his life.

Eddie could light up any room with his great sense of humor, even up until the final days of his passing. He enjoyed bird watching, fishing, going to swap meets, and collecting antiques.  He enjoyed spending time with family and friends and watching his beloved Raiders and USC Trojans.

He is preceded in death by his siblings, sister Connie Garcia, brothers Richard,  Rudy Sr., Arthur, David Morua Sr.; niece, Susan Marie Morua ; nephews, Rudy Jr., and David Morua Jr.

Eddie will be deeply missed by his loving family, brothers Raymond (Josie), Manuel Morua (Brenda), sister Virginia Gomez (Ruben); brother-in-law Albert Garcia, sisters-in-law Rosie Morua, Inez Morua, and Mary Morua. 

In addition, to his siblings and in-laws, he will be greatly missed by numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and his best friend and neighbor, George Thurman.

The family would like to extend their appreciation to the staff at Buena Vista Hospice Care, Inc. for their special care during a very brief but difficult time. They would also like to give a special thank you to Nurse Danielle Becerra for being so loving and compassionate to Eddie and the family during this time.

A graveside service honoring the life of Edward will be held on Friday, May 16, 2014 at 11:00 a.m. at Pierce Brothers Santa Paula Cemetery, 380 Cemetery Road, Santa Paula, CA with Pastor Ray Carrillo officiating.
