Eduardo Berrelez III went home to be with his Lord on December 23, 2018. He died of natural causes and complications from polio. His friends knew him as Ed or Eddy, but to his family, he was known as Jr.
Ed and his twin brother, Juan Jose, were born on January 13, 1956 in Nampa, Idaho, to Eduardo and Alicia Berrelez. Ed was infected with the poliovirus when he was an infant, which caused him to live a life filled with daily challenges. However, he attended schools in Nampa and then continued his education at Washington State University, where he learned software programming. He was employed with Hewlett-Packard Company and retired after 20 years.
Ed loved to fish, travel, and spend time with family at barbecues. He loved his family; he always greeted them with a smile on his face and was ready to tell jokes.
Ed was preceded in death by his parents, twin brother, sister – Leonor DeHoyos, brother – Edward Berrelez II, and brother in law – Mike Mora.
He is survived by his brothers –Juan (Darlene) Berrelez of Caldwell, Tony Berrelez of Nampa, Julio (Ruth) Berrelez of Nampa, and Moses (Dianna) Berrelez of Colorado. Sisters – Frances Castillo of Caldwell, Mary (Larry) Parker, Margie Berrelez of Nampa, and Angie B. Mora of Idaho Falls.
Jr, this part of your journey is over and now you can run as fast as you want. We love you and will miss you always brother. Give Mom and Dad a hug for us. We will see you again soon.
There will be a Celebration of Life on Saturday, December 29, 2018 from 2-5 pm at Best Western Inn and Suites, 908 Sprecht Ave. Caldwell, Idaho.
