PRICE - Our loving father, son, brother and dear friend, Edward Gonzales, aka "Fast Eddie" who was born Dec. 30, 1947 in Spokane, Wash., passed away peacefully October 18, 2012 at the age of 64 in Price.
Eddie was a friend you could count on when times were rough. He had a way of making things better with his witty logic and lighter take on life no matter how bad the situation. Eddie enjoyed traveling, playing pool and spending time with family and friends. He was always there to listen and offer whatever help he could give, be it money, or the shirt off his back. His love for life would always make you feel better no matter what the problems were. Eddie was very knowledgeable, he loved spending hours reading and was a huge movie buff. He was a longtime resident of Carbon County and graduate of Carbon High. In his later years he moved to Baltimore, MD, where he worked as a truck driver for several years.
Survived by his son, Eddie Gonzales, Helper; his parents, Bill and Priscilla Gonzales, Price; brothers, Richard Garry, Spokane, Wash., and William "Billy" (Stephanie) Gonzales; sisters, Dorothy (Bill) Marston, Spring Glen, Vera (Marlin) Andrus, Salt Lake City, Emma Robertson, Price, Sharon (Jimmy) Basso, Price, and Dixie (Nathan) Marvidikis, Helper; longtime friend and companion Dee and beloved daughter Heather Gurovich, Baltimore, MD; and many loved and cherished nieces and nephews.
We invite all those who wish to gather and celebrate his life through camaraderie and stories to join us on Wednesday, Oct. 24, 2012 from 3 - 5 p.m. at the Savoy Club, 81 West Main Street, Price.
