He had a California soul and developed a Texas swagger.

Edward Hernandez, 29, passed away peacefully at his home in Houston, Texas on May 25, 2018. Eddie Hernandez was born in West Covina on February 17, 1989; raised in Los Angeles; schooled at Azusa High School before completing his education through the Job Corps. He moved to Houston, Texas when he was 15 years old and began the journey that positioned him to be such a great provider. A generous family man and entrepreneur, he had an ambition and focus to create the best opportunities for his loved ones.

He is preceded in death by his mother Peggy Ariza and his grandfather, Edmundo Ariza. He is survived by Laila (Daughter), Katie (Wife), Jessica Paz (Sister), Anthony Gonzalez (Brother), Gilbert Hernandez (Father), Milagro Ariza and David and Gerry Rodriguez (Grandparents) and a multitude of family and friends.

Edward Hernandez represented home for so many of us – his warmth has been our shelter; his generosity our life jackets; and his consistency our anchors. If you ever found yourself fatigued by the weariness of the world, refuge could always be found at his doorsteps. He was heroic with the care he extended to the people in his tribe and practiced a radical, spirited zeal in pursuing the gift of life. He brought light to the many lives around him and his contagious laugh will be greatly missed. The sharpest guy in the room, he never lost sight of the humor in our everyday lives. Eddie was known for his compassion. He went above and beyond to make those around him comfortable- anyone who met him automatically felt like they knew him.

Eddie’s legacy will live on through his daughter, Laila Monroe Hernandez, who he lived for, would have done anything for, and who his whole life revolved around.


  • He is survived by Laila (Daughter), Katie (Wife), Jessica Paz (Sister), Anthony Gonzalez (Brother), Gilbert Hernandez (Father), Milagro Ariza and David and Gerry Rodriguez (Grandparents) and a multitude of family and friends

Mi mas sentido pesame a todos los familiares y amigos del joven Hernandez. Sabia usted que Dios anhela devolverle la vida a los muertos? Pronto Dios va a resucitar a todos los que estan en las tumbas conmemorativas segun muestra Juan 5:28, 29 "28 No se sorprendan de lo que les digo, porque va a llegar el momento en que los muertos oiran mi voz  29 y saldrán de sus tumbas”, asegura la Biblia.  

Ademas en Isaias 25:8 Dios tambien promete que “Él realmente se tragará a la muerte para siempre, y el Señor Soberano Jehová ciertamente limpiará las lágrimas de todo rostro. Y el oprobio de su pueblo quitará de toda la tierra, porque Jehová mismo [lo] ha hablado.” 

Cuando llegue ese día, ya nunca mas tendremos que temer morir pues la muerte dejara de existir.  Revelacion 21:4 nos dice "4 Y limpiará toda lágrima de sus ojos, y la muerte no será más, ni existirá ya más lamento ni clamor ni dolor. Las cosas anteriores han pasado”. Espero estas maravillosas promesas le llenen de paz, consuelo y esperanza hasta verlas cumplidas.

For 22-23 years Eddie was my best friends he was my brother from first grade till now the best times in my life were spent with him. As we got older an he moved here to Texas I had to follow. He taught me how to drive, he tried to teach me to let loose, didn’t work as well but he’d till have a good time. Amusement parks, traveling to new cities, trying new things. There was never a dull moment. My heart is heavy writing this there not enough words to describe ho Much I loved him and how much I miss his or will miss him in the future. My life will never be the same.
