January 1, 1941 – June 16, 2020
Edward Caceres, also known as Mr. C went to be with the Lord on June 16 in Stamford, CT at the age of 79.
Edward is survived by his wife Lidia of Stamford, CT, his son Edward of New Milford, CT, his daughter Lisa Benson of Midland, TX, his brother Francisco of Hollywood, FL, his 3 granddaughters Mercedes, Sabriyya and Brooke. He had a loving daughter-in-law Beverly, a treasured son-in-law Kevin and Javier Bawden, a close member of the family.
Edward was born in Argentina and married his sweetheart Lidia. From Argentina he, his wife and young son immigrated to the United States and started a new life in New Milford, CT where he worked on the estate of Candlelight Farms. The couple welcomed their second child, Lisa into their home and made their permanent home in Stamford, CT.
Edward was an accomplished business owner of Mr. C's Fix-Up shop in Stamford and jack-of-all-trades. He was a great storyteller, loved a good joke, a juicy steak, a hot cup of coffee and was passionate about riding his mortocycle, affectionately reffered to as "his girlfriend". He was a dedicated member of the Masonic Lodge #5 in Stamford, CT. Needless to say, he loved his family and worked tirelessly to support for their needs all throughout the years.
A memorial is planned for the future. The family would like to thank the staff of Stamford Hospital and in particular Dr. Angevine

As I walk around my home, I see furniture and projects that Mr C repaired. He would stop by, fix things, and often we would sit down and have a cup of coffee or a tall cool glass of pineapple juice. He would tell the best stories about experiences from his life. Little by little, we became friends. Rest in peace my dear friend. You may be gone, but you are not forgotten.

I met Edward Sr. during the time that his son and I both worked at Datastrip. Like his son, Edward Sr. was very friendly, personable, and could carry on a conversation with anyone, seemingly about almost anything! He will be missed by his family, his friends, and anyone else he came into contact with -- where he would have made a great first and lasting impression (as he did with me).
My wife Dawn and I wish your entire family peace and fond memories through these very difficult times. We'll be thinking about you!
