Edward Mercado Mabunga July 5, 1945 - October 20, 2013

Edward Mercado Mabunga, 68, passed peacefully at his home on Sunday, October 20, 2013. He was survived by his loving wife Lorna and 2 sons Jeremy and Rhandie. He was a proud grandfather of 10 grandkids, Alex, Autumn, Erik, Hunter, Colton, Dillon, Tabitha, Alianndra, Jaycee and Amaya. He was preceded in death by his 4 brothers and 5 sisters.

Eddie "Boy" was born and raised in the Philippines by the late Moises Sr. and Vicenta Mabunga. He attended BYU Hawaii in 1973 for 2 years then moved to Utah and attended the LDS Business College in Salt Lake City. Due to a rare condition, he became blind. This did not stop him from living his life to the fullest. His self reliance motivated him to establish his own business, Mabunga Travel, where he helped many customers travel to and from the Philippines. Edward was active and was well-known in the Filipino community in which he was recognized and awarded the Governor's Award in 2003 for his contributions. He is known for having a great sense of humor and he loved his family immeasurably.

A viewing will be held on Friday, Oct. 25th from 6:00-8:00pm at the Valley View Funeral Home, 4335 W 4100 S, West Valley City. The funeral will be held on Saturday, October 26th at 11:00 am at the Hunter 11th Ward chapel, 5065 W Janette Ave. West Valley City, right after the viewing from 9:30am that same day. www.valleyviewfuneral.com

I'm deeply saddened to hear Edward is gone. He was such a nice man. Helped me get ticket to the Philippines cheap. I never got to visit him last year. Only saw his wife. Him and Lorna was at my wedding in 2005. Only guests to come to my wedding. I'm so sad Edward gone. I will miss him Alot. My condolences to Lorna and Edwards family. Scott Nielsen. Wish I knew and could have attended Edwards funeral. Bye Edward. I Miss You!

I am dismayed to hear of the passing of Ed. Although we never met in person, we spoke a number of times on the telephone due to mutual business exchanges. My prayers go out to Ed's family and I know that he is now seated at the side of our Heavenly Father.
