Resident of Cupertino
Edward Tavares passed away peacefully on July 25, 2014, with his son by his side. Edward was born on August 21, 1924 in Rhode Island to Edwardo and Albertina Tavares.
After a brief stay in New York, the family moved to California and eventually settled in Castro Valley and later in Los Gatos.
Edward attended Castro Valley Elementary School and graduated from Hayward High in 1943. After graduation, he enlisted in the Air Force and traveled around the world as part of the Flying Tigers Team during WWII.
After the war, Edward continued his education and graduated from San Jose State University. In 1950, he began his teaching career in a one room schoolhouse in Fort Seward, California. From there, he went on to teach in the Cupertino school district. Fondly known as "Mr. T", he taught at Doyle, John Muir, and many other elementary schools during his 50 year teaching career.
Edward was preceded in death by his wife, Adaline Pianto. Left to honor and cherish his memory is his son Edward Tavares Jr.
A memorial service will be announced at a later date.
