Eduardo Haro Obituary

A graveside service will be held for Eduardo Haro on Friday, September 23, 2016 at the Gridley-Biggs Cemetery at 2 p.m. A viewing will also be held at Newton Bracewell Funeral Home in Chico on Friday, September 23rd from 12 p.m. till 1 p.m.

Eduardo "Eddie" Haro, the 16th child of Angel and Guadalupe Haro of Gridley, passed away on Saturday September 17, 2016 at the age of 52. He was born on October 30, 1963.

He was preceded in death by his mother in 1981, his father in 1999, and his stepmother Maria Cuevas Haro earlier in 2016.

Because he was born with Down's Syndrome, Angel and Guadalupe were told Eddie might never be able to walk or talk and that he would burden the family with minimal quality of life.

Far from this, Eddie was a delight to the family and to all who knew him. Eddie took pride in graduating from Sierra Del Oro School, working at the Work Training Program, attending the ARC program in Paradise, and most recently attending the enrichment program at Mains'l Innovations in Chico.

He was a movie and music enthusiast, re-naming many of his family members and friends after movie characters. He loved to ride his three wheeled bike, and enjoyed tubing and riding a wave runner on the lake. He also loved swimming, bowling, ping pong, domestic and international travel, and when hearing about a new place he would always say, "I not been there yet".

After his father's death, he lived with his sister and brother-in-law, Lupe and Kurt Johnson. He enjoyed attending the Chico Seventh-Day Adventist Church where he has many friends and always loved the potlucks.

He is survived by his sisters, Trini Haro of Yuba City, Conni Houck of Oakley, Lupe Johnson of Durham, Sylvia Torres of Pollock Pines, Gema "Alice" Knipe of Biggs, Lucy Hollandsworth of Woodland, and Maryann King of Gridley, and his brothers, Elias Haro of Roseville, Aurelio Haro of Courtland, Miguel Haro of Paradise, Arthur Haro of Yuba City, Ernie Haro of Gridley, and a plethora of nieces and nephews.

In lieu of flowers, please make donations to the ARC or the Work Training Program.
