Edmund 'Ed' Frank Armogida
The Guest Book is expired.
was born on April 4, 1944 in Canton, Ohio and passed away in Raleigh, N.C. on Nov. 5, 2013. He came to North Carolina as a school teacher to facilitate the end of segregation in public schools. Teaching was his passion and many students of Carnage Middle and Sanderson High Schools, both in Raleigh, have never forgotten the ways Mr. Armogida touched their lives. He also coached football there for many years and loved the opportunity coaching gave him to reach even more students. Ed was a devoted member of St. Raphael's Catholic Church in Raleigh where his passion for teaching continued. He joyfully led many Bible studies and served his fellow parishioners in various ways. He took Bible study very seriously and was adamant about teaching the life of Christ. Ed was also a member of the Knights of Columbus.
He is survived by his loving wife, Delores Armogida and their love for each other was evident until the very end. They would have celebrated their anniversary on November 6. He is also survived by his son, Nicholas Armogida; daughter-in-law, Candace and four grandchildren, Lathan, Jordyn, Cole and Jake Armogida. The children will always cherish the time they had with him and are especially thankful for a week- long trip to the Outer Banks in September, where some of their last memories were made. Additionally, he is survived by his daughter, Gabby Britt and her family. Ed is preceded in death by his parents, Edmund James and Mary Marcia Armogida.
The Armogida family would love to hear your stories and memories during the visitation, which will be held at Renaissance Funeral Home on Sunday, Nov. 10, 2013 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The funeral mass will take place at St. Raphael's Catholic Church on Monday, Nov. 11, 2013 at 1 p.m. In lieu of flowers, we ask that donations be made in Ed's name to Bonnie's Book Foundation at bonniesbooks.org.
