Edward D. Magana
July 06, 1943 - July 08, 2017
Edward D. Magana has passed away peacefully at age 74. Born on July 6, 1943, in San Teodoro, Mindoro, Philippines, he became a longtime resident of Chicago where the sports (and drinks) were better. He courageously battled a myriad of health issues for many years with the hope he would some day see his beloved Chicago Cubs win it all. With his World Series hopes fulfilled, he left us on July 8, 2017.
He leaves behind many loved ones who will miss his selfless heart, countless stories and jokes, and contagious laugh including his children whom he loved deeply, Julie (Jamshid “Ali”) Pabarja, Jeanette (Armando) Topacio, and OJ (Mark); his grandchildren Patrick, Maria, Noah, Katrina, Sophia, and Aidan; many siblings, nieces, nephews, and cousins; and countless friends. Their lives have all been touched by his kindness and love.
Let’s celebrate Edward’s life. All are invited to gather for the Mass of Christian Burial on Thursday, July 20, 2017 at 9:30 am at SS. Peter & Paul Catholic Church, 36 N. Ellsworth St., Naperville. Interment will follow at SS. Peter & Paul Cemetery, corner of North Ave and N. Columbia St., Naperville. Friedrich-Jones Funeral Home & Cremation Services, Naperville, was entrusted with arrangements.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations can be made to the National Kidney Foundation.
