Edward was born April 25th, 1981, in Salt Lake City, Utah. At the age of 8 he was placed in foster care with John & Claudia Thomas. They loved and cared for Ed until Claudia’s passing, and John’s health declined and was no longer able to take care of him. In 2010 he was taken into guardianship by Benito Martinez and since that day the Martinez family took him in as a family member. 2019 the Martinez family opened their own ResHab Agency to help support Ed and numerous friends. The Martinez family wanted to ensure that Ed’s rights were no longer violated. Ed was a loving and fun individual, he enjoyed rides with his staff, he loved strawberry milkshakes, and he loved his cheeseburgers. Ed was extremely fond of his sister Olivia; he enjoyed his visits to the office but he especially liked when staff would take him to watch little league baseball and football.
Ed is survived by his Martinez Family, Benito, Angelita, Junior, Olivia, Louis Noe, and Abraham. He was preceded by John & Claudia Thomas, Ed’s foster parents.
