DIAZ BASUALTO , Eduardo Segundo

July 30, 1925 – Valparaiso, Chile
December 29, 2016 – Calgary , Alberta

Eduardo Diaz-Basualto beloved husband, father and grandfather passed away on December 29, 2016 at the age of 91 years.

Eduardo was born on July 30th in the beautiful port city of Valparaiso,Chile. He grew up in a household with five brothers – Luis, Jorge, Felix, Guillermo, Carlos and two sisters – Rosa and Eliana. They were a very close and loving family who liked to spend time together celebrating life and creating memories. In 1951, Eduardo married his life-long partner, Blanca Pena, and together they raised a family of five children – Lalo, Rosa, Fernando, Valentina and Mariela. Eduardo was also the best grandfather to Paola, Carol, Catalina, Claudia, Paulina, Gabriel and seven great-grandchildren.

Family was very important to Eduardo and he was happiest surrounded by his children and grandchildren. In Chile, Eduardo spent many years operating his own successful business, a convenience store in El barrio. He was always generous and helpful to his family, friends and community. In 1986 Eduardo, Blanca and Mariela made the decision to move to Canada to join Lalo and his family. They settled first in Medicine Hat, Alberta and later moved to Calgary in 1989. Eduardo loved listening to music, singing, dancing and spending time enjoying these activities with his extended family. He was an enthusiastic soccer fan and spent many hours working in his gardens. Eduardo was valued, respected and loved by all who knew him and he will be forever in our hearts.
