Obituary of EDWARD MANUEL RAPOSO
EDWARD M. RAPOSO
October 20, 1953 – June 17, 2023
It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of M. Edward Raposo on June 17, 2023 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He was born on October 20, 1953 in São Miguel, Azores. He was predeceased by his father, Manuel E. Raposo and mother Mariana Raposo.
Edward was a loving husband to Luisa, a devoted father to Jason (Célia), Chris (Tyler), Tony the dog, and a cherished grandfather to his beloved granddaughter Sofia. A brother to Josefine (Asterio), Maria, brother-in-law to Lurdes (Duarte), and a trusted, loving uncle to many nieces and nephews.
Edward, Eddy, “uncle bud”, “Mario”, touched so many lives. His kindness and willingness to give the shirt off his back to anyone defined him. He was happiest when he could help out any way he could, and always had stories or jokes to tell you. He loved being with his family, and had a big passion for fishing and music.
He was a wonderful husband, a great father, the best grandfather, and overall, an amazing human being.
In lieu of flowers, the family prefers donations to be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation in honor of Edward.
