Obituary for Eduardo Epimenio Saiz

After an all too short battle with an aggressive form of cancer, Ed passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family. Ed was born and raised in Tesuque, New Mexico, and after graduating from Santa Fe High School in 1960, he moved to California.

His 38 year career in the Fire Service began in the Air Force where he served proudly. After working as a Federal Firefighter, he was hired in Hayward in 1971. There he served as Union President for Local 1909, in which his greatest achievement was securing Binding Arbitration for his fellow Firefighters. He was always looking out for the “Little Guy”. He served as Fire Marshall in Daly City, where he helped shape the Fire Prevention Bureau. He served as the President of the Northern California Fire Prevention Officers in 1995. He retired in 2000.

Ed was a loving Husband, Father, Grandfather, Uncle and Friend. He was a proud Democrat, who believed in Labor, Equality and Fairness to all. He was an avid boxing fan, and was even chosen to pick up Mohammad Ali from the airport when in the Bay Area - a definite highlight for Ed. He enjoyed gardening and working in his yard. He was an enthusiastic member of Voces de Santa Fe and the Knights of Columbus, where he especially enjoyed helping run Bingo night.

Ed’s jovial nature and fun loving spirit has left a void in our family, however, the many meaningful memories of him will live on forever.

He will be painfully missed…
