Edward was born September 24, 1947, in Salinas, California to Joe and Delores Rojas, who preceded him in death. Edward entered into eternal life on August 24, 2011. He served his country in the U.S. Air Force from 1967 to 1971, and after being honorably discharged, attended San Francisco State University as both an undergraduate and a graduate student. While living in Los Angeles, Edward worked for Birk's Jewelers in Westwood as a certified gemologist, and became an avid L.A. Dodger's fan. After moving to Davis over twenty years ago, he became a golf enthusiast, working for both El Macero Golf Club and Mountain Valley Golf Center in Woodland. Edward was a kind-hearted and caring man who surrounded himself with family and friends. He was a fine, non-judgmental man, always loyal and generous to those he loved. His optimism in all situations will be remembered and forever cherished. Edward will truly be missed by all of those who knew him. Although he will no longer be with us on this Earth, we will always have him in our hearts.
