Obituary of Edualdo Chacon

Edualdo Chacon

 

Edualdo Chacon, 60, of Great Barrington, MA and most recently of Schodack Landing, NY, died peacefully on January 29, 2021 at the home he shared with his partner, Lucian Hodges. The cause of death was cancer, which he faced with courage and grace.

Born January 23, 1961 in Brooklyn, NY, he was also known as Eduardo Chacon and affectionately as “Eddie.” He was the son of Carmen Suarez and Efrain Chacon, both originally of Puerto Rico. He was a loving and much loved son, brother, uncle, great uncle, cousin, friend, and spouse.

Eddie was employed for many years by Kendall Regional Hospital in Florida as a patient advocate.

He is survived by his siblings, Salvador Duprey of Newport News, VA, Moraima Arce of Great Barrington, MA, Billy Hernandez of Puerto Rico, Jesus Chacon of Brooklyn, NY, Efrain Chacon (his twin) of Columbia SC, Nelly Frances of Hollywood, FL, and Santos Chacon of Opa-locka, FL, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents and by his siblings Altemio Duprey of Miami, FL, Jose Diaz of Puerto Rico, and Maria Chacon of Hollywood, FL.

Eddie’s humor and wit, his passion for life, his great personal style, his fierce sense of justice, and his unwavering love and loyalty to family and friends will be greatly missed but remembered with joy.

            Every blade in the field –

            Every leaf in the forest –

            Lays down its life in its season

            As beautifully as it was taken up.

                                    Henry David Thoreau

  7. Hey Uncle Eddie,
    You truly don’t know how I’m missing you so much, but I know you are protecting me from heaven. I’m going to miss our phone calls so much when I call you for help or advice. You always tell me “Don’t worry about that person, they are loser.” I’m going to miss my shopping buddy, and how crazy we will be laughing and joking around while shopping. I remember that day the painting you gave me that’s in my house right now, how we had to put it on top of my little car and had to hold on the painting while driving. We did some crazy things together. How you will tell me “You are my favorite” and the biggest smile it will put on my face. I was glad I was able to see you in person before it was your time and how we spoke on the phone on the last day as well. I will never forget on my graduation you was jumping up and down because, you was so proud of me getting my degree. You was smiling ear to ear because, I made it and you so proud. I know you, Abulea, and Titi are sitting up there cooking rice and beans while dancing around. I will always love you and you will be in my heart forever. You are my favorite uncle and will always be that. Take care Uncle Eddie and I love you. And, yes I know I’m your favorite niece. Until we meet again xoxoxo

  11. To my dear beloved brother,
    There is not one day that goes by that I don’t think about you and how much I miss you. There have been a lot of times that I want to pick up the phone and dial your number just to hear your voice and talk to you. But them I, realized you are not going to answer. I thank God each and everyday for such an amazing, caring and unique brother. You was and will always be an amazing husband, son, brother, uncle, cousin, and friend.
    I, remember the first time you took me to a club it was the best time of my life. I was so excited because it was with you, my big brother and we had such a great time. Eddie, I thank God for each and every moment he allowed us to spend together. You always told me thank you for being here with me, you are my baby sister, and I love you so much don’t ever forget that.
    I enjoy our last conversation so much and not knowing it was going to be our last one and the last time we told each other “I love you,” right before you went to sleep. You will always be in my heart but I, know you are with mom, dad, and Maria looking after me and the family. Eddie thank you for choosing me and allowing me to spend all that time with you.
    I missed you and love you always. RIP my brother.
    Love you always your baby sister Nelly
