Edward Murillo

February 13, 1933 - October 21, 2017

Edward Murillo, 84, passed peacefully away on Oct. 21, 2017, surrounded by his loving family.

 Born Feb. 13, 1933, in San Marcos, Texas, to parents, Fausto and Maria (Rubio) Murillo, Eddie graduated from San Marcos High School and served in the US Air Force during the Korean Conflict. After returning to Texas, he married Ophelia Cruz on Aug. 31, 1957, at the Basilica of the National Shrine of the Little Flower.

 Eddie’s strong work ethic carried him through his career as a hairstylist at Vogue, supervisor for Swift & Co., and as an employee at the Northside ISD. His commitment to God and the Catholic faith included his proud role as a Fourth Degree Knights of Columbus as well as his and Ophelia’s membership in the Guadalupana Auxiliary and other services to St. Dominic’s Catholic Church of San Antonio.

 Eddie loved God, his family, and the simple things. Whether spending time with loved ones, caring for his red truck, or watching the Spurs, he took joy in the many small moments that make up life.

 Preceded in death by his wife Ophelia, “Big Popo” is survived by his daughters and spouses: Cathy and Kevin Lyman of San Marcos, Texas; Patricia and Mark Gonzalez of Frisco, Texas; Sandy and Chuck Farrow of Kyle, Texas; grandchildren, Ariel, Ethan, James, John, Jessica, Nikki, Elyssa, Josh, and Kyle; great grandchildren, Leo, Evan, Madeline, and Brayden; sister, Eva Sanchez; sister-in-law, Odelia Amaya; and the special friend of his life, Annie Trevino.

 The family is deeply thankful for the care and compassion given to Eddie by Independence Hill Assisted Living of San Antonio, Doctors Saleh Jaafar, Juan Garza, Patrick Grogan, Parmish Kohli, Daniel Katselnik, Jennifer Brody, and the staff of Christus Sister Mary Hospice.
