Eddie was born March 4, 1929 in Silver City, New Mexico. Eddie was a hard-worker and provider from an early age.  From the time that he delivered newspapers on his roller skates in Ft. Bayard to his years of service in the United States Navy to his four decades of service in the mines, he demonstrated tenacity, strength and dedication to any job or task he encountered.  He was known for his strength of will, loyalty and ingenuity.  Perhaps his greatest achievements came in his role as a family man.  His titles were son, brother, husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and uncle; but his roles were that of provider, friend, protector, teacher, dreamer, chemist, scientist, engineer, nursemaid, dressmaker, dancer, mechanic, storyteller and general super hero. Mr. Chavez was generous to a fault and anyone who knew him need not go without food, shelter or be lonely.

In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to Life Quest, 907 N Pope St, Silver City, NM 88061.  Bright Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements, “Traditional Services and Care for your family and friends”, 210 W.
