In Celebration of

Eduardo Ortiz de Zarate

December 23, 1926 -  January 22, 2022

We are saddened to announce the passing of our dear father, husband, grandfather and friend. He was a kind and gentle soul. Always smiling, an eternal optimist to the very end. He loved to research, always learning and looking for solutions to new and old problems. He had a deep knowledge and understanding of many topics, and was at his best when sharing his theories and ideas. He loved his inspirational poetry, and his jokes. Forever we will take with us his philosophy of life – keep trying, you can do anything you set your mind to, don’t stop dreaming and NEVER give up!

With lots of love: his wife Alicia, his children Alicia (husband Siamak), Ivonne (husband David), and Eddie; his grandchildren Andreu, Soraya, Roxana, Kayvan, Elizabeth, Alec, Thomas and Jan.
You are always in our hearts….

Nous sommes attristés d’annoncer le décès de notre cher père, mari, grand-père et ami. C'était une âme gentille et douce. Toujours souriant et optimiste jusqu'à la fin. Il aimait apprendre et faire des recherches, et trouver des solutions à de nouveaux et anciens problèmes. Il avait une connaissance et une compréhension approfondit de nombreux sujets et était à son meilleur lorsqu'il partageait ses théories et ses idées. Il aimait sa poésie inspirante et ses blagues. Pour toujours, nous emporterons avec nous sa philosophie de vie - continuez d'essayer, vous pouvez faire tout ce que vous voulez, n'arrêtez pas de rêver et n'abandonnez JAMAIS !

Avec grand amour: son épouse Alicia, ses enfants Alicia (mari Siamak), Ivonne (mari David) et Eddie ; ses petits-enfants Andreu, Soraya, Roxana, Kayvan, Elizabeth, Alec, Thomas et Jan.
Tu es toujours dans nos cœurs….

Dear Mrs. Ortiz, Alicia, Siamac, Soraya, Roxana, Kayvan and Alec,
Jim and I are sad to learn about the loss of your husband, father and grandfather and wish we could offer our deepest sympathy in person. Mr. Ortiz was a gentle man who embraced life and the future with an optimism that was contagious. We feel so fortunate to have many wonderful memories of his kind smile, his generous wit, his animated conversation — all driven by his ceaseless curiosity and belief in the future. What a legacy he has created through all of you.
With love,
Lisa and Jim

My tío Lalo will be always remembered. He was my Mother's brother. During my early childhood, he teached me so many wonderful things.
