Edward Frances Ufalusi
September 30, 1935 - February 2, 2015
Edward passed away peacefully on February 2, 2015 at his Chandler home with his loving family by his side. Ed was born in Meriden, CT to John Ufalusi and Elizabeth Karhut Ufalusi and raised in Walllingford, CT. He graduated from St. Mary's HS and served honorably the US Army in Germany between 1956-1958, as a Radar Specialist. Fortunate for the Army, he was a phenomenal baseball player and served the team well! He married his loving wife in 1960 and began his career in computers and electronics at RCA Computer Division in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. Ed lived an adventurous life on the ocean in Florida before relocating their family to Arizona in 1973. He was an avid scuba diver and snow skier who loved the outdoors and nature. Ed continually engaged in life experiences to challenge himself and enjoyed weaving and sharing his wild tales. Ed built a third party computer service business in Tempe, Southwestern Computer Technologies, which was honored as the Tempe Small Business of the Year in 1991. He served his community as a life member of The Tempe Diablo's organization and loved engaging in service and shenanigans with his fellow members! His amazing energy earned him the name "The Energizer Bunny" thus his retirement was short-lived as he returned to work with Gila River Gaming. His love for a life adventurously lived and his sense of humor endeared him to all who knew Ed. His love and kindness was enormous and selflessly applied and appreciated by all. Ed is survived by his loving wife of 54 yrs Beatrice; along with his adoring children and grandchildren Kim Ufalusi and Austin; Kristin Szymanski and husband John, Chelsea and Brandon; Keira Ufalusi, Dante and Marley; and many loving in-laws, nieces and nephews. Memorial Service will be held Saturday February 28, 2015 11am @ Gila River-Wild Horse Shelde Bldg. 5718 W. North Loop Rd. Chandler, AZ 85226
