Edward Hazarabedian
June 7, 1958 - February 23, 2019 Resident of Moraga

Ed Hazarabedian passed away suddenly from complications of the pancreatic cancer he'd been diagnosed with just 11 days earlier. Thankfully, his pain was brief - only a few hours - but ours is lasting and immeasurable.
Ed was raised in Albany, California and graduated from Albany High in 1976, where he was a violinist and concertmaster of the school orchestra, an officer in the service organization DeMolay, and a member of Boy Scout Troop 12, earning the Eagle Scout rank.
He received his BS degree in Statistics from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1982, having also attended Robert Gordon's Institute of Technology in Aberdeen, Scotland when his family was living there. While at Cal, Ed was a member of the UC Rally Committee, an organization committed to the perpetuation of the spirit and traditions of the University of California, and was an active alumnus, assisting with the Cal Band's pre-game pyrotechnic display at Memorial Stadium for many years up until his passing. He enjoyed cheering on the Bears with the same Rally Committee alumni friends - some going back to the `70s - in their section at Memorial Stadium each fall. He was a true Golden Bear.
Ed's professional life was as an account executive with various tech companies in the Bay Area, but he also gave his time to the community as a coach to many of his children's sports teams and as an Assistant Scoutmaster in Boy Scout Troop 234. Sunday mornings were always spent playing pick-up basketball with his friends at Oakwood Athletic Club.
Ed leaves behind his wife of 31 years, Bonnie, his son, Zack, and daughter, Callie. Also surviving him are his father, Shavarsh, his brother, Greg (June), niece, Laura King, and nephew, Michael Sokalski. He was preceded in death by his mother, Lala.
He requested "A party. a BIG party" instead of a funeral, so all who knew Ed are invited to his Celebration of Life on Sunday, June 9 at the Oak Hill Park Ballroom, 3005 Stone Valley Road in Danville; program at 1 p.m. and refreshments to follow. Requested attire is casual and colorful (Cal Blue and Gold, aloha shirts, etc.)
