Edward was born in Saginaw on July 29, 1952 to the late Antonio and Josephine (Castonan) Ortega. He graduated from Saginaw High in 1971. While in school, he met the beautiful Rosalva Garibay. The high school sweethearts dated, fell in love and were united in marriage on June 10, 1974 at the Saginaw County Court House. Together, they shared over 50 years and countless memories. Edward loved meeting new people, and never had a bad thing to say about anyone. He was a man of few words, but always had wonderful thoughts. Edward had a big heart and loved everyone, especially children. He was a family man through and through. Edward was a devout Catholic and a faithful parishioner of Christ the Good Shepherd Parish. He loved his church family. Edward enjoyed going for walks, camping and being outside. Nothing was more important to him than his family. To carry on his legacy, Edward leaves his wife of 47 years, Rose; his daughter, Catherine (Ricky) Tyson; his grandchildren, Shawn Drake, Felicia Tyson, Rickie Alvarado, and Paige Tyson, and eleven great-grandchildren, who were the lights of his life.
