Edward Mercure, 48, currently living in Espanola, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on June 9, 2022 at Espanola Hospital. Edward is preceded in death by his Grandmother Floripe Mercure, Tia Ercilia, cousin but like a sister Jane Gallegos, Tio Mike Mercure and Madrina April Gallegos. Edward is survived by his loving daughter Mia Mercure, mother Virginia Mercure, sister Zita Mercure, nephew, but like a son Amos Pacheco, niece Autumn Abeyta, and numerous other relatives and friends. Edward was quiet but had a kind and gentle heart, all that knew him loved the jokes that he had and how he would light up a room when he was around. He enjoyed drives to the mountains, spending time with family, watching golf, enjoyed playing at casinos and always being surrounded by his daughter. The morning phone calls when they couldn’t be together, they spent hours laughing, talking about anything and everything was the highlight of his everyday. He is retired from Rio Arriba County Detention Center where he gave his time and dedication. He currently was a security guard for the Pojoaque Public Schools, which he enjoyed. Although Edward has passed and was called to our Lord before his time, he will always remain in our hearts forever.
