Edgar Banzon, age 73, passed away on December 20, 2020 (11:26 pm), at his residence in Louisville, Kentucky. Edgar was born on October 31, 1947, in Cebu City, Philippines, to the late Juanito Banzon, Sr. and Vidala (Bayot) Banzon.

He had extensive work experience that included Sales and Marketing, Roblex Engineering, then proceeded to work in Atlas Mining in DAS, Toledo City where he spent several years, as Purchasing Director, and as General Manager for the Atlas Construction Firm.
A man of principles, he would go out of his way to make sure everyone around him is well-taken cared of. Edgar was an extremely generous and private person who preferred surrounding himself with his family above all else, spending lazy days laughing and singing. To him, his family meant more than anything. Admired by many, he left a great impression through his kind demeanor. Until the very end of his life, he remained a very righteous person.
