Edgard Quiroga passed away peacefully Monday evening, April 20, at his home. Julian, his oldest son, and Carol Aubrey were by his side. A month earlier, on March 20th, he had celebrated his 85th birthday.

Edgard found out a year ago that a tumor had returned where his left kidney had been removed many years ago. He chose not to have an operation. A few months ago he started having pain in his left leg that worsened and on Friday before Easter he had an MRI. Easter weekend he lost the use of both his legs. On Monday the results of the MRI showed that the tumor had grown and the cancer had spread to his spinal column. He began home hospice.

Things progressed quickly as Edgard had hoped. He did not want to linger. Saturday morning Edgard was semi-conscious, as Julian and Carol stayed by his side all day. Jason, Carol and Edgard’s youngest son who lives in New Mexico, wrote him a letter that Carol read to him several times, since it was hard to know when he was present. Edgard looked at peace during the three days he was semi-conscious. His breathing remained easy and calm. At the end, he took several deep breaths, opened his eyes wide for a few seconds, and closed his mouth in a smile. As Julian remarked, it was a good death.

Edgard’s body will be buried in a simple shroud at Prairie Creek Preservation Cemetery, a green cemetery in Gainesville, Florida, Wednesday, April 29th at 12:30 pm. He will be in the Forest section, next to a Sparkleberry tree. Carol and Julian will not be present but plan to visit at some future time when Jason can be with them.

Edgard greatly appreciated and enjoyed the spiritual dialogue and exploration he found in the Theosophical Society classes and looked forward each week to attending. He also derived much joy and nourishment from sharing his own classes. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Theosophical Society would be appreciated.

Blessings to all who knew him.

Carol Aubrey
