Edward Bouriaque joined his loved ones in heaven on Friday, June 8th. He was a man of God who wanted everyone to know that Jesus was worth having as a friend. He believed that all man had to do to be saved was to repent of their sins and truly believe in the Lord Jesus Christ of the Bible. Jesus Christ was his best friend and his favorite thing to do was to learn about Him. His second favorite thing to do was to teach people, so he served as a school teacher for many years even after he “retired.” He didn’t end his teaching at school. He would sit down and teach his kids and grandkids many different things. He is survived by his children David Bouriaque and his wife Elinor, Joel Bouriaque and his wife Sommer, Jonathan Bouriaque and his wife Kyong-Hwa and Joy Bouriaque Yakovlev and her husband Andrey. His quiver was full and he was greatly blessed with fifteen grandkids and two great grand kids. He will be missed greatly by both friends and family. His Funeral will be held at New Life Worship Center in Benson, AZ at 10:00 am Monday the 18th.
