Edwin G. Galarza, 63, of Stamford, Connecticut, passed away on March 29, 2020 at Stamford Hospital.

Edwin was born on April 17, 1956, in Quito, Ecuador, son of the late Emma and Reimberto Galarza, the ninth of ten children. After completing his education in Ecuador, Edwin started his financial career as co-owner of Galarza Asociados, where he worked for 15 years before moving to Stamford, CT in 1988 with his wife and oldest daughter. His son and youngest daughter were born in Stamford. He joined TechnoServe, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting poverty in developing countries, where he played various roles, including Acting CFO, over the next 30 years.

Those who came to know Edwin will remember him most for his enormous heart. He never hesitated to give his time and effort, love and support. He shared his infinite wisdom on seemingly any topic, without ever asking for anything in return. Edwin’s kindness radiated through his warm hugs, contagious smile and positive energy. He had a way of making everyone around him feel special, welcomed and appreciated. Above everything, Edwin was a devoted family man - a loving husband, father, grandpa, brother, uncle, cousin and friend. His loss leaves a tremendous void in the lives of many, but also a far-reaching legacy that will never be forgotten.

Edwin is survived by his wife of 36 years, Mabelle Montufar-Galarza; his daughter and son-in law, Jennifer and Darnell Michel and granddaughter Sophia Reign; son and daughter-in-law, Christopher and Pamela Galarza and granddaughter Emma Riley; daughter, Amy Galarza; sisters, Nery Maldonado and Laura Arteaga; brothers, Mario, Nelson, Cesar, Enrique and Marco Galarza. In addition to his parents, Edwin is preceded in death by sister, Cecilia and brother, Oswaldo Galarza.

In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation in his honor to A memorial in celebration of Edwin’s life will be scheduled at a later date.
