Edward Joseph Bloxom passed away May 9, 2017. He died peacefully in Colorado Springs, Colorado at his mother's home. Born in Dalhart, Texas, Ed leaves many good friends in Denver and San Francisco. Through the years, Ed worked at AT&T, Lucent Technologies, New College, various substance abuse treatment programs, and was most recently self-employed as the founder of the China Cowboy. He met many of his SF friends while working at the Muscle System Gym. He was an avid reader, cat lover, and a close confidant of many, with a very gracious, loveable and loving presence. He was also a keen observer of people (including himself), and used his wicked sense of humor to help all of us put things in perspective. Ed was a "fighter" and longtime survivor, having overcome many debilitating health issues. He spent the last five years of his life caring for his aging mother. Ed, you will be sorely missed and remembered with great fondness.
