Duarte (Eddie) Luis passed away on March 31, 2012 after a year-long battle with AL Amyloidosis. He was 60 years old. After a quick diagnosis, and only a few weeks on the heart transplant list, Eddie received a donor heart on April 13, 2011. We were so happy that everything was working out so well and we were so optimistic that the future held only good things. After fully recuperating from the heart transplant, Eddie began chemotherapy treatments in November, 2011. Unfortunately, Eddie was hospitalized shortly after the treatments and was never able to come home.
Eddie and his wife Marsha loved to travel. They went on several cruises to the Caribbean, trips to Florida to visit family, Las Vegas, New Orleans, Canada, and the occasional weekend trip to Foxwoods. Eddie leaves his wife Marsha, their dog Bella, and lots of extended family and friends who miss him tremendously.
