Edwin Nieves

January 2, 1939 - October 13, 2021

Day-o day-o daylight come and me want to go home!-beetle juice (his favorite song).

Edwin 82, was loved my many. Annoyed by a few and although he was many things, he was the living embodiment that adulting is hard. Life is hard, so spread love where and when you can. Stick up for yourself don’t let no one tell you who you are. Look “wifty” and work hard, be true. These are just some of the life lessons we learned because of him or from him. He was preceded by 9 kids: Maria, Eddie, Kenny, Timmy, Nancy, Steven, Jaimie, Kelly, and Angela. He has 26 grand kids, and 21 great-grand kids. He loved us all in his own way and was surrounded by loved ones during his passing. While he wished he had done more, been more, and had more time with his 11 siblings and huge family thereafter he lived 82 long years. Through his suffering, our suffering and the suffering of the world we would like to offer everyone one last advice from Dad: you worry you die, you don’t worry you die anyways! He wanted all of us close or far to know he loved us and he was truly sorry. Please if you’re reading this or are his family, take the time you have now to say you love each other, your sorry, to hug and kiss more, be a little kinder, and in his words “take it easy”. We miss you dad and will never forget you.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, October 16th from 2:00 – 4:00 at Altmeyer Funeral Home – Maestas Chapel, 1801 Baltic Avenue, Virginia Beach, 23451.

A funeral service will follow at 4:00 PM, with Donald Waltz of Heartland Hospice officiating. Condolences may be left below.
