Very sad to read that Eddy passed. RIP
In loving memory of the late Edward Mbanu who sadly passed away on 18th December 2014
Edward was born in Newcastle on 10th July 1973 and had a happy childhood spent in Netherton and then Eastfield, Peterborough.
He attended Thorpe Primary School with two of his brothers, Alex and Lawrence, then went on to Jack Hunt secondary school, followed by the Regional College. Ed treasured the lifelong friends he made at both school and college.
Ed studied for a degree at the University of North London and then went on to gain a Masters from Birbeck College. After 10 years studying and working in London, Ed moved back to Peterborough in 2004, bought a house and joined Anglian Water.
Outside of education and work, Ed loved reading up on his Nigerian heritage and made several trips to his father's village as a young man. As well as being a keen cook, Ed had a love for the outdoors, developed from a young age spending time in Ferry Meadows and at his grandparents' home in the Yorkshire countryside. He particularly enjoyed photography and fishing and took his youngest brother out to make his first big catch.
Ed was a wonderful uncle to four nieces and two nephews and spent many hours making up games, stories and nicknames for them. He was looking forward to taking his youngest nephew fishing in years to come.
Ed died in a road accident on 18th December 2014 and his family are devastated by their loss. He was a dearly loved son, brother and uncle and his family will continue to cherish their memories of him.
