Edwin Allan Huntington (A.K.A Ed or Eddie) passed away on the early afternoon of September 20th, 2020 at the age of twenty five. Edwin was born on August 22, 1995 in Southern California. He grew up in the Altadena, CA area. At age fifteen Edwin came out to Kansas City, MO where he chose to settle and call home for his teenage and adult life. Edwin graduated high school from Southwest Early College Campus High School with an associates of arts degree from Midwest Community College in 2013. Edwin was a devoted employee at the Legoland and Sea Life Discovery Center with his final role there being an Admissions Manager.
Eddie was a kind, loving, and generous person who brought magic everywhere he went. At heart, he was truly a big kid. The accomplishments he'd probably tell you were his biggest in life was becoming an Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America, making it into a full time manager position at Legoland, finding God and becoming Catholic as an adult, and marrying his wife, Megan. Edwin loved dogs. He was a very happy dog dad to him and Megan's rescued dog Lucke. Edwin's dream in life was to become a loving father and to open a magic shop where he could teach children leadership and public speaking skills through the art of magic. He loved being a part of a community and helped anyone in need. He was a thoughtful, playful, and loyal friend, husband, brother, and son.
In May of 2020, Edwin was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. He went through treatment at both St. Luke's Hospital and The University of Kansas Hospital in the Kansas City area. Edwin was a brave, strong, and light hearted patient. He did not let his cancer bring him down or prevent him from achieving the goals of becoming Catholic or getting married. Edwin brought laughter and love to his entire medical team. He was beyond thankful for the opportunity to receive a bone marrow transplant on September 4th, 2020 in which his half sister, Allison Lewis, was his bone marrow donor. Edwin's battle with cancer truly exemplified his ability to remain calm, cool, and collected during the most difficult times, as well as being a perfect example of someone who remained thankful and positive during times where it felt the most easiest to wallow in self pity, anger, or fear.
Edwin was an accepting man who valued everyone for who they were no matter what walk of life he met them in. He blessed the lives of all who met him. Though he has physically left this world, there will be pieces of his spirit that will live on in all who had a relationship with him. He is survived by all of his dear friends, especially his work family at Legoland and Sealife, his wife Megan Dux Huntington, his brother and sister Elijah Huntington and Allison Lewis, his parents Darrel Huntington and Iscela Donohoe Huntington, as well as grandparents and several aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Edwin's primary funeral service will be held on Thursday October 1, 2020 at 10:00 A.M. at St. Elizabeth's Catholic Church (2 E. 75th St. Kansas City, MO 64114).
