Dr. Edward Taras of Woodland Hills, CA passed away peacefully at home with all his family at his bedside at the age of 80 on Friday, April 13, 2014.

Born 12/29/33 in Montreal, Canada, Ed moved to Woodland Hills in 1967 where he started a successful ObGyn practice.   In the next 35 years, Ed delivered thousands of babies.  A pioneer of natural childbirth, Ed was one of the first doctors to allow expectant fathers into the delivery room.

In his free time, Ed enjoyed good food, dancing and travel. His adventures took him to six continents where he formed lasting friendships and cherished memories. Above all else, Ed enjoyed being with his family and friends on whom he made a deep and meaningful impact. Ed is survived by his loving wife of 49 years, his sister, three children and their spouses and eight grandchildren. He was truly one-of-a-kind!

The funeral will be at Eden Memorial Park, Mission Hill, CA,  on Sunday, 4/13/14 @ 10:00 AM.  In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to www.tinyurl.com/EdTaras in Ed’s name.
