Edwin graduated from Sprecklesville Elementary and Maui High School, and entered the military service in 1961. After being honorably discharged from the U.S. Army in 1964, he moved to Honolulu. He was a shop fabricator for Screen Products, Inc./Alii Glass and Metal.
As a young man, Edwin enjoyed fishing and golfing. His work was important to him, especially mentoring the younger workers. Family times were cherished, with regular visits home for holidays and milestone celebrations.

Hoover, and Annette (Michael) Arakawa both of Pukalani and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, Masuro and Gladys Mijo, and his sister Dorothy Mijo of California.
