Edwin 'Ed' Brothers

Edwin "Ed" Brothers, 73, of Monticello, passed away at 12:19 am, Sunday, January 12, 2020 in Plymouth, Indiana.

Ed was born on May 18, 1946 in Lafayette to the late Archie Edwin and Esther (Anderson) Brothers. On October 28, 1978 he married the former Judy Call in Portage, Indiana and she survives.

Ed was a 1964 graduate of Twin Lakes High School and served in the U.S. Army National Guard. He attended Indiana State University and also Purdue University. He was the owner and operator of Brothers Plumbing and Heating in Monticello.

He was an active member of the First Presbyterian Church of Monticello where he served as an Elder, sang in the choir, and served on facility needs. Ed was strong in his faith and was committed to the church and Tuesday morning Bible studies.

He was involved with the local Boy Scouts, enjoyed golf, and played church league dart ball. At one time, he enjoyed bowling, but as a business owner it was difficult to participate on leagues. Above all else, Ed cherished time spent with his wife, children, but most especially, his grandchildren.
