Edward was born and raised in Worcester son of the late H. Clifford and Evelina (Williams) Brothers. He graduated from Commerce High School and later was called to active duty with the 10th Marine Signal Company out of Worcester when the Korean War started in July of 1950.

Ed worked at Universal Braiding Mills in Worcester for his father, and then worked for over 20 years for Iandoli’s Markets as a Meat Cutter before he retired. He had lived in Auburn for 29 years before moving to Brookfield and then returning to Shrewsbury in 1994.

Ed and his wife spent their winter months in Carlsbad, California for 25 years and the last few years were spent in Florida where he walked the beaches. He enjoyed spending time with his entire family, playing cards and a round of golf was always a good thing…..

He leaves his loving wife of 63 years, Jean E. (Marvin) Brothers; his two daughters, Linda J. Mahlert and her husband Gordon of Auburn and Deborah L. Mahlert and her husband Mark of Auburn; eight grandchildren and several great grandchildren; nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his son, Douglas E.

The Brothers Family would like to extend special thanks to the entire staff at the Life Care Center of Auburn for their compassionate care that was given to Ed and his family during his stay there.
