Edward Lachlan Bremner died peacefully on July 6, 2018 after 87 years of living and enjoying life. He was a doting husband to Janet, his loving wife of 61 years, who predeceased him in March of 2012. Ed was born on July 23, 1930 in Schenectady, New York, was the only son of Nellie and Cecil Bremner. "Eddie" attended Fort Hamilton High School in Brooklyn, class of 1948.

Growing up, Ed lived on 82nd Street in Brooklyn and worked every day stocking shelves at a local grocery store. He lived across the street from Janet Moen and were best friends, fell in love, and were married on December 30, 1950. During their years of marriage, they lived in Brooklyn, NY, Hatboro, PA, Indianapolis, Buffalo Grove, IL, and Carmel, IN. Ed was employed by Royal Globe Insurance Company of New York for 43 years. After his retirement from Royal, Ed and Janet traveled the United States counseling motor home owners on insurance coverage which led to ten years of fun, meeting new friends and visiting all 50 states.

Ed was an avid volunteer and enjoyed engaging with people on homeowner associations, church groups, Habitat for Humanity builds, and as a hospital volunteer at St. Vincent Carmel. Even with those commitments, he made sure that he never missed one of his children's or grandchildren's special events and always had his camera at the ready.

Ed is survived by his three children; Roy(Sharon) Bremner of Westfield, Jim(Gina) Bremner of Indianapolis, and Ellen (Mike) Valentine of Cary, IL. Ed was blessed with seven grandchildren, Sarah (Mike) Webster, Russell (Dana) Bremner, Matthew (Carley) Bremner, David ( Shawn) Valentine, Lindsey (Fred) Martinez, Joshua Bremner, and Laura Valentine; and eight great grandchildren, Claire, Andrew, Crew, Lucas, Adele, Reid, Maddie, Rylee.

Ed spent his last years at The Barrington of Carmel, IN, where he enjoyed life and many friendships, and the family extends heartfelt thanks to all of his friends and the staff. Calling will be held at Leppert Mortuary - Nora chapel, 740 E. 86th Street, Indianapolis on Thursday, July 12, 2018 from 1:30 - 3:00 PM, with a short service to follow. In lieu of flowers, tribute gifts may be directed to Great Lakes Caring Hospice.

Roy, James, Ellen, and Families,

I was so sorry to hear of Ed's (my godfather) passing. I remember fondly many great times with him and the family at Candlewood Lake, Ocean City, Hatboro, and Brooklyn. I even remember watching the Brooklyn Dodgers on TV with your grandfathers! Always the gentleman, Ed fills a warm space in my heart. My sincere sympathy to you all.

Lake time visits w/ Mr. B were such a treat! In between his “list of house projects” for young “James”, he would take the time to get caught up on our family, offer his thoughts on current events, and discuss any other topic you’d like. Always positive, always animated, and truly entertaining! He’ll be missed for sure but will remain a staple memory for all of us lakeside!
