Obituary For Edward Joseph Brown, III

Edward Joseph "Eddie Joe" Brown III, age 84 of Lima, passed away Sunday, December 17, 2023, at 2:34 p.m. at his residence.

Eddie Joe was born June 3, 1939, in Lima to Edward Jr. and Mildred (Miller) Brown, who preceded him in death. On September 13, 1958, he married the love of his life, Sharon (Thomas) Brown, who preceded him in death in 2014.

He attended Perry Schools and was a 1958 graduate of Shawnee High School. After graduation, he worked at Kohler Buckeye as an Ice Cream Delivery Man and he then went on to work as a Machinist at Teledyne until his retirement. Eddie Joe worked multiple part-time jobs including an Assembler at Wal-Mart, in the Plumbing Department at Lowe's and as a Delivery Man at Daryl & Daryl's. He was a former member at Moose Lodge #199 and Eagles Aerie #370 and he was an avid and talented woodworker. Eddie Joe enjoyed watching westerns, taking golf cart rides and a nice glass of Glenlivet. He was an avid Ohio State Buckeyes fan and he loved watching NASCAR; he even had the opportunity to do a ride around on the track. Most of all, he loved spending time with his family, especially camping, traveling and spending time with his grandkids.

Eddie Joe is survived by his children, Lisa (Jim Estill) Zeisloft, Kimberly (Michael) Loughrin, Michael (Kelly) Brown, Kevin (Cami) Brown and Kellie (Larry Warner) Smelcer; grandchildren, Brittani (Shawn) Castle, Bridgette (Josh) Norway, Zack Smelcer, Livie Smelcer, Jake Loughrin, Jaret Brown, Madison (Tanner Hindall) Brown, Jaycie Brown and Jensen Brown; great-grandchildren, Anthoney Zeisloft, Hunter Castle, Kenzie Castle, Wyatt Norway, Jysie Norway, Brantley Hennon, Amelia Hindall and Cooper Hennon and his nephew, Dennis (Anna) Brown.

In addition to his parents and wife, he is preceded in death by his sister, Janet (Bill) Estep and his brother, Gary (Donelda) Brown.

The Brown family would like to extend a heart-felt thank you to St. Rita's Speech Therapy Department and Hospice for all of their help and kindness.
