Edward A. Funnell, of Crown Point, IN passed peacefully at home with his wife and brother by his side Sunday, January 7, 2018. He was a beloved son, brother, husband, father, uncle and grampy.

Ed was a class person who, if you knew him, you would be amazed at his wit, his humor, his intelligence was way above most, and most of all how he loved his family. He had a Bachelor of Science degree from Indiana Institute of Technology and worked as a lead operator at Veolia Water. He also served our country as a medical specialist in the United States Army. 

Ed was born December 17, 1959 in South Bend, IN to Larry D and Marialyce (Harrison) Funnell, who preceded him in death on September 3, 2017 and May 30, 1998, respectively. On June 8, 1985, Ed married Kitty "Katie"  Frye, who survives. Their marriage was a true love story. Ed is also survived by his children Larry Funnell of Brooksville, FL, Tammy (Paul) Michelbrink of Aurora, CO and Melissa Funnell of South Bend, IN; seven grandchildren; and brother Jeffrey P (Barbara) Funnell of Niles, MI.
