WILLARD - Our wonderful husband, father, grandfather, friend, Eddie Brimberry 58, passed away on Saturday, June 9, 2012 at his home surrounded by family and friends and rejoined his beautiful wife in heaven.
He was born March 28, 1954 in Price, Utah, a son of Clifford and Charlene Tucker Brimberry. Eddie married his sweetheart and best friend, Bonnie Strange on January 22, 1972 in Willard, Utah. She preceded him in death on October 6, 2011.
Eddie was talented in many ways and had many hobbies, which include camping, fishing, boating, hunting, snowmobiling, four wheeling, playing poker and most important hobby was spending time with his kids and grandkids. Eddie and Bonnie loved to spend most of their time at Cedar Bay Marina in Henry, Idaho which was their home away from home. Where family and friends gather every summer making memories around the campfires, fourth of July celebrations and where the best tall tales are told at "Totty Time". His spirit, smile and sense of humor was bigger than life and he always made people feel important. His life was so full of teaching others, and anybody that knew him knew that it was "Eddie's way or the highway",he loved his wife's cooking, especially Sunday dinners with his family.
Eddie for many years milked cows and baled hay for Jack Gordon, he also worked for WR Whites, had established Eddie Brimberry Construction, worked and retired from Vulcraft in 2010. Eddie has done a lot of service with his back hoe for friends and family. When help was needed Eddie was there! Eddie's work ethic was honored and respected by many.
