Obituary for Edward Fulford Brodie

EDWARD FULFORD BRODIE, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, July 16, 2005. He was born in Kansas City, Missouri on June 25, 1927 and was preceded in death by his wife Gaye Brodie, his son Douglas Brodie, and his parents Francis and Thyzra Brodie. Memorial Services will be held at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, 5308 Buffalo Speedway at Bissonnet, Houston, Saturday, July 23 at 10:00 a.m. Rev. Jeffery H. Smith Pastor, and Rev. Dr. Douglas Harper, Jr. Pastor Emeritus will officiate. Traditional Scottish attire is encouraged.

Ed's memory will live on in the hearts of his many friends; his sister Sheila Brodie; his first wife Peggy Brodie Taylor; his daughters Diane and Trish; his son Bruce and his wife Kathy; as well as his grandchildren Daniel, Jean, Jeffrey, David and Elizabeth, and her husband Christopher Joyner. Ever caring for others, Ed donated his earthly body to the University of Texas Health Science Center, in lieu of internment.

Instead of flowers, the family requests donations to Pastor's Discretionary Fund at St. Andrews or to the American Red Cross, Houston, Tx. Ed, a Retired Army LTC, was involved with several hereditary societies including: Sons of the American Revolution, Sons of Union Veterans of the Civil War, and Sons of Confederate Veterans. He was a CPA, retired from Cooper's & Lybrand, the Convenor and Chieftain of the Clan Brodie Association in America; was a past Chieftain of the Heather & Thistle Society, and with his wife Gaye, supported the Houston Highland Games Association. They belonged to Volkswalk of America, walking in all 50 states and the Canadian provinces; and were Red Cross volunteers. Ed was an Elder and Intercessor at St Andrew's Presbyterian Church, active in the New Covenant Presbytery, and also Bible Study teacher at Terrace Retirement Community where he resided. Ed's charity work included Reading for the Blind on Public Radio and playing Santa for the Children's Hospital. Ed was smart, funny, generous and loved by all who knew him.
