Ed “Grizz” Carpenter, 63 of Brooks, Iowa entered eternal rest Tuesday, August 22, 2023 at his home. A memorial gathering, with family receiving friends, will be held from 6-8 PM, Saturday, August 26, 2023 at Pearson Family Funeral Service & Cremation Center in Corning, Iowa. Memorial contributions may be directed to the family in Ed’s name.

Edward James Carpenter was born in LeMars, Iowa January 9, 1960, the son of Darrold Edward and Jennie Mae (Turner) Carpenter. Ed was raised and attended school in LeMars until the 3rd grade when the family moved to Sac City, Iowa. The family later moved to Corning in 1975 where Ed started High School. As Ed became a young adult, he became affectionately known as “Grizz”.

Grizz had a passion for mechanics and all things mechanical. He began working for Skelly in Corning where he learned some of his mechanic ability. He would later work for Travis Iron Company and off and on for Corning Tire & Exhaust as a mechanic. Grizz also worked for Bruce Damewood as a mechanic until retiring in 2022 due to his declining health.

Grizz also was a rock-hound and loved to go rock hunting. He had collected and traded rocks from various places all across the United States. He also enjoyed fishing every chance he had and picking wild fruit like mulberries and raspberries. Grizz’s passion though, was fixing cars and making their motors run. Grizz thought of Lois’ grandchildren as his own and loved playing with all of them. He never knew a stranger and will be missed by many.

Ed was preceded in death by his parents; and Lois’ parents, Jean and Russell Davis.

Ed is survived by his significant other and companion, Lois Myers of Brooks, Iowa; his brother, Barry (Jean) Carpenter of Corning, Iowa; Lois’ children: William Myers of Brooks; Dean (Christy) Myers of Lewis, Iowa; and Jennifer Myers of Brooks; and 5 grandchildren: Ethan, Ryan, Maylei, Sabrina and Aundrina; Grizz is also survived by several nieces, nephews, and many friends.
