SOUTH BEND - Mr. Edward A. Johnson, 63, of South Bend, Indiana, passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, September 17, 2017, at his residence.

Edward was born on May 14, 1954, to Elouise Bingham in Independence, Louisiana. He was adopted and raised by his grandmother, Christina Columbus Johnson. On June 20, 1981, in South Bend, Indiana, he was united in holy matrimony to Jacqueline E. Jamerson. Together, they shared 36 years of life.

Edward received his formal education in South Bend, Indiana, graduating from LaSalle High School in 1973, where he formed lasting relationships with friends and classmates.

His work history includes Uniroyal and Eaton Corporation, from which he retired in 2016. At the time of his death, he was an employee of Alford's Mortuary. After his official retirement, Edward spent time reading the Word of God. His passions were fishing, watching “old” Westerns, and football. He was an avid fan of the “Notre Dame Fighting Irish,” and he enjoyed his man cave to the fullest!
