Edward A. “Woodeye” Brouillet – 1933 – 2018 – longtime area car cruiser

Edward Arthur Brouillet (Woodeye) passed into eternal rest on September 13, 2018 at West Haven Veterans Hospital.

He was born in Greenwich, CT on November 4, 1933, son of the late Edward and Margaret (Bringe) Brouillet. Ed was a self-employed carpet technician (the best there was) and a proud veteran of the Unites States Army. His passion was antique vehicles and he belonged to the local auto clubs where he shared the camaraderie of friends with like interests.

Always quick with a joke and ready to help when asked, “I have never known a stranger, just a friend I never met.”

Edward was a resident of Naugatuck for twelve years. He is survived by his wife of 63 years, Sally (Inciardi) Brouillet, his son Frank Arthur Brouillet and his wife Nadia of Detroit, MI; three grandchildren, Alec, Taylor and Logan; a daughter in law Kathy Brouillet of Shelton; his sisters in law, Annette Barton and her husband Roger of Oakville, Elizabeth Kasuba and Allan Winer of Milford, Margaret Brouillet of Stratford; a brother in law Joseph Inciardi and his wife Laura of Fairfield; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his son Edward and brother Raymond.
