Obituary for Edward A. Hertel

Edward A. Hertel, 60, of Midland, died unexpectedly on Sunday, October 6, 2019 at MidMichigan Medical Center - Midland. He was born April 30, 1959 in Bay City, the oldest of three children to the late Arthur and Jane (Fritz) Hertel. Ed was a 1977 graduate of Garber High School. In 1983 he married the love of his life, the former Colette Groulx at St. Anne Catholic Church in Edenville. Ed was employed at Consumers Energy for the last 39 years. He was known for a willingness to help anyone and for being a jack-of-all trades. He loved driving his tractor on his property, and being out on the water bass fishing or just relaxing on the pontoon boat. What he loved most was being with his family - especially being Papa to his grandchildren.



Ed is dearly missed by his wife, Colette, his two daughters: Danielle (Jeremy) Stewart, and Jennifer Hertel; three grandchildren: Nicholas Edward, Alexander John, and Astrid Colette; and his brother, Jack (Julie) Hertel. Ed will also be sadly missed by his sisters-in-law, Lanette (Antonio) Mele, Annette (Robert) Droelle and Jeanette (Gary) Bellaver; brother-in-law Tom (Lori) Groulx, and many nieces and nephews. Also surviving is his sister, Melanie Hertel.



Funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Thursday, October 10, 2019 at St. Brigid of Kildare Catholic Church, 207 Ashman Street. The family will receive friends at Ware-Smith Woolever Funeral Home on Wednesday, October 9, 2019 from 3-7 p.m. with a prayer service taking place at 7 p.m., and at the church on Thursday from 10 a.m. until time of Mass.
