    Jed was born on Aug. 24, 1938, and lived his entire life in and around Reedsburg, WI. On June 4, 1960, Jed married the love of his life, Lois Langdon, and for 55+ years they shared a wonderful life. Jed was an active member of Knights of Columbus and American Legion Post 350, Reedsburg. He worked at Reeds’ Gas and Electric; R.S. and L. Co-op; North American Heating ; Prairie Plumbing and Heating and for his son at All Around Home Maintenance. He also worked at Viking Grocery as a delivery man and then spent 5 summers at Yogi Bear Jellystone Park in Wi. Dells as a grounds keeper. He was a member of the Army National Guard for 9 years and spent time during the Berlin Crisis at Fort Lewis, Washington. He was a Greeter at Sacred Heart Church, a generous volunteer at the Sacred Heart Church Food Pantry every month. He could be seen sitting in church almost every weekend which was very important to him. He was known to many as the "kraut" man and could be found tending his garden and canning his kraut, pickles and tomatoes. Jed enjoyed the outdoors, hunting, fishing, and loved working hard in the sunshine. The only time Jed could be found sitting is when his home teams, Green Bay Packers or Wisconsin Badgers were playing on TV. As soon as it was half time you could hear him saying, “Well, I gotta!” meaning he had to get up and squeeze in whatever little bit of work he could get done during that half time break.
    He enjoyed immensely their two trips to Ireland to visit the Horkan’s on the other side of the ocean, and their trip to Missouri to visit “ole” friends.
    Jed is preceded in death by his son, Gary Lee; his parents, John B and Berniece Horkan; his brother, John; and in-laws, Dewey and Delta Langdon and a host of friends.
    He is survived by his wife, Lois (Langdon) Horkan of Reedsburg, WI; his sons, Dan (Jackie) Horkan of Lodi,WI, and Randy (Jennifer) Horkan of Reedsburg, WI. Jed adored his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He loved attending their sports events, church programs, and school activities. His grandchildren are: Kristen (Jake) Konopacki, Jessica (Matt) Oberg, Jessie Horkan ,and her fiancee, Matt Stauffacher, Edward (Shannon) Pike, Abigael Horkan, and Lilliana Horkan. He was also blessed with 2 great-grandchildren, Peyton and Avery Oberg; sisters, Helen Knuth and Bernadine (Bob) Walsh; brothers, Edward (Judy) Horkan, Larry (Janice) Horkan; and his very special 4-legged kids, Benni and Bambi who were his pride and joy.
