Edward Anthony Horchar, 87, Coral died Thursday, April 14, 2022 in Indiana, Pennsylvania.  He was the son of the late Joseph and Helen (Pluchinsky) Horchar and was born September 16, 1934 in Indiana, Pennsylvania.

Edward was a member of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish, the Knights of Columbus, and was employed at the Homer City Generation Station.  Edward was happily married to Marcella for 60 years. He especially enjoyed being "Zedo" to his seven grandchildren and family beach vacations. His family and friends could count on him for advice, a joke or a good story. Ed had a great sense of humor which was attributed to his bond with his brother-in-law, Mike and his love for the Three Stooges.

He is also survived by his siblings, Pauline Stachelczyk, Agnus Zometsky, and Francis "Mimi" and husband James Yanoscsik.
