Obituary

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 was a charter member of the Red Barn Sportsmen's Club and enjoyed traveling with the "Good Timers" group. Ed had many interests including gardening, fishing, hunting and sports. He loved the outdoors and taking drives with Marcy. He served his country as a United States Marine.

Edward is survived by his four children, Edward and Margaret of Palm City, Florida; Colleen of Coral, PA; Steve and Denise of North Huntingdon, PA; and Tom and Terri of Blairsville, PA; and his seven grandchildren Matthew, Alex, Ryan, Rebecca, Abbie, Kourtney and Noah. He is also survived by his siblings, Pauline Stachelczyk, Agnus Zometsky, and Francis "Mimi" and husband James Yanoscsik.

He was preceded in death by his wife Marcella; his parents, Joseph and Helen Horchar; his brothers, Joseph, Andrew and John; and his sisters, Annie, Helen and Veronica.
