Lansing S. Horan Jr.

Lansing S. Horan Jr. left this earth for greener pastures and better eyesight on Oct. 27, 2007.

He was born in Kingsville, Texas on Oct. 5, 1936. Lance served in the U.S. Air Force in the 1950s as an aircraft mechanic.

He moved to Hartford in the late 1950s, where he married Bonnie Uebele and began to work first at Libby’s and then at Broan Manufacturing in Hartford.

He later worked for Miller Brewing Company in Milwaukee until he retired for medical reasons. Lance was a kind-hearted man who was well-liked by almost everyone who knew him.

He was generous almost to a fault and tried to always keep things as simple as possible.

He was quite active in the Boy Scouts - serving as their treasurer for nearly 10 years.

Lance is survived by his sister, Patricia (Robert) Hafey, of Sugarland, Texas; his son, John (Becki) Horan of Omro; his daughter, Cherie (Duane) Frey of Hartford; his son, Lansing (Megan) Horan III, of Denison, Texas; his grandchildren Shawn, Erin, Amanda, Caleb, Ethan and Lansing IV; and other family and friends.

A small, private service will be held in Omro on Saturday, Nov. 3, 2007.
