Patriot Guard and associates,
Sadly we are called to stand for John Horan, who served our country honorably in the U.S. Navy, the US Coast Guard and for 45 years with the CT Auxiliary State Police may he rest in peace.
After attending local schools, he graduated from New York State Maritime College with a Bachelor of Marine Engineering degree, a U.S. Coast Guard license as a Third Assistant Engineer, and a commission as an Ensign United States Navy, class of 1959. After four years of active naval service, he joined the Navy Ready Reserve for another 21 years and retired as Captain in 2006.
In 1993, he retired from the Navy Reserve, and joined the Coast Guard Auxiliary and retired 15 years later as a Flotilla Commander for the Gales Ferry Unit.
In May of 1968, John was sworn in as a Connecticut State Police Auxiliary Trooper, serving 45 years for the state of Connecticut and the Connecticut State Police. This service brought many rewarding experiences into John’s life.
This Hero was personal friends with fellow PGR member Kevin Gross and we are sorry for your loss Sir!
