Jed William Bean, 58, went home to heaven Friday, June 7, 2019 from Paola, KS. Mass of the Christian Burial will be 10:00 a.m. Friday, June 21, 2019 at Divine Mercy Catholic Church, 555 W. Main, Gardner, KS. The Mass will be preceded by the Rosary at 9:00 am. The family will have a private inurnment at Resurrection Catholic Cemetery. Arrangements: Bruce Funeral Home, Gardner, KS (913) 856-7111. Condolences may be left at www.brucefuneralhome.

Jed was born on June 19, 1960 to Donald William and Gwendolyn Faye (Plucknett) Bean in Crete, NE. Jed and his family lived in the small town of Friend, NE. His sister, Jodie Dawn Gomez (Angel) now reside in Greenwood, NE. Jed graduated from Friend High School. He then attended the University of Nebraska in Lincoln to earn a Bachelor of Science Degree. Jed worked in sales for greater than 25 years in the Veterinary Health Care Industry. Jed was a good, kind and gentle man who was loved by all who knew him.

Jed married his ‘crazy good’ wife, Jeanne Marie Gutknecht on July 7, 2006 in Prairie Village, KS. “I love you Sweetie.” Jed and Jeanne happily bought a farm together, where he later built his dream log cabin on the property. Jed felt greatly blessed to have acquired seven step-children when he married Jeanne: Mary Alyson (Trevor) Clapp, Thomas Michael VanLerberg, Jonathan Dale (Skye) VanLerberg, Patrick Clarence VanLerberg, Christopher Thomas VanLerberg, Michael Alexander (Leah) VanLerberg and Anne-Marie (Jace) Frizzell. Jed felt equally blessed to have had five grandchildren, and one on the way! Ashlyn Jaide, McKinlee Elizabeth, Alyson Ray, Travis John, Jude Kent and Braden Michael. We all know that as much as he was our strength and support here on earth, he will be even more so from above.

The family is requesting no flowers or gifts, but to share in their confidence in knowing that Jed is with his Lord for it is written, II Corinthians 5:8: “…to be absent from the body is to be at home with the Lord.”

I only briefly "met" (talked with Jed over email) in his last weeks, but he was quite helpful, prompt, and kind in answering my veterinary-related questions. My heart goes out to his family. Blessings, Susie Weis

So so sorry to hear of Jed’s passing. My parents were friends of his parents. He also knew my brother Harry (Skeet) Johnson as business acquaintances. I’ll remember Jed as a kind and thoughtful man. With sympathy, Trish Ricenbaw

Jed was one of my favorite co-workers. I enjoyed working with him every day. He was a kind and fair boss to me. I was overjoyed when he became Catholic and was at Sunday mass each week. Loved being able to talk to Jed after mass and catch up. The stories of Floyd, the farm and the log cabin were always so interesting and he was so happy with his life. He always had a huge smile on his face and I will miss him dearly. Heaven has gain a wonderful soul! I will miss Jed dearly. God bless.

I graduated with Jed Bean from Friend HIgh School, class of 78. Jed was as nice as it gets. I'm very saddened by this news. My memories include a stay over with Jed when we were kids. I remember his mom and dad were very, very nice people. I would hand the ball off to Jed in Football. Jed as a running back and I a Quarterback for the Bulldogs. I'm very sorry to the family of Jed Bean. Even though I have lost touch with Jed thru the years, I will think of him often. He was one of those great people who was a joy to be around with. I believe in Heaven and I believe Jed is in Heaven. God Bless you Jed.

Jed was truly a kind and good man. We who knew him through our work together in the veterinary publishing business were thrilled when he found and married his soul mate and I loved hearing his stories from the farm. He was so truly happy and at peace there. Godspeed, Jed. You're gone far too soon. Hugs from Brenda Shepek Andresen
