Jed was a proud member of the Prospect High School Wildcats Class of 1975. He was employed with Moore’s Chainsaw of Prospect, where he worked along with his father, Mr. Harbert. Jed was also employed with his Uncle Bill with Prospect Motors driving a wrecker. He was also a proud retired inaugural member of Prospect Volunteer Fire Department, Station #23. Jed never hesitated to assist a person in need and was dedicated to his service with the department for 37 years. Jed liked to attend Antique Farm shows throughout the Carolinas, Auctions, Pawn Shops, and was always up for an adventure prior to the decline in his health. He had an excellent memory in regard to model and parts numbers of chainsaws, lawnmowers,  automobiles, televisions  and an assortment of gadgets. He could take one persons junk and fix it to run or work another day. Upon questioning by one of his nephews how he knew how to fix so many things, Jed replied, “I was born with mechanical knowledge.”  He remembered phone numbers (Did Jed call you? How many times a day?). If he couldn’t remember your number, he didn’t hesitate to ask someone to look it up for him. He liked to have a phone close by at all times and didn’t mind using it. He kept saying he was going to get him a computer. More importantly, he was a loving and devoted son during his mother and fathers illnesses. Jed attended both New Philadelphus United Methodist and Prospect United Methodist Church and loved his church family. Jed meant so much to so many but he knew that God loved him most. He loved God, his family and friends, his country, and everything Prospect.
