September 12, 1962 — October 1, 2021

Oregon, IL

Ronald Edward Horn, age 59, of Oregon, Illinois, passed away at home on October 1, 2021.  He was born in Rochelle, Illinois on September 12, 1962, and lived in Ashton, Illinois, until moving to Oregon at the age of 8.  He graduated from Oregon High School in 1980.

Ron began his career at Exelon's Byron Nuclear Station as a contractor, then transitioned to Exelon's Quality Verification Department.  Over the course of 30 years, he attained numerous professional credentials, ultimately serving as Supervisory Quality Verification Inspector and overseeing the Byron Station's Quality Verification Department.

Although he had a successful career with Exelon, Ron proudly considered himself a farmer.  He learned from the best...his grandfather...and was happiest on the tractor working the family farm.
