WATERLOO -- Robert “Bob” L. Horon, 64, of Waterloo, passed away on Thursday, Sept. 13, 2018, at St. Mary’s Hospital in Madison.

Bob was born on Dec. 6, 1953, in Indiana, the son of Joseph and Alva (Davis) Horon. Bob worked as a mechanical engineer and he worked for many different companies throughout his career. Bob loved to work out in his garage and tinker with his many projects.
