PEORIA - Ronald A. Reeder, 76, of Peoria passed away at 1:58 a.m. Monday, July 21, 2014, at Heddington Oaks Nursing Home in West Peoria.
Ron was born June 16, 1938, in Peoria to Robert and Henrietta Reeder.
Following Ron's graduation from Bradley University, he worked for First Federal Savings for 21 years as a computer programmer and later worked for CILCO for seven years, retiring as a computer programmer on Jan. 1, 1996.
Ron was a genuinely kind man, having a smile and a wave hello for all he met. In a silent private way, he always responded generously to charitable requests. He enjoyed his family home for 73 years and was so grateful to remain home for an extra few years thanks to the efforts of Aging Care Management and the loving care from Sandi, Michele, Melissa, Mari, Beth, Rhonda and many others.
Private visitation will be at 11 a.m. on Friday, July 25, 2014, at The Wilton Mortuary, per Ron's request. Burial will be in Springdale Cemetery.
