I am sorry for your loss of a loved person in the family. Prayers being offered for the Crapo family in your grief.
Ron was a supervisor that hired me at Clinton in 1983 and we worked together in the CI shop and in system engineering. Much of my understanding came from his patient explanation of what he knew and had learned. Hopeful to see him on the other side.

Please pass along my condolences to the family of Ron Crapo. I worked for Ron at the Clinton Power Station. He was my first direct contact with a representative of Illinois Power. In February or March of 1984 Ron picked me and another applicant up at the Holiday Inn in Decatur and drove us to the power plant for our interview. Both of us were hired and I still work there. I was saddened today when I heard of his passing. Prayers and condolences to Ron's family.

To the family of Ron Crapo--My heartfelt condolences to all of you. Ron was a fellow submariner aboard the USS Sam Rayburn. He exhibited professionalism, was an excellent Submariner and Reactor Operator and had excellent technical skills. He was always opinionated and that was expected. but a dedicated crew member and friend. When I ran into Ron at Clinton Nuclear Station it was a nice surprise as I had lost contact with him. I am sure he was a great family man and that he will be missed. Remember that he served his country honorably and I was, and still am, honored to have served with him and call him a brother in the best submarine force in the world. May he rest in peace and may all of you remember all the good times you had, even when it is tough. David B.
