Rohn was born June 1, 1962 in Mattoon, IL to Glenn and Beverly (Andrews) Gordon. He married Laura Carter on October 21, 1989 in Mattoon, IL.
Rohn was a member of the Mattoon Moose Lodge. He enjoyed playing pool and was a pool league operator for many years. He owned Gordon’s Racing Stables and was also a horse trainer. “Buck’s Sunrise” was his favorite horse. He enjoyed fishing, hunting, and dearly loved his family and spending time with them. He loved living in the country, and caring for his chickens, ducks, and turkey, who he affectionately named “Butterball.”

He also leaves behind many other friends he loved like family, including Bob and Carol Baker, the Smith family, the Showalter family and the Butler family.
He was preceded in death by his parents; one son, Rick Gordon; and his best friend, Bob Butler.
The family would like to give special thanks to Dave Padgett, P.A., for all of his special care and friendship over the years.
