It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Brent William Van Horn on February 18th, 2024. Brent was born to Frank and Lorene Van Horn on December 20th,, 1956 in Van Wert, OH.

Brent was a graduate of The Ohio State University and a devoted sports fan, always cheering on the Buckeyes, win or lose. He also enjoyed watching both the Cincinnati Reds and Bengals. When Brent wasn’t watching his favorite sports teams, you could find him in the garden tending to his flowers.

Brent is survived by his loving wife of 44 years, Jan Van Horn, his sons: Drue (Rebecca) Van Horn and Joel (Leslie) Van Horn, grandchildren: Irelyn, Killian, Rowan, and Ellen, siblings: Keith Van Horn and Denise Hoghe, and many cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends that will miss him dearly.

Brent was preceded in death by his parents Frank and Lorene.

Per the family’s request, there will not be a visitation or service at this time, but a celebration of life at a later date.

Donations can be made in Brent’s name to the following OSU Wexner Medical Center Programs:
