Ronnie Kurt Harmon, the son of Royal William and Opal Marie (Tudor) Harmon, was born November 17, 1959, in Nebraska City, Nebraska. He attended Rock Port High School, Rock Port, Missouri, graduating in 1978.
Following graduation, Ronnie worked in numerous area jobs, then moved to California in 1983, where he excelled and was promoted to manager of a Goodyear Tire Dealership in Santa Ana. In 1988, he moved to Tulsa, Oklahoma, where he managed a Rapid Lube business and in 1989, Ronnie returned to the Midwest. On April 30, 1994, he was united in marriage to Jolene Lewis. They later divorced, but Ronnie maintained a close relationship with Jason, Cassie and Jayme.
In 1999, he purchased NAPA Auto Parts in Rock Port, which he owned and operated to the present time. Ronnie was a tender hearted man. His passing will leave a void in the lives of many of his close friends.
Ronnie was proud to be a member of the Patriot Guard and participated in processions. He was also a member and former President of the Rock Port Lions Club and Heartland Riders, an evangelical Christian motorcycle organization. Ronnie passed away Sunday, March 11, 2018, at his home in Rock Port at the age of 58.
Ronnie especially enjoyed the peace and solitude of watching the sunrise and sharing that time with his LORD. He gave his heart and soul to Him on February 19, 2007.
Ronnie loved life in general, he loved people and helping anyone he could. He never knew a stranger and shared his sense of humor wherever he went. His greatest joy was riding his Harley alone or with his many fellow riders, friends, and of course especially with WAKO.
