    Default R.I.P.--73M819--Ron Harris

    I just got word that Ron, username 73m819, was in a serious accident while driving a PLS truck tonight.

    Wes Simpson, username Simp5782, was behind him and came up on the accident after it happened.

    This occured in VA or West VA enroute back to Memphis prob on I-81.

    Jeff Davis related this sad news to me.

    I have known Ron a long time and have worked with him on several occasions doing various MV related projects.

    He is a stand up guy and a good friend.

    Please keep Ron and his family in your thoughts and prayers.

    And the Dark Man said to him, "I will set you high in my artillery. You are the man I want." Then he saw an army of ten thousand driving across the desert and into the mountains, a rough beast of an army whose time had come at last. And riding in a giant tanker, he saw himself, and knew that the truck was filled with Napalm. Behind him, in a long column, were trucks loaded with bombs, mines, plastic explosive, flame throwers, flares, heat seeking missiles, grenades, machine guns and rocket launchers. The dance of death was about to begin, and already the strings of the fiddles and guitars were smoking and the stench of brimstone and cordite filled the air.

    It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to tell all of you that knew Ron personally that he passed away from his injuries.

    A good friend of his and fellow SS member is with Ron's family now.

    Please continue to remember them in your thoughts and prayers.

    May Ron rest in peace. He will certainly be missed and the GA Rally will not be the same without him.

    I knew Ron for a while. He was one of my drivers when I made the big move out west to NE from NJ back in 2010/2011. He had a can-do attitude and a good sense of humor, and I enjoyed our exchanges...... He will be missed.........
