Ronald Harter Obituary, League City TX, Longtime Resident Dies At 63

Ronald Harter Obituary, Death – League City, Texas, native Ronald (Ron) Dean Harter, 66, was killed in a motorcycle accident in Iberville Parish, Louisiana, on Thursday, June 29, 2023. His parents, Wilbur D. Harter and Lois J. (Sonner) Harter, gave birth to him on September 8, 1956, in Angola, Indiana. After graduating from Angola High, he enlisted in the Navy in 1974.

Holy Loch, Scotland; Bremerton, Washington; and New London, Connecticut were among his duty stations in the navy. Ron, who served on the USS Andrew Jackson and USS Michigan, was a dedicated submariner. On July 11, 1981, in Avon Lake, Ohio, Ron wed the love of his life, Lisa Mae Elliott. They welcomed children into the world in 1983 (a son named Jeremy or Jay) and 1984 (a daughter named Allison Mae). Ron loved his children and wife dearly. Grandpa Quinlan, Grandpa Eli, Grandpa Elena, and Grandpa Elliott brought him enormous pride and happiness. He introduced them to the joys of movie night and popcorn.

Ron took his family on what they now refer to as “Harter Family Adventures,” during which they experienced the ups and downs of life and learned to “expect the unexpected.” Whether sad or happy, as long as everyone was together, everything was OK. The loss of community since his demise is profound. After 12 years of service to Hewlett-Packard in Houston, Texas, Ron retired after a successful career in computer software engineering and business analytics. He had beaten prostate cancer twice before. Ron, a veteran of the United States Navy, was actively involved in numerous veteran service organizations. These included the United States Submarine Veterans, Inc. (USSVI), the American Legion, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and Forty and Eight. In his role as President of the USSVI’s Cavalla Base, he was very busy. In his spare time, Ron liked to tell tales about his experiences “punching holes in the ocean.

He joined the Silent Service Motorcycle Club (SSMC) and the American Legion Riders, allowing him to combine his two interests. He helped found the SSMC’s Lone Star Chapter in the Gulf Coast Division, where he later served as secretary and treasurer. A member of the Bay Area V-Twins Motorcycle Club, Ron rode with them. He took his wife and some of his closest friends on a number of cross-country motorbike excursions because he adored the open road, its beauty, and the feeling of the wind on his face. At various points throughout his life, Ron’s other passions included scuba diving, welding, and making his own beer.

He had a passion for the kitchen and smoking meat. He found great satisfaction in creating delicious, unique dishes in the kitchen to share with loved ones at special occasions. Ron loved music and had been practicing his acoustic guitar skills. At his Celebration of Life, we will play music by some of his favorite artists and bands, including Pink Floyd, the Grateful Dead, Arlo Guthrie, and Neil Young. He was a big music fan and always looked forward to attending concerts. Ron’s parents, Wilbur D. and Lois J. (Sonner) Harter, as well as his brother, Steven L., and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, and nephews, all passed away before him.

Ron is survived by his wife of 42 years, Lisa M. (Elliott) Harter of League City, Texas; his son, Jeremy Harter, of Houston, Texas; his daughter and son-in-law, Allison and Diana Harter, of Houston, Texas; his grandson, Quinlan Elliott Harter, of Aloha, Oregon; his grandchildren, Eli James Harter, Elena Michelle Harter, and Elliott David Harter, all of Houston; his brother and sister-in-law, William E
The family of Ron wants to express their deep appreciation to the emergency personnel and passersby who tried so hard to revive him. We will never forget the outpouring of love and support shown to a dearly loved husband, father, and grandfather during his final days.
