RONALD WILLIAM McPHERSON
May 7, 1959-August 1, 2020
Served at Justice of the Peace and Country Treasurer for 13 years. Retired July 31, 2020
We give honor and thanks to the service that our fellow Republican, Ron McPherson gave to his God, Country, Family and Party. His presence will be missed.
On Saturday, August 1, 2020, Ronald William McPherson passed away at the age of 61. Ron was born on May 7, 1959, in Lufkin, Texas to William and Louise McPherson. Ron married Tamatha Peak on October 22, 2000, and they raised two children, Tyler Junkin and Tiara Florio.
After high school, Ron served in the United States Army before returning home to go to college.
After high school, Ron served in the United States Army before returning home to go to college. He attended the University of Arkansas and received his Bachelor of Science in accounting. After attending school at the U of A, Ron kept that deep passion for the Arkansas Razorbacks; you could always find him in his Razorback gear watching a game.
Ron also had a deep passion to serve his community. Over the last 27 years, he has owned and operated his own business, Breadeaux Pizza, in Yellville and was a member of the Yellville Chamber of Commerce.
McPherson said “Involvement in the community is very important to me, I have served Marion County in many different ways. I served on the Quorum Court as Justice of the Peace, District 8 before becoming your County Treasurer. I have been an active member of the Marion County Republican Committee since 2013 and I’ve been an active member and past President of Mid-Marion County Rotary Club for 16 years.”
Ron ended his career as the Marion County Treasurer and retired from that job in July of 2020. “It has been a pleasure serving the citizens of Marion County,” McPherson added. Many county employees say they will miss his Arkansas Razorback themed office and his numerous pranks.
Ron loved to travel with his family and friends and experienced many new places over the years. He had three wonderful grandchildren who were the light of his life. Everyone who knew Ron knows how much he loved to smile and laugh, and make others do the same. He was always playing tricks on people and giving everyone a hard time. He had his niece convinced for many years when she was a child that his middle name was "wonderful", after she had asked what the "W" stood for. His smile and laughter will be missed in our community.
