Ronald Lee Harrell

March 5, 1935 – January 26, 2019

Ronald Lee Harrell went to be with the Lord, at home, with all his family at his side. He drifted off quietly while sleeping.

Ron was born in Langeloth, Pennsylvania, on March 5, 1935, to Melvin and Thelma (King) Harrell.

He entered the United States Coast Guard, in 1954, right out of high school. He served for 22 years as a cook. During his years, he traveled all over the world.

After retiring, he worked in Haugewood’s as cook and then changed to Clallam County Jail, feeding the inmates. After really retiring, he devoted a lot of his life to his favorite activities; fishing hunting and family.

He married Millie Hope in 1955. They divorced in four years, with no children. In 1961, he married Sharon Richardson. They raised three wonderful children that all traveled, when they could, with Ron. Ron and Sharon divorced after many years, but remained friends. In 1987, Ron remarried Millie and had several wonderful years together merging the two family’s; his and Millie’s children. It gave him a very large family; all loving one another.

Family was the most important thing to him and his family remembers all the family get-togethers, camping trips, fishing competitions, excruciatingly long car trips and amazing holidays with the wonderful man at their side. The family continues to get-together for holiday meals and Ron’s last one was this past Christmas.

He is survived by his wife, Millie; daughter, Lisa Carpenter; sons, Ronald Harrell Jr., David (Robin) Harrell; stepchildren, Cathy Dahl (John) Ybarra, David Dahl, Wayne (Amber) Dahl; 17 grandchildren; and 22 great-grandchildren. We all miss him terribly.

A life celebration service will be held at Sequim Community Church on March 2, at 2 PM. For family and close friends a reception will be at the Sequim Grange Hall on Macleay Rd. In lieu of flowers, please give a donation to Hospice. They were a wonderful help through this. Thank you very much.

He lived in many different places around the state. At the time of his death, he resided in an adult care home in Bremerton.

Jimmy was preceded in death by his parents.

He is survived by his stepmother, Velma Johnson; brothers, Jerry and John; sisters, Jeana and Julie (Craig) Vig, Tracey Crabtree, and Andrea Walker Macfeat; nephews and nieces; and a great-nephew, all of the Port Angeles and Sequim area.
