Ron Harmount Jr., of Minneapolis, MN died on May 4, 2021 in his home. It is unknown if he died of natural causes or Covid, however, as a long-term HIV/AIDS survivor, it may be that the disease weakened his immune system and therefore had an impact on his death.

The Minnesota Deaf and DeafBlind communities felt the great impact of the loss of Ron. He was very active in the communities; a mentor, teacher, advocate and a dear, dear friend to many.

Ron was known for his twinkling eyes and bright smile, and when you were hugged by Ron, you KNEW you were hugged.  We miss him dearly.
