Meet The Staff At Sparks Tire & Auto

"Family Owned, isn't just some marketing gimmick!"

Ron Tinner, Owner

Personal Information: Ron grew up working on cars in his Grandfather’s garage in St. Paul, Mo. He knew from a very young age that this is what he wanted to do when he grew up. He currently lives in Wentzville Missouri with his wife Sonja. They have a grown daughter, Jessica. When not at Sparks, Ron likes to work on projects around the house, and loves playing around with his granddaughter Lana.

 

Employment Information: Ron began his career at Sparks as a general service technician in 1986. At this time Sparks was a tune-up facility. Ron made a commitment to learn everything he could about the changing automotive repair industry. This paid off, as not only did he become a top level technician, but was able to become a business owner as well. In 2001, after co-owning Sparks for a couple years, Ron bought out the previous owner. He embraces the challenges that this ever-changing industry brings. He can honestly say he loves to come to work each and every day.

In her spare time Sonja likes to find new recipes to cook in her outdoor kitchen, travel, and enjoy all that comes with being a grandma!
