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.
