Michael D. “Mike” Harp, age 60, passed away unexpectedly at his home on Thursday, April 15, 2021.

Mike was born on January 24, 1961 in Carthage, Missouri, the son of Richard and Dorothy (Selby) Harp. He completed his K-12 education in the Diamond R-IV School District, graduating in 1979. A standout long distance runner in high school, Mike went on to compete at Missouri Southern State College and, afterwards, as an independent runner in numerous regional races. While at MSSC, he earned his associate’s degree and later earned a second degree in AutoCAD and drafting.

He married his high school sweetheart, Kristi Macy, on July 17, 1981 in Diamond, Missouri. Together they were blessed with three children. He was an active member of Diamond First Baptist Church where he taught Sunday school classes and led bible studies for several years.

Mike owned and operated American Tool & Engineering, Inc. in Joplin, Missouri for over 20 years. As president/owner, he designed, consulted, and delivered custom tooling for both domestic and international customers. He also served as a frequent guest speaker at Missouri Southern State University, teaching the next generation of drafting & design students.

Mike was an active member of his community. He served on the Diamond School Board from 2002-2005. Additionally, he served on the Diamond City Council and was the interim mayor for a year. Mike also served as a Mighty Mites football coach for Diamond Elementary School for four years. He enjoyed kayaking, hiking, fishing, coin collecting and celebrating life with his family and friends – especially as “Poppy” to his twin granddaughters, Ainsley and Alex.

Mike is survived by his wife of thirty-nine years, Kristi Harp, Diamond, MO; two sons, Matt Harp and wife Andrea, Springfield, MO, and Micah Harp and wife Emalee, Carl Junction, MO; one daughter, Macy Tommey and husband, Beau, Rogers, AR; his parents, Richard and Dorothy Harp, Diamond, MO; two sisters, Michele Harp, Diamond, MO; Missy Potter and husband Brandon, Springfield, MO; and twin granddaughters, Ainsley and Alex Harp, and one nephew Bracken Potter.

Funeral services will be held at 11:00 AM on Monday, April 19th at First Baptist Church of Diamond. Pastor Ron Crow will be officiating, with Pastor Greg Snow providing the eulogy.

The visitation will be 2-4:00 p.m. Sunday at Mason-Woodard Chapel. Memorial contributions may be given to the Cerebral Palsy Foundation in care of the mortuary.

Arrangements are under the care and direction of Mason-Woodard Mortuary and Crematory.
