John Edward Harper, 55, passed away November 28, 2018.
He was born May 9, 1963 in Wichita, Kansas, the son of Edward and Karen (Hickerson) Harper.
John was one of a kind; a lover and a fighter; stubborn and willing to give all at the same time. He loved hard -loved people, his Harley, his trucks, his doggies (sidekicks Astro and Rosie), loved going junkin’, Christmastime (including riding said Harley in his Santa Suit!), Star Trek and maybe most of all…..chocolate!
He had the most contagious giggle and the brightest blue eyes when they lit up. Those eyes will be missed; our wish is that they are now brighter and happier.
John is survived by his father, Ed Harper; sister, Diana (Peter) Locke; niece, Jessica (Edward) Lottridge; nephews, Zachary (Jessica) Ramsour, Zebulon Ramsour; and aunts, Gay (Kent) Covell, Jill (Phil) Freeman, and Claudia (Tom Bossert) Reeder. He is preceded in death by his mother, Karen J. Harper; aunts, Bonnie Parcel and EvaEllen Graff; and grandparents, Emma Harper and Pauline and Wilbur Hickerson.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the American Diabetes Association.
