In Memory of
Edwin T. Harper
August 8, 1927 - January 1, 2022

Service:
Private Family Service

Edwin Theodore Harper was born August 8, 1927. However, Ted's life really began when he met his beautiful bride, Vivian Mae. They were married in 1963. Vivian was the love of his life and his world was everything for her and about her. Ted's other love was his ministry. He loved teaching others about Jehovah God and his wonderful promises for everyone for the future. Ted was the perfect gift when he came into our lives. He filled a large void. Renea Talbott and Diane Westhoff, his daughters are so grateful to have him as their Dad. We look forward to seeing him again.

Hello Diane and Renae, Your mom picked a good one when she chose Ted! He also filled a void in my family when he became my Dad's best friend and brother and set off to find adventure in Ohio. I'm sure my parents would have liked to bring Ted and Vivian out west when they left to join their family in Montana. You were so devoted to your parents, and showed what love means by your selfless caretaking of them for many years. Love you guys! GAYLE & BRUCE

We are sorry for your loss Diane and Renea. We have such great memories of your family. We are so glad that your parents could be best friends with our parents. And Ted was such a hard-working brother he had a way of making you feel really good and appreciated. And I enjoyed his sense of humor like everyone. We are looking forward to a happy reunion in the future.

Diane and Renea, it was a pleasure to know your parents. My thoughts of Ted start from the time as a young kid in the Marysville congregation. Ted's zeal for the ministry, encouraging others, and his love of donuts! I remember him standing there in the doorway of the kingdom hall, with his plaid fedora heading out in the ministry. We look forward to seeing him with Vivian active in the ministry again in the future here real soon. We send our love

I only met your parents in thier later years, but thier devotion to each other and Jehovah never faded as they dealt with thier health issues, thats a beautiful reflection of loyal love. You girls also reflected that quality in your absolute loyalty and ❤️ in caring for your parents. I look forward to meeting Ted again when he is fully restored to health.
