Even with all the great achievements and awards Tim received, he still found time to have personal hobbies.  For a brief while he took up interest as an Apiarian (Beekeeper) but found greater joy in other pastimes.  He was an avid Hunter and Angler, and worked as a speed skating coach for many years.  Tim strongly supported the American Red Cross North Texas Region.  His love for Classic Car Restoration ran deep with his 1958 Chevy Impala, 1955 T-Bird, and 1967 Firebird.  He then became a member of the Parker County Cruisers.  Above all, spending time with his family brought him more joy than any award or hobby ever could.  Tim’s giving heart and contagious smile will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know him.

He has been reunited with his father, Paul Harper; mother, Mary Luna Harper; and brother, Phil Harper, in God’s Eternal Kingdom.

Tim will be deeply and lovingly missed by his wife, Sandra Morris Harper of Weatherford; sisters, Loretta Mattix of Banes, Texas and Jane Slade of Bowie, Texas; son, Robbie Harper, endowed member of Azle Masonic Lodge, and wife, Amy, of Johnson City, Texas; son, Rodney Harper, endowed member of Azle Masonic Lodge, and wife, Shana of Lake Jackson, Texas;  step-daughter, Angel Mendes and husband, Scott of Weatherford, Texas; grandchildren, Chase Harper, Rusty Clower, Kaden Mendes, Jeanette Harper, Jorden Mendes, and Kolten Mendes; and a host of friends who became family.
