The Harper Family
This page updated 30 Dec, 2002
The Johnny Harpers from Abilene, that is. Our dad passed away in 1980. He was a musician and an artist. Clickhere for some examples of his art. Our amazing mom, Patty, still lives in Abilene and does real neat country crafts (photos to come). Our oldest brother Jay is a court reporter in San Antonio. Brian and David live in Leander, TX near Austin. Some of Brian's old artwork is included on our Dadís page. David is a massage therapist. Pam lives in California with her husband Mike Conaway and they have two grown kids, Kristen and David (David is in college). Debbie and her husband Mitchell Shipwash are in Colorado Springs with their two teen girls Melaina and Brittany. They run Local Motion Productions which does video and photography at ice skating competitions. Christopher and his wife Lorilyn are thespians in Atlanta.
