Wick Kendall Harper, 85, passed away at his home in Isonville, Kentucky on April 1, 2023, surrounded by family. Wick served Elliott County as sheriff, as well as serving our country as an MP in the Army. He also worked as a farm manager and in the mining industry.
Wick is preceded in death by his wife, Florina Ison Harper; his parents, Jake and Orill Harper; his brother, John W. Harper; and his grandson, Aaron Sloas. Wick is survived by his siblings; Bea York, Wilma Simmons, Lyda Skaggs (Millard), Glenn Harper, Frank Harper (Pauline), David Harper (Myra). He is also survived by his children; Chris Harper (Sharon), Kim Underwood (Jerry), Penny Harless, Felicia Green (Mike), and Jacob Harper. He also leaves fourteen grandchildren and thirteen great-grandchildren, who all adore him.
Wick was a God-loving, Christian man who was loved and respected by his numerous friends, family and co-workers. He wasn't a big talker, but you could always depend on the wisdom of his words. His sense of humor was legendary, and he loved a good game of Rook. Wick taught his children to be hard workers from an early age and was always there for them, both in joy and in sorrow. His death leaves a profound void that will never be filled. We will miss him.
Funeral will be conducted Wednesday, April 5, 2023 at 1:00 PM at Lewis & Ferguson Funeral Home. Visitation Tuesday, 6:00 - 9:00 PM Burial at Elliott County Memory Gardens
