His Shore Duty Stations were in Camp Lejeune, NC and Yokosuka, Japan. Lee, as most knew him as, was a simple and humble man who enjoyed watching Western TV Shows, Tennessee Football and horror movies. He always enjoyed cooking breakfast for his family and dining out at Chinese restaurants. Not one to sit still at home he could often be found driving around town looking for garage sales and always bargaining at flea markets.

Following his cremation, Mr. Harper will be buried in Gallatin City Cemetery, next to his wife and son, with the rendering of Full Military Honors.
