    Randall Harper Dies Friday As Result Of Fire

    RarrJall Harper, 79, of South Main St. died at 8:30 a.m. Friday, March 15 as a result of smoke inhalation after having been rescued from his burning home Thursday night.

    Wally Dinsmore was passing the home when he noticed the fire and turned in the alarm.

    Mr. Harper was alone in the house and had tried to put out the fire himself.

    Due to some very quick action the firemen were able to keep the blaze from Mr. Harper while Officer Sam Madonna and Fire Chief Dave Burns pulled him from the fire and smoke filled home.

    The fire was believed to have started around a coal stove. Officer Madonna would like to commend Dave Burns and his firemen for the tremendous effort they put forth; Dr. George Rosero, who applied external massage and successfully revived Mr. Harper; and the Easterday - Bonine Ambulance Service who rushed him to the Parkview Hospital.

    Mr. Harper was born Sept. 22, 1888 at Brooke Haven, Miss, to James and Cora Harper.

    He had resided in Culver since 1923 and was retired from C.M.A. He was married in Terre Haute, March 11 1923 to Marvel Redmon who survives.

    Surviving with his wife are three sons, James of Chicago, Isaac, U.S. Army in Korea, and Randall C. of Seat Pleasant, Md.; four daughters, Mrs. Elizabeth Winston of Stanford, Cal., Mrs. Coralee Fowlis of Warren, Ohio, Mrs. Doris Owens and Miss Eunice Harper, both of Terre Haute; one sister, Mrs. Eunice Brooks, Jackson, Tenn.; two brothers, George and Thomas Harper, both of Jackson Tenn.; and seventeen grandchildren.

    Funeral services were held at 2:00 p.m. Sunday with Rev. Joseph A. Lenk, pastor of St. Mary's of The Lake Church officiating. The W. A. Fleet Post of the American Legion conducted grave side services for the World War 1 veteran.

    Burial was at the Culver Masonic Cemetery. The Easterday-Bonine Funeral Home was in charge of the arrangements. - MARCH 21, 1968
