Obituary*12 Aug 2012 Robert Harrell Culpepper, second son of James Pickren and Leona Wansley Culpepper, was born in Tifton, Georgia, on December 8, 1924. After a remarkable life of service on two continents, he died on August 10, 2012.
     Bob was a lifetime learner. His formal education after graduation from the Tifton High School, was at Mercer University with a bachelor's degree in 1944, a B.D. from the Southern Baptist Seminary in 1947 and a Th.D. degree from the same institution in 1950. He studied at the Union Theological Seminary in Richmond, Virginia, in the Southern Baptist Seminary in Louisville, at the Ruschlikon Seminary in Zurich, Switzerland, and at Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, N.C. where he later served as a professor.
     He was a brilliant scholar in the Baptist denomination, serving as a professor of theology in the Theological Department of Seinan Gakuin University, at the Japan Branch of the Asia Baptist Theological Seminary, and at Southeastern Seminary in Wake Forest, N.C. While the classroom was the focus of his vocational ministry, he was a servant of many churches. He loved to preach. His pastorates varied from his one in Shiloh-Lama Baptist Church in the summer of 1943 while he was a student at Mercer to the ones he helped to establish in Japan, at Hirao, in Tobata, and at Nagazumi.
     Since Dr. Culpepper was the author of Interpreting the Atonement, Evaluating the Charismatic Movement, and God's Calling: A Missionary Autobiography, his scholarship is preserved. However, his greatest influence is found in the lives of his students whom he taught and of his parishioners to whom he preached.
     In April 1980, Dr. and Mrs. Culpepper completed their thirty year service as missionaries of the Foreign Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention and moved from Fukuoka, Japan to Wake Forest, N.C. where Bob became a professor at Southeastern Seminary. After more than twenty years in Wake Forest, they moved to Lakewood Manor, a Baptist retirement community in Richmond. There Kay died in 2007.
     In addition to his devoted wife, Dr. Culpepper was predeceased by his mother, father and brother. He is survived by his daughter, Cathy Harvey and her husband, Ken; six grandchildren, Shelton, Beau, Charlotte, Chip, Laurel and Matthew; and a niece, Sarah Christopher.
     A service will be held at the columbarium at River Road Church, Baptist on Sunday, August 12, 2012 at 1 p.m.3

  1. The Rev. Bob Culpepper felt a call,
    one he wasn't sure he wanted to hear at the time.

    Excerpted from an article by Eleanor Lee Yates, The News & Observer, Raleigh, NC, 16 Apr 1999, "The Mission Fields"

    The Rev. Robert H. Culpepper and his wife, Kay, had a rather shaky arrival in Japan as Southern Baptist missionaries after World War II.
         On one of their first nights in Tokyo, they awakened to their baby's bed sliding across the floor. No damage was done, but the couple realized earthquakes were yet another adjustment they would be making.
         The Culpeppers served as Southern Baptist missionaries in Japan for 30 years. Culpepper had been working on his doctorate at Southern Seminary in Louisville when he said he felt an unmistakable call.
         With World War II over, there was momentum on seminary campuses to send missionaries to Japan. In January 1951, after saying goodbye to their disbelieving parents, the Culpeppers headed to Tokyo with their 6-month-old daughter.
         Culpepper would be teaching at the Theological Department of Seinan Gakuin, the Japan Baptist seminary in the town of Fukuoka. The couple would also establish churches. But their first job was learning the language.
         "I feel sorry for my first students," Culpepper said. Though he worked with a translator, it was a struggle. "I didn't allow much time for questions and answers afterward. I prayed the students wouldn't raise their hands."
         Their work turned out to be a seven-days-a-week schedule. The Culpeppers started a church in their home. A red-letter day came a year later after the couple arrived. Culpepper preached his first sermon in Japanese.
         The Culpeppers returned permanently to the United States in the 1980s when he took a teaching position at Southeastern Baptist Seminary in Wake Forest.

Obituary*11 Jan 2019 Cathy Culpepper Harvey died peacefully at home following a long illness on January 10th. Born June 24th, 1950 in Lousville, Kentucky to missionary parents, Dr. Robert and Kathleen Culpepper. She soon sailed to their missionary assignment in Fukuoka, Japan.

Cathy embraced the culture, growing up in Japan. She became fluent in the language, learned Sumei painting and ikebana flower arranging. As a teenager, she became a TV host on Japan's KBCTV, then went to on to model for Dentsu Advertising. Cathy studied art at Canadian Academy in Kobe, Japan.

Cathy came back to America to attend Hollins College in Roanoke, VA. She earned her PH Beta Kappa Key and graduated Cum Laude in studio art and art history. Over the years, Cathy's paintings found their way to many Charlotte and Gastonia homes and businesses.

Her skill as an artist was surpassed only by her love and caring as a mother, wife and home maker. Cathy is survived by her husband, Ken and six children, Shelton Wilder McCuthchen, Beau Wilder, Charlotte Harvey, Chip Harvey, Matthew Harvey, and Laurel Smith. The children blessed Cathy and Ken with six wonderful grandchildren.

Cathy also used her talents to spread a little sunshine. She conditioned event flowers, then delivered them to shut ins and nursing home residents. Never knowing a stranger, she was funny and always happy and positive.

She was a member of All Saints Episcopal Church in Gastonia. Cathy will be remembered a great friend and beautiful person.

A funeral service will be Wednesday, January 16, 2018 at 2:00 pm at St. Marks Episcopal Church in Gastonia with a burial at Gaston Memorial Park.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens or All Saints Episcopal Church, Gastonia....5

Friday 20 [Month and Year unknown]
Dear Lois,
     I get the Sharp record wrote the best I can. My grandmother Sharp dropped dead in the yard of her father in South Carolina. Then Grandpa moved to Pike Co, Alabama with his three youngest children two boys and a girl. The two boys went to the Civil War. One never came back. John came back and married twice and all died there in Alabama. My two sisters went back to Granitsville, South Carolina is why they married there, but I found an old boy good enough for me about one mile over in Georgia to marry. When I see you I will tell you how that come about. Now I tell you why I was never called my name. Pa wanted to name me Dollie Matilda. Mother wanted Charlotte but I never been called anything but Dollie. Never knew my other name until I was nearly gron and fount it in the bible.
     Well lois, we are all well but cold. Hope you all got well. Got a letter from Bernice telling me your address so I sent this letter to you-tell me if you get it. Frank came before I got my visit out. Alice and me was going to your house if I got to stay longer. Frank wrote this letter for me, I dictated and he wrote. I could have told you a lot more if you had asked me about it while I was there, -had so many that we could not talk. Alice never knew that your grandfather and grandmother were married in Alabama and your mother was born in Alabama.
     Love to every one of you, write,
     Your Aunt Dollie Culpepper
     Route 4
     Jefferson, Texas
--------------------------------------------------------
Great-great-niece Judi (Cathy) Sharp Allen provided the letter above and added: "Dollie Culpepper aparently could not write very well as her son wrote the letter for her. It was her grandmother Sharp that fell dead but she does not say what her maiden name was. There remained family connections in South Carolina as her sisters went back to South Carolina and were married there. Samuel Thomas Sharp's father, who ever he was moved to Pike county Alabama some time well before the Civil war."7

    "There is an entry in the "Marion County Death Records" for a Mrs. C. M. CULPEPPER, who died 10 July 1931 at age 83. She is shown buried at at Berea Cemetery (Marion Co., TX); however the cemetery books have no record."
  12. E-mail written Jul 2011 to Lew Griffin from Wayne Gregor, e-mail address.
    According to Findagrave.com, Charlotte Matilda Sharp (Mrs. C M Culpepper) and her husband James Pickens Culpepper are buried in Langley Cemetery in Beckville, Panola County, Texas.
    She is referred to a Mrs. C M Culpepper in her request for pension as well, so this is most certainly her grave.
