.
From Capos Conley 'Chip' Culpepper II, September 2001: "I personally knew Aubrey, and spent a great deal of time with his family for a number of summers on "the farm" near Sheridan, Ark (his sons by his marriage to Martha Jane Obernier were close to me and my brothers in age).
.
Unfortunately, one of the best sources of first-hand information on the colorful character who was Aubrey was my own father, Conley Edward Culpepper who died just over a year ago. Although my father was Aubrey's uncle, Dad was only 4 years older than Aubrey. They literally grew up together in Pine Bluff.
.
As you are probably well aware, Aubrey was more than a bit of a wildman.
.
A couple of examples I recall my dad telling me ....
.
When my father was in basic training for the Army during WWII, Aubrey literally hopped a ride on a freight train just to visit him.
.
When my mom and dad were married just after the War, they were enroute to Pine Bluff for their honeymoon when my dad noticed a lump under a blanket in the back seat of the car. The lump turned out to be Aubrey in hiding. Dad stopped the car and left him on the side of the highway... only to have him show up again later at the hotel to serenade the honeymooners through the window!"

  1. John Harry Culpepper, Jr., Writer

    The Valley Town Crier, McAllen,Texas, 6 Sep 1989

    The Valley, with its many geographical advantages, has become home to quite a variety of people. Among these can be found many artists, musicians, sculptors and writers. Among the writers is John Culpepper. His first exposure to the beauties of the area were in the mid-fifties when he was instrumental in completing the first natural gas pipelines from Mexico to the United States. He retired here in 1981. Ever since he was a small boy, he was quick with stories and poems. His first published work was a tribute to his grandfather printed in the Pine Bluff Commercial in his native Arkansas.

    After some encouragement, this was rapidly followed by a similar poem dedicated to his grandmother. Years passed and his experiences and travels prompted him to submit work and ideas to various publishers and other interested parties. Soon his ideas began to appear in written form. Some by his own effort and some by that of others. Articles and stories ranging from this childhood growing-up in rural Arkansas to the soul-baring tales of one man's view of the Korean War began to come from his typewriter. He attended many writer's workshops and seminars to perfect his writing. Then it came.

    Into Each Life completed in 1978, delved deeper into his Korean War experience than he'd gone in his previous work. A telling tale indeed and according to Culpepper, not an easy one to write. His latest novel, Laomi Is Not Home, is also an autobiographical account. Well, maybe not totally true, but based on an actual set of circumstances anyway. It is a sweet tale of a family's love and hope lighting the shadow of racism in the 1930's through the 1950's. Laomi is an orphaned black girl that is taken in by a white family with five boys. The family suffers much ridicule and hatred as a result of their new addition but stand firm against friends and other family members. Until the end, Laomi is Not Home is a winding emotional road that will serve as a guidepost and inspiration for years to come.

Biography* Obituary:
Harry James Culpepper, 59, passed away Tuesday, January 3, 2006, after a courageous and hard fought four-year battle against colon cancer.
     He was born November 18, 1946 in Fort Smith to Versel and Frances Culpepper. Prior to his diagnosis of cancer, he was an avid runner and participated each year in the Timberfest 5k in Sheridan. Harry's grade school and high school education was received in Pine Bluff, Houston, and Sheridan, and he graduated from Sheridan High School in 1965. He was in the army from 1967 to 1969 and served part of that time in Germany. He graduated from Henderson State in Arkadelphia. He worked in the mortgage loan business in Houston and El Paso, TX and then started his own home building business in El Paso. After returning to Arkansas, after his grandfather Harry Culpepper's death, Harry finished out his grandfather's term on the Quorum Court. He also worked for the Pine Bluff Arsenal and the Sheridan School District. He loved to work with and teach children in the classroom as a substitute teacher. He also was a Mason and a Gideon.
     He is preceded in death by both parents and by one step-granddaughter, Katie Rose McIlwain.
     Harry was blessed to have a loving and caring family which included his wife, Cheryl Sue Culpepper of the home; a precious daughter, Virginia Allen, of Springfield, MO; stepson, Scott McIllwain and wife A Theresa, and precious granddaughter, Sammie McIllwain, of Port Carbon, PA; brothers: Larry Culpepper and wife Ruth Ann of Sheridan, Donald Culpepper and wife Mollie of Sheridan, Kenneth Culpepper and wife Cindy of Tyler, Texas, Christopher Culpepper of Little Rock; half-brother Cody Culpepper of Houston, TX; and half-sister Laura Jane Owens and husband Mike of Katy, TX, and special nieces and nephews and great-nieces and great-nephews in both Sheridan and Texas.
     Harry loved his God; his family; his friends, including special friends, Dan and Pam Freeman and their daughters; his garden, especially his muscadines; all birds which came to his feeders, and especially the hummingbirds. Harry also loved to travel and in June of this year, in spite of problems he was having with the cancer, because they had not seen where he lived in El Paso and had not been to the Grand Canyon, he wanted to be the one to show it to them, he took his wife, his granddaughter and her parents on a driving trip to the Grand Canyon via El Paso, Old Mexico, Carlsbad, Sandia Peak, White Sands, etc. and returning through Oklahoma and Springfield, Mo., to visit his daughter Virginia.
     Visitation and the funeral service will both be Sunday, January 8, 2006, at the First Baptist Church in Sheridan, with burial in the Center Grove Cemetery. The visitation will begin at 1:00 p.m. and the funeral service will immediately follow at 3:00 p.m. Harry loved this church family and has been a hardworking, involved member for many years. The family will be at home at 257 Grant 270040, Sheridan, Arkansas. A special thanks from the family to Dr. Larry Mendelsohn and his staff, Dr. John Brizzalaro and his staff, Dr. John Tedford and his staff, the Baptist Home Health and Hospice. Memorials may be made to the Gideons, the Sheridan First Baptist Church.2
