RAYMOND SAMUEL HARPER
Age 73, of Rialto, CA, passed away peacefully, surrounded by his entire family, after an extended illness on November 16, 2017. He was preceded in death by his parents Raymond and Phyllis Harper.
A native of Boley, Oklahoma, Raymond lived in San Bernardino, CA as a child and resided in Rialto, CA. at the time of his passing. Raymond owned Quality Transmission which he opened in 1970 on Mt. Vernon Avenue and worked there until his illness required his retirement in 2007.

Raymond was a gentle giant --- soft spoken with a kind heart. He deeply loved his family and friends. He is survived by his wife, Christine Blake-Harper; three daughters, Patrice Harper-McKinstry of San Bernardino, CA., Raychelle (Samuel) Addo, of Riverside, and Clarissa (Christopher) Agard of Apple Valley, CA; four sisters, Fredda (Arthur) Davis of Walnut, CA., Thelma (Webster) Guillory of Newport Beach, CA., Patricia (Keith) Nickols-Butler of Loma Linda CA; three brothers, Charles "Larry" of San Bernardino, CA., Michael of Antioch, CA., Edward of Concord, CA; one granddaughter and six grandsons.
