He is survived by his four children: David Harper, Michelle Harper, Cheryl Bender, Danielle Wilt, and 8 grandchildren.

He received the nickname "Patches" because of this. Butch then became the conduit for those in the community who wanted to donate their time and resources to those in need but didn't know what direction to turn. He created the "Act of Kindness" award to recognize those who had been giving so much of themselves. The award was given to locals and around the world to Aurora Colo., Prescott Ariz., and Newtown, Conn. during their times of tragedy. It even made its way to a soldier in Afghanistan. He spent his own money on travel, for the awards and collages, but gave credit to the citizens of Pahrump. He was and "Act of Kindness" reporter for KPVM TV, News 46, & K-ACE Country Radio. Butch wanted to make sure that everyone knew about the loving people we had in our town. The public is invited to attend The Andre Butch Harper Memorial service Saturday, February 28th at 11am at the Pahrump Nugget Events Center.

Johnson, Ray Ervin  
RAY ERVIN JOHNSON Ray, 81, passed away Saturday, February 21, 2015, in the Pahrump, Nev. home he shared with his wife, Wanda. He was born January 17, 1934, in Centerpoint, Ark., to Fred and Olga Johnson. His childhood set the tone for his whole life--a life defined by the people he loved. His family moved from Arkansas to the west in search of better opportunities when he was 12 years old. He attended school in Bakersfield, Calif., where he met the woman he would try to keep up with for 60 years, Wanda Bridges. Their family would eventually grow to include four children and many beloved grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and friends. Ray, whose family called him "Mickey Mouse," had a strong intellect and natural affinity for anything mechanical. In spite of his gifts, he was forced to leave high school without a diploma to join the workforce and support his family. His determination spurred him to succeed as a manager in the aerospace industry. He was especially passionate about his work on the space shuttle. Ray's ingenuity made him a perfect person to work on aerospace projects, which required his mechanical skills and his ability to "make it fit." He played as hard as he worked; his hobbies included fishing, camping, boating, and off-roading in his dune buggy. He also loved to tinker with cars and tend his plentiful gardens. His fascination with technology ran the gamut from CB radios to gaming consoles to personal computers and all things internet. He could make anything work, even when no one else could. Ray never met a stranger and could make anyone laugh. He and Wanda made friends from coast to coast. In the last 20 years of his life, he collected even more at the casino and around Pahrump. The greatest joy in his life was the time he spent with all of the people he called family. He was preceded in death by his mother and father; brothers Herbert, Jack, and Thomas; daughter Angelica; and sister Louise. He is survived by his wife, Wanda Johnson; sons Lance (Pam) and Ted (Mary) Johnson; daughter Kathy Lawless (Robert); grandchildren Jeremiah and Pheadra Good, Brandon and Kristen Johnson, Jessica Lawless, and Mariah Bedford (Ashton); great-grandchildren Alexandra and Abigail Byrne; Paisley and Ty Johnson; sister Georgia White; and many other friends and extended family he cherished deeply. They love him very much and will forever. A memorial in his honor is being arranged for later this year. Visit facebook.com/rayervinjohnson . In lieu of flowers, please send gifts to Nathan Adelson Hospice.
