DAN C. HARPER  Mr. Harper is the President and Chairman of the Board of Bellwood Memorial Park.  Dan has had a very distinguished career spanning over 50 years in Temple's funeral service industry.  As a community leader, he has served on numerous boards and advisory counsels. Mr. Harper is a member and serves as an elder of First Christian Church in Temple. He purchased Bellwood in 1977 and is proud to have many of his family members directly involved in Bellwood's operation.  While now semi-retired, Mr. Harper is still available most weekdays in the park office.
 
 
 
RAY D. HARPER  Ray is the Park Manager and serves as Secretary to Bellwood's Board of Directors.  He also serves as the park Sextant.  Mr. Harper has been an integral part of our operation for over 25 years.  Starting as a member of the park's maintenance staff, he has since held and mastered every position in the cemetery.  This gives him a unique advantage in his current role as Park Manager.  Away from Bellwood, Mr. Harper is an active member of Temple's Lions Club and has served recently as Chapter President and now advises on a regional basis.
 
 
 
EMILY HARPER TROTTER  Mrs. Trotter is our Office Manager and Receptionist.  When you call or come by the office, typically she will be there with a smile and a kind word to greet and help you.  Please feel free to stop-by or give her a call.
