Mr. Tepper died on Tuesday, July 6, 2021 at Decatur Morgan Hospital.  He was born September 18, 1940, in Baltimore, Maryland, to William Paul Tepper and Anne Naomi Wilkins Tepper.  He was employed for 20 years as a technician for Xerox Company and was then employed as an educator for Calhoun Community College for 20 years, prior to his retirement.  "Pop" was so proud of his family and boasted about them as often as possible.  He left us just three days before the celebration of 60 years of marriage to his beautiful bride and best friend.  He was a teacher, a minister, a handyman, a car enthusiast, a gardener, our resident weatherman, and a Crimson Tide fan.  We will miss his laugh, quick wit, cautious concern and evangelistic spirit.  We are forever grateful for the sweet memories and the legacy of love he leaves behind.
