Comments:

Atlantic Christian, ECU, NCSU, Walsh University......10 years US Navy, Viet Nam veteran, 10 years working for Ricoh, 20 years working for Diebold Inc.

Two tours in Viet Nam (one year in-country, 10 months on a destroyer)left quite a mark. I struggled to find focus for several years.

Relying on a strong background in electronics, I worked for a Japanese company (Ricoh) for 10 years during which I traveled extensively, before moving on to Diebold Inc. While with Diebold, I traveled throughout the US, Canada, South America, Europe, and Asia.

School Story:

My favorite teacher was also the scariest teacher I ever had....... Herr Watts. I did poorly in his class but when I went to college and made good grades, I would stop by to share them with him. The scary German teacher turned out to be one of the most gracious people I ever met. I wanted him to know how he had inspired me.

Since retiring in 2009, I've ridden my motorcycle in all lower 48 states, all of the Canadian provinces, plus Alaska. I've been through and/or camped in @40 of the national parks in the US.

So sad to see this. Kenny was a great friend. We really got to know each other when we attended Atlantic Christian. Super tennis player, super guy. He will be missed.

Eddie was a kind and gentle soul. It was evident to those of us who knew him all those years ago. His obituary is a testament to the boy we knew and the man he became.

Johnny was one of my best friends. The first band I played in consisted of Gene Craven and me on guitar, Ronnie White on drums, and Johnny on bass. We knew 2 songs when we played at Martin's 9th grade social. We were a hit. I think we played each song 5 times. We had so much fun in those early days. I was so sad to see his name on this list.

I've been away from Raleigh for many years and I just recently joined this reuinion site. To see Pete's name listed in the "In Memory" section really shook me. Pete was the piano/organist in one of the bands I played in during our Broughton years. He was such a great guy. His talent was obvious, but it was only the tip of the iceberg. He was smart, witty, mischievious, sly, funny, innovative, and an absolute joy to be around. He was a brother to all of us. I'm so sorry. It's a personal loss.
