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.

Through the years I have traveled to 31 countries globally. I've been riding motorcycles since the 60s. Since retiring I've ridden through all 49 States in North America and all the provinces of Canada. I've camped in over 50 of our national parks, hiked most of the Appalachian trail, been a scuba diver for the North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores, run the New York marathon, camped in Furnace Creek Death Valley, and fished in the fjords of Norway. Life has been better to me than I deserve. When it's over, I'll have no regrets. It's been a hell of a ride.....

After living for many years in Canton, Ohio, I recently moved back to Carolina. I now live on a quiet country road about 10 miles from Winston Salem.

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.

Those of us that knew her in high school were fortunate. Even though her social strata was far above mine, she always had a smile and a kind word. And that smile came from one of the most beautiful faces to stroll the halls of Broughton. She was, in every sense, a class act.

So sorry for your loss Ed. My wife's father died of ALS so I share your frustration regarding the lack of focus on this terrible disease. Our next donation will be in Betsy's name.

Another beautiful light has gone out. Kay was beautiful, there's no doubt, but I remember her honest and playful personality more than her physical beauty. She always made me smile. Rest well sweet Kay.

I knew Paul from Jr. high and Broughton. He was one of the good guys. Not showy, not flashy ..... Just a good guy. I should have spent more time with him. A good solid guy like Paul was worth 10 of the flashy ones. I wasn't smart enough to know that 50+ years ago. Rest well old friend.

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.
