    Bryant Scott says:
    I've known Teeny for over 63 years. We survived boot camp and deployment in the Coast Guard where we shared good times and tragedies. He took me home with him to Bath where he introduced me to gigging in the creek and crabbing in the river and the local girls, one of which I married. We shared clothes, apartments, and then a house when we both were first married. We drifted apart in distance over the years but never lost that bond of affection and friendship. His passing leaves a hole in my heart as if we were blood related. Rest well my friend and my brother.

    Sorry for your loss. I remember "Teenie Boy" as I knew his name from his football days at Bath High. He was always very kind and loved good conversation as I remember. I've been in his home before he lived there, when Lin Roper lived there as we were buddies as kids. Teenie was a few grades ahead of me, but I remember his football playing as a very fast halfback for the Pirates. My dad was our Principal. God Bless you all during this time. Brad & Jeannette Forbes
