Louise, I am so sorry to hear of your family’s loss. I worked with Quencie for many years and he was a pleasure to know. Even though we both retired from Duke years ago, we always managed to stay in touch, even if it was just a Christmas card. I’ll miss you, buddy.

Jim and I were sad to hear of the loss concerning Quencie. Sympathy to the family and sure the Holy Ghost comforter has come to comfort the family. Quencie was a good loyal friend to Shoal River Bowling Center, especially to the Youth League. He was always encouraging with a smile, and ready to give excellent bowling tips as he himself was a accomplished bowler. Again, sympathy to the family for their loss.

Quencie was one of the kindest people I knew from Duke Field. Whenever we’d see him up town he always had a hug and smile and kind words. One of a kind. Will surely miss him. ♥
