Quinton made a special mark on his friends while living in Edenton, NC. He made the same wonderful image on my wife who met him for the first time ten years ago at our 40th High School Reunion. Quinton epitomizes the definition of kindness and character. He will always be remembered.

Faye, I am so sorry that you have lost your Quinton.
