I’m so very sorry to learn of B2’s passing. I met him when he was at Britthaven and we became fast friends. I remember taking him to Duke Chapel to see the Messiah . Over the past several years I lost his phone number and his address. . I will always cherish my memories of him. He was a great guy. !

B Square’s spirit will always be with us at Poor Richard’s! I always loved seeing him in that corner lounge chair even in his Duke hat (we’re big UNC fans and alumnus). He always had a smile even through failing health. Thinking of you all during this difficult time. We’ll toast him tonight with fond memories.

Much love from this die hard Tarheel to my favorite Blue Devil. Peace and love to all of you, I will miss the friendly banter about our college rivalry, discussions about many other things, and sharing a beer with BB.

Condolence from Lucy Halterman on May 7th, 2020 10:20 am

I’m so sorry to hear this, Rob.
B was one of the first to welcome me to Manteo and was a blessing to me and my children.
He was cantankerous, kind, intelligent and a loyal friend.
He will be missed by all of us at Poor Richard’s and Manteo at large.
Sending you love.
Lucy Halterman
