|Les, Lillian and Teddy 1943
I am very happy to say we have found him. That is, he
found me through this web site. On Monday Oct 20, 2008 he emailed me. That is a day my sis and I will remember.
We had been looking for him so long.
|Teddy & Friend Glen 1946-1947 ?
Les, Lillian, and Teddy moved from Portland to Corpus Christi possibly during the first half of 1945. I
do remember visiting my uncle Snooks down by the coast in Texas. He had a band and sometimes worked out on a boat. Les worked
at the Naval ship yard in both Portland and Corpus Christi, and a transfer may have prompted the move. They originally lived
on North Beach in Alexander Court[s], and probably lived there until 1948 when they moved to an apartment in North Corpus
Christi, where Teddy attended Kindergarten.
|James edmund (Teddy) Goode 1948 ?
Les and Lillian separated in 1949, and she and Teddy went
to live in Birmingham, Alabama. They initially lived with Lillian's sister, Frances Lavas and her husband, Mike, along with
their daughter, Beth Ann (Fiander), and Lillian's mother (Etta Agnes Armstrong) and father (Arthur Thomas Harmon Sr.) who
had moved there from Maine. Teddy attended the 1st-4th grades at St. Paul's Catholic School in Birmingham.
Les had a strong love for playing music and almost always
had, or played in, a band. I'm not sure he really wanted to make money doing it, but it was certainly a passionate hobby.
He had an ability to play many different instruments including piano, trumpet, tenor saxaphone, clarinet, drums, and violin.
There may have been others that I can't remember.
