    "Pedro" Boggs, I was so surprised to see his passing in the paper this morning. He was good friends with my sister, and I remember Roger, Curtis Allred, Robin Hawley, Joey Steele, and David "Fos" Presnell from high school. They all ran together. Curtis and Roger were in business together, and Curtis was married to my sister. Those were the days. I remember when he was at Fort Fisher AF station and when he would come with Curtis to our home in Burlington. John Hutton

    One great guy, so very sad to hear of his passing, to say he will be missed would be an under statement. R.I.P.

    Many years ago Pedro and I played on a midget football team together. He played fullback and Curtis Allred was quarterback. They both would sit on the bench filing their steel cleats to make they sharpe. Kept up with him through the years. He did well and was a great human being.
