Harry Sykes Cline died peacefully September 7, 2023. He was born August 14,1940 in Camden, South Carolina to Joseph Frederick Cline and Catherine Sykes Cline. The family moved to Stony Point, North Carolina in 1949.
Harry earned his Eagle Scout at age 15 and graduated from Stony Point High School in 1958. He attended Davidson College where he was the catcher on Davidson’s baseball team. He was named MVP in 1962 and was selected first team all-conference every year. He remained close to his teammates for the remainder of his life. He received the ROTC Distinguished Military Student Award, was the President of Sigma Chi fraternity and was VP of Davidson’s senior class. While at Davidson, Harry met Janie McMullen from Clearwater, Florida on a blind date. Janie was Davidson’s Sweetheart of Sigma Chi in 1962 and Harry’s fiance in 1965. After graduating from law school at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Harry married Janie on his 25th birthday in 1965. She designed and created his gold wedding band by hand when she was a counselor at Camp Merrie Woode that summer.
The couple moved to Thomasville, North Carolina where Harry practiced law. Daughter Catherine Tweed Cline was born in 1967 before Harry left for Vietnam. Harry was a Captain in the 131st Aviation Company, US Army, and was awarded two bronze stars. After the war, the family lived in Asheville where Harry resumed his law practice and their son Harry Sykes Cline, Jr. (Skip) was born in 1969. They moved to Clearwater in 1971 when Harry joined McMullen, Everett, Logan, Marquardt & Cline where he practiced real estate and estate planning law. The firm merged with Macfarlane Ferguson in 1993 becoming McFarlane Ferguson & McMullen. Harry was a member of the firm for the remainder of his career and served as its Chairman in 2006 and 2007.
Community and charitable involvement were lifelong priorities for Harry.

Harry had a wide range of hobbies including painting with oils and watercolors, carving wooden duck decoys and beekeeping. The bees ’culture and their impact on Janie’s garden fascinated him. He harvested honey and bottled it in jars with labels he drew for Christmas presents. Harry loved the competition and camaraderie of golf and tennis and enjoyed spending time on the water with family and friends. Harry adored his three grandchildren and taught them baseball, golf, painting and hearts. His grandchildren cherished their time together including countless “spend the nights for no reason.”
Harry weathered strokes and the loss of his beloved Janie in 2020 but his courage, love of people and humor endured. He was truly grateful for Joann Dohme, Jesse Hallman, Shay McAuley, Shawnda Meeks, Jackie Richo, Kayla Seib, Shayna Suljic, Darlene Thomas, and Shaneka White. Teresa Kelly and Janica Van Brocklin also played a key role in his health and happiness.
Harry was predeceased by his wife and son, his parents and his brother Rick Cline. He is survived by his daughter Tweed Cline

Clergyman & Family Man, “His Parish Had No Boundaries”
William (Bill) T. Iverson, Sr. passed away peacefully surrounded by family on August 21, 2023 at the age of 95. Born in 1928 and raised in Miami, Bill was the youngest of five born to Rev. Daniel and Vivian Iverson.
He graduated from Miami High, and received a BA from Davidson College. He completed his MDiv at Columbia Theological Seminary in 1952, and earned a PhD from New York University in 1976. He married Ann Oliver (d. 1995), and raised three children together.
Bill served churches in Georgia, Florida, New Jersey, and California, and taught at several seminaries. “Unconventional” describes Bill. He was pastor, church planter and scholar. Beginning from their family’s dining room table, Bill’s Parish had no boundaries. He never met a stranger as he visited in homes, walked in neighborhoods, even had luncheonettes in his Cross Counter ministry as a way to meet and love people. Bill modeled the walk that he asked others to walk. He always took people along when serving, modeling how to love and share God’s love. In 1969, Bill began a Field Seminary, where students learned about God and Man not in an ivory tower, but in the streets, in homes – incarnational – like God who put skin on. His faith in God was the source of his steadfast strength and love.
Bill is survived by his wife, Sylvia Iverson; his three children, Daniel Iverson III (Carol), William T. Iverson, Jr, (Liz), and Jennifer Lee Iverson; eleven grandchildren and 40 great-grandchildren.
A Memorial Service will be held on Sept. 16 at 3pm at Christian Community Presbyterian Church, 45 McWhorter St., Newark NJ,
On August 16, 2023, George Gustavus Kundahl, 83, died in Naples, Florida at Avow Hospice. George Kundahl was the beloved husband of Joy Kundahl, the father of Gustavus and Griffith Kundahl, and the dear grandfather of Kate, Caroline, and Harrison Kundahl.
George Kundahl was born in Washington D.C. on July 7,1940 and raised in Chevy Chase, Maryland until attending Davidson College in North Carolina earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in History in 1962. He attended the University of Alabama to obtain a Master of Arts in 1964 and a Ph.D. degree in Political Science in 1967.
George graduated from Army Command and General Staff College in 1980 and Army War College in 1983. From 1990-1993 he worked in the Pentagon as the Principal Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Reserve Affairs. He served as Chief of Staff of the Military Order of the World Wars from 1996-2000. He attained the rank of Major General in the US Army Reserve.
Along with his lifetime devotion to military service, George also served in government as a civilian during which he was a Budget Examiner at the Office of Management and Budget, and the Executive Director (1981-1990) of the US Securities and Exchange Commission.
George loved to travel and enjoyed living with Joy in the south of France for twenty years during which they made many friends and pursued a variety of interests. While there he authored The Riviera at War, which detailed the World War II experience in the French Riviera.
His passion for Civil War research and the example of his direct ancestor Captain John Morris Wampler inspired General Kundahl to write Confederate Engineer (2000), a detailed account of Wampler’s war experience, and one of the only books written about the unique perspective of a civil engineer. Later books on the Civil War that he authored include Alexandria Goes to War (2004) and The Bravest of the Brave (2014).
George will be dearly missed by his family and friends and fondly remembered as a loving husband, devoted father, and dear friend with a relentless curiosity, a prodigious drive, and an occasional flair for minor mischief.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that any donations be made to Avow Hospice online at avowcares.org.
