This is my uncle Sonny. His first wife was Barbara Dean Tubbs and they had four beautiful girls: Debbie, Pam, Donna and Teresa. We used to visit them a lot when I was a kid.
Sometime in the 1970's Sonny began living with a woman named Flo and her daughter Penny. I believe they were together long enough that Flo became his common law wife.
His third wife was for many years known as Shirley but her real name was Dorothy Daniels. She was a very sweet woman and she predeceased him by 6 years.
