Memories about Theodore Lattin:
Harold Lawrence McPheeters (1923- ) said: "Teddy worked in The New York Telephone Company and would call long distance all the time, to keep in touch with family members. He would say he was testing the telephone lines. He went to Russia when he was in the Navy during WWI. He took many pictures of the families and when he showed me the pictures he said that most of the people were dead from the Revolution."

Warren Raymond Nelson (1944- ) said: "He worked for the Telephone Company in New York and would take me to baseball games. He lived on Sea Island City and smoked a pipe and cigars. He was a quiet guy who liked to work in his garden and work on his car."

Geraldine Marie Winblad (1928- ) said: "He was a sweet man. We visited him at Philbert Beach in the Bronx. We used to go to the dances at his Masonic Lodge."

Leonard Andrew Lattin I (1925- ) said: "Teddy was a high ranking Mason. He worked for Bell Telephone and always wore a suit to work. His Christmas tree had blue bulbs on it."
