Adopted daughter, Eunice (Vallandingham) Angle (Spouse: Kevin), he may have not had a daughter, but she filled the spot.
Archie was a strong man and through all of his trials and tribulations he always demonstrated resilience and put others before himself. He was a caregiver to the late Berchman L. Guy and Eunice M. (Morris) Guy. Homestyle cooking was his trademark along with his famous cole slaw, potato salad, and stuffed ham. When he wasn't in the kitchen he would always be up for a Maryland styled crab cake. He loved canning and shucking oysters. He assembled each oyster in the jar with precision and once it was filled he could recite the quantity to perfection.. He worked at Guys Tavern as a bartender, masonry assistant to Bobby Long, mechanic alongside uncle Beanie Lathrum, and his last job residing at Woods Produce where the notorious "Country Sausage" was established.
