Milford ‘Norris’ Teague, 83, of Kure Beach NC, passed away on September 22, 2015 at NHRMC with his loving family by his side.
Norris was the first of five children born to the late Macy and Dossie Teague, in Randolph County; NC on Aug. 23, 1932.
Norris married his high school sweetheart, Faye, and they moved to Wilmington Beach in 1963, when Norris was transferred with Trailways Bus Lines.  After leaving the bus line, the family moved to Carolina Beach where Norris owned and operated the Gulf station. In 1973 Norris and Faye became owners of the Sand Castle Inn, Kure Beach which they owned for more than 30 years, before selling the business 11 years ago. During the motel years, Norris rarely left the premises, believing that he had to be there to be sure things were “done right.” After selling the motel, they purchased a home across the street and Norris spent many hours sitting on his deck either people watching on the ocean side, or watching the cars go by on the street side.
He was very involved in island politics in the 70’s and 80’s, being the only man to serve on both Carolina Beach and Kure Beach town councils.
Norris is survived by his son Gary (Julie) and daughter Melanie (Michael Affemann), four grandchildren, Brandon Teague, Austin Teague, Alexei Affemann, Tatiana Affemann, sister Norma Smith (Bruce) and brother Farrell (Jean), and many nieces and nephews. He is predeceased by his wife of 61 years, Faye Teague, son Phil Teague, and brothers Thurman and Wayne Teague.
The family would like to thank his faithful doctors Neill Musselwhite and Ellis Tinsley, Jr. The memorial service was held at 1pm Saturday, Sept, 26, 2015 at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, 300 Harper Ave., Carolina Beach NC, 28428. Visitation was held at the church following the conclusion of the service.  Donations can be made to St. Paul’s United Methodist Church, Carolina Beach.
