Isabella Bartolucci, Taking Jesus Fishing: When Walter Davenport was four years old he wanted a playmate. He got one when his brother Ray was born. It’s been 74 years and they are still playing together. Walter Davenport remembers the day his baby brother Ray was born. It was late in the afternoon on August 30, 1939. He had been waiting four years to have a brother, someone to play with. It’s been 74 years since that day and Walter still has his playmate. The Davenport brothers own and operate a commercial fishing business in Northeast North Carolina. They are the only two employees.
