Shortly after marrying Judy, he joined the U.S. Navy in December.

Prayers for the family. I knew Red for several years and then had worked with him at Bee. He was a great Boss and a joy to work for. He will be missed!

A man that knew how to do most anything, and worked hard to take care of Judy.

I remember so many great times with my Uncle Red and Aunt Judy growing up. Adventures at their country homes. Helping with the birds. And all around family time. Domino's and always lots of good food. I am very fortunate to have such wonderful memories. Goodbye Uncle Red and all my love to our family.
