    Brenda and Curt I am so sorry for your loss. I’ve known Red my whole life and spent many hours with him while he and my dad would “shoot the sh$!” as they would say. I will not be able to attend. My mom Betty says she’ll be thinking of you.

    Red was a unique individual. He had many interests hunting, fishing, cars. He was a dedicated family man and terrific father. Red was loving and caring; blessed to be one of the few to make sure everyone was treated right; fairly and honestly and with respect. He loved practical jokes and liked to have fun. Others have gone before him and some will not be able to attend so I send their condolences & prayers for your family..
    Red has gone home, he is at rest and peace.

    I am sorry for your loss of Larry, I really enjoyed when he drove us in Lucy’s car to do karaoke, and to come to my karaoke gigs. I thought a lot of him.
