Red was a loving and devoted husband and father. He is a Vietnam Veteran, and was a coal miner for 21 years, but his most loved job was on December 24th each year. Red loved to hunt, fish and spend time with his family. Red's laughter, love and kind heart will be greatly missed by all who love him, knew him and ever sat on his lap at Christmas. Heaven has gained a good man.
