So sorry to hear of Red's passing. He was a great friend to my husband (Gene) and to me as well. He always sat with us at the Golden Emblem meetings. He will be truly missed. Prayers to the family.

Red worked for me as the Paymaster for the Toledo plant and he was an outstanding Paymaster and a friend to all he served. He was fair, straight forward, and always showed care and concern when dealing with people. Our payrolls were extremely complex for the five unions, but Red handled them all and did so with a smile. No question on my mind that he will be missed by his family and large circle of friends. I will miss him even though I have not seen him in 3-4 years walking the metro parks. My sincere condolences.

Dear Mike and family,
I knew your Mom and Dad from Christ the King beginning many years ago. I shared a March 5th birthday with your Mom. In later years I would run into your father and he never failed to have a big smile on his face. I so respected him.
In the early CK years I would see him at everyone of your games supporting you and I'm sure he continued this with your siblings and children.
I'm sorry for your loss. I'm sure he was a bright light to your family and he will be missed.

Your mom and dad were among my favorite neighbors here at Timbers Edge in Sylvania. Your dad served on the Board of Directors. And, then, of course, I was blessed to know your parents when I was with Comfort Keepers. Your dad was so dedicated to your mom; and, it was a delight to work with your family. Please accept my condolences in the death of my friend, Red.
