I have known Jarvis since I was maybe 8 years old. He was married to my mother. Even though I wasn’t raised by my mother, I use to go visit every summer. I could remember seeing Redd walk home from the ship yard with the black lunch box. Redd has a laugh that was very distinguished. He use to love to play spades so he could talk junk! He will be missed a great deal!
