Red’s retirement day at Mount Hope, March 27, 2013. He was doing a little indoor practicing with his new fishing gear. The boys st the shop gave him a great send off.

I met Willie when I went to work at Mount Hope Machinery in 1999. Everyone in the shop referred to the man as Red. He was already a legend at that time, having already occupied the same spot there for over 30 years. He was a friend to everyone and he and his buddy Sam were absolutely the best in the business at their jobs and at making the new guy feel welcomed. Red’s devotion to his craft was surpassed only by his love for his wife and daughter. Those ladies were his reason for living. My heart goes out to Stephanie and she should know that there is nothing that I wouldn’t do for her at this time.
