Uncle Red,

One of my earliest and fondest childhood memories is coming down with the family from Wisconsin to visit you and Aunt Wilma. You’d always run and get dozens of long johns from Donut Bank for us kids! You always cracked everyone up... I remember Aunt Wilma made a special dinner and you said “it’s good honey, just don’t make it ever again”. Only you could get away with that! You will be missed and remembered by everyone who knew you.

Uncle Red always had a smile, a hug , and chocolate kisses for us when we visited. The man we remember was kind, humble and a great human being....never asking much for himself and tried to do no harm to anyone... a true giver without expecting anything in return. A tough old coot who would never quit. Rest In Peace Uncle Red and you were loved by so many. Mike and Jeannie utley
