Farewell, Uncle Bert - you were always my favorite uncle. I'm sorry that I didn't come to visit as much as I know you wanted, but I always did hold you in a special place of my heart.

We were always excited to hear we'd get the chance to see "Uncle Bert"! You just had that special personality that made people like you. You were one of the good guys (no matter what you might have actually been guilty of!)

Go on, now, your brothers have been waiting for you! Oh, my goodness, what a reunion that is going to be! I'll always love you, Uncle Bert!

I miss our trips to Kentucky and all the stories that you use to tell. You have always been part of our family. I miss all the crazy jokes and card games and trips that we use to do. You are missed by my family. I think my dad misses you the most.
RIP Uncle Red

It’s been lovely reading these memories of dear uncle Red as I knew him. Him sitting at Nan’s in Woodbridge UK, me as a little girl, I often stood in amazement of how he spoke and sounded with that gorgeous American accent I’d really only ever heard on films or movies as he’d say. My thoughts go out to all you guys living close to such a massive character as he quite clearly was. Loving the pictures Melissa that you’ve shared and he really didn’t change much, including the cap. So pleased your little one got to meet him, and such a lovely picture of them together.
Thinking of you all, Anna, Paul and Pete, my dear cousins and especially on Friday the 24th...
Also thinking of Melissa and little Nick and Sara and Addie and Mya.
We will be with you in thoughts and prayers.
Love to you all at this hard time from us in England.

Uncle Bert was my favorite Uncle! One of my many memories of him was from back in the 70s. I was playing little league baseball at the time when he was visiting. Bert being an avid baseball fan asked if I wanted to go across the street and play pitch and catch. I was like...heck yeah! I told him I played second base but wanted to be a pitcher. So he said let's see what you got. Well after about 10 pitches he said have you been practicing pitching? I said not that much. He said yeah I can tell! And we both laughed about it. So he just threw pop up balls etc for me to catch. Loved Uncle Bert!! Hes in Heaven having a beer and talking sports to who ever will listen. RIP!

So sad to learn that Red has passed on.
We were introduced to him when he was stationed at RAF Bentwaters, England.
He has given us many fond memories especially when we stayed at his Houston home in 1992. He took us to many interesting places and kept his promise that if we got to the USA he would take us to Graceland.
So many wonderful memories.
He also taught us Brits how to Barbecue and make a good sauce.
Red was a kind and thoughtful man and will never be forgotten.
Our thoughts are with his family and friends.
Val, Derrick and family.
Bramford, England.
