Dear Mary Jean, Jack, Kevin, Mimi,
Candy and I extend our deepest condolences to you during this difficult time. My classmates and I were blessed to not only witness big time exciting hoops under Red, but blessed to know him as a super person as he was very visible and approachable on campus. I also remember visiting him at his office (when he was also Athletic Director) and one could count the Staff Members on the fingers of one hand. And he taught classes. He did it all. On the court, a tenacious competitor. Off the court, you couldn't find a more gentle, caring, big hearted human being. Red, we will always have a very special place for a very special guy in our hearts. Thanks for ALL you did for
Creighton Hoops, CU Athletics, and Dear Ol' CU.

With Deepest Sympathy and with the Lord's Love,
Gary Joe and Family

Red was head coach and AD when I was a freshman at Creighton- for me he'll always be the ultimate face of Creighton athletics. All of us- fans, alums, staff and students- owe him a great deal for where the University is today in athletics.

Red and I were contemporary students at St. Ambrose. Seeing him here, in Omaha, was always a memorable and pleasant experience. My thoughts are with his family.

McManus Family,

Red lived just a block away from me as I grew up. He was my idol and role model. He influenced my entire life, including coaching, my faith, and the way to treat people. I know he lives on in the lives of many others. My deepest sympathy for your loss.
