A proud member of "America's Greatest Generation." He served our country during WWII as a military policeman in the states guarding German P.O.W., and retired General Foreman of Masonry US Steel Homestead works where he worked for 42 years. He was a longtime resident of McMurray, PA and a member of St. Benedict The Abbott Church. "Red" was a dedicated and loving husband, traveling daily to be with his bride, Olga, at Sunrise. He was a great father and was proud of having all eight of his children graduate from college, many with advanced degrees. He loved to garden in the summer, read voraciously, and did crossword puzzles and handiwork year round. "Red" was an avid Steeler and Notre Dame fan. He was a very proud graduate of Pittsburgh Central Catholic High School, class of 1940, and will be sorely missed by all that knew him. Special thanks to Dr. Mally for his support over the years.
