I remember red from the mid to late 90s. I was i believe one of his closest friends. I can still see him jumping to his feet whenever we watched a ball game when the national anthem was played. He had many picures of his proud time in the marines. I met him working for the local saw mill and remember when he met deedee. I didnt know her very well as he moved in with her soon after but i do remember she made him very happy. He had a lot of love to give. They were very good together. I and my children will miss him very much. And to the family and friends i am very sorry for your loss.

My heart is heavy with grief for this tragedy. Red was a lovely man, always smiling with a twinkle in his eye and a joke on his lips. He adored his wife, Lesley (Dee Dee) and the 2 of them were inseparable. They exemplified friendship and hospitality. I had been a guest in their home several times, even overnight. Red waited on Les & I like we were queens. And, what a chef he was!! He was a proud marine, yet not too macho to come to my house for a Tea Party. I was looking forward to seeing them more when they moved into the mobile home park by my house. I will miss you Red & Lesley, so very much.

I am very sorry to say I never met your parents. But I wish I had. Just the sad story I have heard and read, they were very special & loving people. Our prayers are with you in this sad time in your life. May the example of their love for each other give you strength and courage to continue on...
