I worked with Red and his son Mike at Michelin. Red was very enjoyable to work with. I enjoyed many good laughs with him.

My deepest sympathy to the family of "Red". I think Daddy knew Red at Abbeville Mills and if I remember, he did alot of wiring for us at the old house at Monterey back in 63. I work at the Oconee Nuclear Station and yesterday a friend of mine that still works here,Chuck Powell, remembers Red from construction days back in the late 60s, early 70s. Again, so sorry about the passing of Red.

I don't remember the exact date I first visited the Jones' (for Sunday dinner of course), but I do know that one visit is all it took for me to realize I was in the presence of "family". Rest in Peace Papa Red- You have fought the good fight, finished the race and kept the faith.
