An all around good guy for Verona Boro; always very visible in emergencies an keeping everyone safe. He was one of the men, who when growing up in Verona, made you feel safe and secure in your bed at night. If the fire whistle went off, you trusted Red would lead the men to get the job done. Condolensces to his family.
