Red was most proud of his children and grandchildren. Red was an extremely hardworking man, a licensed master plumber, owner and operator of Red’s Plumbing and Red’s Paintball. Red was an avid hunter and paintball player. Red was a motorcycle safety instructor who loved to ride and rebuilt his 1976 Harley bolt by bolt. His grandkids and kids knew that he could fix anything and nicknamed him MacGyver. Red was always willing to help anyone. After retiring from Odessa-Montour School District as Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds, Red became involved with the Town of Veteran Board, and was instrumental in getting a grant for solar power and an electric car charger for the Town.
