    I was a banker for Red for many years and got to know him personally. I was involved with his buying and selling lake properties and found him to be quite the character. I’m sorry I won’t be able to attend the funeral as I’m in Arizona for the winter but my thoughts will be in attendance.

    I known Red for the past twenty five years Lots breakfast at Cash-Wise North-side Bar and Grill in Detroit Lakes. He always had people laughing at his sense of humor. He could take crap and good at giving it back.He was always willing to give a anyone a helping hand, but sadden by the return. We will miss you dearly. GOD BLESS YOU MY FRIEND

  8. Dean S. Lee says:

    I’am his son and glad we had spend time this past August to visit in Detroit Lakes. His favorite meal of the day was breakfast most mornings that was at the Northside Bar and Grill in Detroit Lakes. He loved Detroit Lakes and thought Minnesota was the best state to live in. He was very comical and quite the character and will be missed.
