After the war he went to work for Bell Telephone Co. and still helped his family and friends.
Red loved fishing and hunting and especially his friends at Eagles in South Glens Falls.
Survivors include his sister Pearl Fragassi of Glens Falls, his brother Alvin (Connie) Winslow of Fl., his sister-in-law Zadie Winslow of South Glens Falls and many nieces and nephews.
Per Red’s wishes there will be no calling hours or funeral service. There will be an interment service in the spring.

To Tammy Walsh, again thank you for making Red’s last days everything he wanted.
