Denise, Hodee and Family - Our deepest sympathy in the passing of your Dad. We so enjoyed our visits with ''Red'' when he used to come to Harding (with his Truck camper) and we spent time at the Moose Lodge!! He was fun loving and a pleasure to talk to. As a WWII Army vet like my Dad- he had a lot in common and a wealth of knowledge and stories. I am happy to have known him and will remember him fondly. He lives on in all he''s touched. Love-Cher & Bill Ashton ~

I first met Spence when he led me through the degrees of Royal Arch Masonry and have enjoyed every one of the many times we did Masonic work together or met socially since then. After Red lost his eyesight, every time I saw him, all I had to do was speak to him, he would recognize my voice instantly and greet me warmly by name. I will miss his friendly grip. I grieve not for him after a long and well-lived life, but for you his family who will miss him so much.
