We are so sorry to hear of your loss. My father, Paul Michaux (Chicken Paul) worked with Big Red at WPS of Allenport Plant. He respected him and they were great friends. I am his daughter Lisa, I did not know Big Red but often heard my dad speak of him and how strong he was. I am condoling in respect of my father, whom has dementia and would not know this if i told him. You have our deepest sympathy in the time of your loss.

Sorry for your loss. I worked along side "Big Red" at Wheeling Pitt on the tandem mill. We were good friends. He got us out of numerous jams on the mill. You could always count on his brut strength to do the heavy lifting. He was a tireless worker who never missed a day of work. I could always count on "Big Red." He wanted to go go go. Sometimes I had to slow him down and he would say "Everything is OK Denny" with that big smile of his. I'm going to miss "Big Red" and the friendship we had together. Dennis Kline, Rostraver Twp.
