My Precious Kiowa Relatives:
Yesterday's Blessed Sabbath Day, many were reminded again of the uncertainty of our life's journey.  Our hearts were saddened by the sudden news of our Brother's Home-Going.  We cling to the legacy left by our folks of loving one another and praying for one another.  "Red" was respected by so many.  His love and concern for his Kiowa people and all tribes was genuine.  We lift our hearts and minds in one accord praising Our Heavenly Father for a long fulfilled life.  What a joy was his upon his entrance into eternal paradise with all the folks meeting him.  God Bless You All.

To Aunt Shirley and family , you are in our prayers and my God be with you all in the days to come.  It is SO true to treasure your family while they are on this earth.  I was so thankful that Uncle Red got to laugh with my grandbabies Saturday.  As I sat there listening I thought I needed to take a picture of the sweet conversation going on and I am glad I did.  Uncle was a sweet sweet soul.  His kind and loving heart touched so many.  He is the Uncle you always look forward to see.  I will sure miss him.

My deepest sympathy to Red’s family! Prayers for all of you.  He will be missed the last time I seen him was at Hop & Sack he came over where I was putting gas in my car and we talked a few minutes! He always had a smile and something to say to you or just aggravate you a little but always we laughed about what he was saying or asking. I will miss seeing him, he was a friend. Shirley just know he always had a smile waiting for everyone and was a joy to be around! He will definitely be missed by all of us!!!!!

Hobart, OK
We are so sorry to hear about the passing of Red.  We became acquainted with Red as he would pick up the seed wheat every year.  It was evident that Red was a diligent and conscientious worker as he would climb up on the semi-trailer every time to ensure the seed was loaded correctly and efficiently.  Few workers today are devoted to working so hard with their hands and being content with the same employer for so long...48 years...amazing!! Red was always a pleasure to do business with and we often enjoyed having friendly discussions on our favorite sport rivalries! Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

My deepest condolences to you Shirley and your sons. I graduated 3 years after Red and know your father and your brother Curtis. I last visited Red in 2014 at the school reunion. Clarence came over to me several hours later extended his hand and introduced himself and told me he was named after his father's friend Clarence Walker which I remember being as commendable.  as
