Feb. 19, 1925 – Feb. 1, 2014

Red was born in Rosebud, Arkansas, to Bessie and Rube Edwards and raised in a large family.
During World War II, Red served in the U.S. Army, 34th Infantry Division 133 Regiment, 2nd Battalion, Heavy Weapons Company. Red landed in Anzio and was involved in the liberation of many cities and towns throughout Italy, receiving two Purple Hearts during duty time in Italy.
Following WWII, Red worked in the Kaiser Shipyard in Richmond. He later worked as a cabinetmaker and carpenter in the East Bay, retiring to Dixon in 1975 with his wife Doris (Chance). His first wife Doris, mother to daughter Marsha, passed away in February 2001.
Red met his second wife, Elizabeth “Betty” Mansfield, while working out at the Sutter Health Physical Therapy Center. They married in Dixon on June 7, 2002. They enjoyed several extended trips to Hawaii and road trips to the Mendocino coast.
Red leaves behind his devoted wife, Betty; daughter Marsha and son-in-law John Rubins; grandsons Daniel (Karen) and Brian; and great-grandsons, Nolan and Nash. He is also survived by his sister, Reba Brady and brother Earl Edwards of Arkansas and his cousin Sherman Love, of Clear Lake. His sister Bonnie Smith preceded him in death.
Red and Betty have resided in their home in Davis with support from caregivers. The family would like to thank Dr. Allison Alcalay, Sutter Hospice and caregivers Lo, Dee, Barbara and Jennifer.
