Dearest Doris,
Our heartfelt love for Red will live forever... every church service and party was appreciated all the more with the presence of you and Red. Your love for one another enhanced us all. Both of you have the generous gift of kindness, cheerfulness, consideration and genuine caring that touches us all deeply and I will forever remember Red in the kindest of ways. My mother, Doris Schoel, told me before I visited St. Thomas, the first time, " I want you to meet Doris and Red ... the kindest people you would ever want to know" and as usual, she was absolutely right.
Doris, how about we share an afternoon over a cup of tea or coffee, and sit a while one day soon. Please call me when you feel up to company. The sunny afternoons are longer now to bring us the touch of healing. 610-589-4236.
We love you my dear.
Linda and Peter Beck, Doris Schoel (dec. mother), and family.

My sympathy goes to your family. I remember Eugene as my elementary school bus driver. He was always kind and yet remained in control of the bus. He never allowed bulling. I am the youngest girl in the large Roth family that lived near Morgantown when we were growing up. Eugene ( I think we called him "Red" ?) was always protective of my brother Dwight and I when we were on the bus.. I also think he was a friend of my brother, Lowell Roth? So, know that he made this shy little girl feel safe and respected on what could sometimes be a frightening bus ride. Mary Roth Leader

I’m shocked by the news. I use to work for Red at Crossroads Service Station when I was in High School and Bowled with him on Thursday nights at Blue Ball Lanes. He was a great guy and he had a contagious laugh. He was a very generous man. Prayers to his family. May you RIP Red.
