Red died Mar. 12, 2001, in Cincinnati, days shy of his 81st birthday.
He grew up in Nashville, Tenn., and attended Montgomery Bell Academy. Following a prep school year at Hun, Red entered Princeton with the class.
His education was interrupted by WWII. A bombadier-navigator on B-24s, he was shot down during a mission over Europe and was held in various German prison camps for almost a year. Red's business career included stints in banking, Ingram Oil, and a stock brokerage firm. He was a fine golfer, winning many local and club championships, and was also an ardent fisherman.
Survivors include his wife, Anne; three sons, William Jr., Horace, and James; a daughter, Elizabeth Dingess; and 13 grandchildren. To the entire family, we extend our deepest and most heartfelt condolences.
The Class of 1943
