I worked with “RED” at Pure, lots of good memories and lifetime friendships. Still remember Dori’s harty laugh. My sympathy to the Families.

To all the Meholic boys: My thoughts are with you in your time of loss. The memories came back to me when I read about Red’s obituary in the online Daily Press. He along with your mom were a very important part of my life when we were coming up. Again my thoughts are with all of you.

Steve, Bob, Allie and John,
I was very sorry to hear of “Red’s” passing, he was a really good guy. I know it’s tough to lose someone like Red but he’ll probably see Dorie soon.
My deepest sympathies,

To the Meholic family,

Red was a top notch guy.

We are sure that you are proud of the role that he played in your lives and the joy and support he brought to others.

You are in our prayers.

I did not know Red well but I do know that he and Dorrie raised four exceptional sons.

What a great guy! …..there’s a very special place in heaven for Red and Dorie Meholic and now they can share it together. I’ll always remember Red’s welcoming smile and his true love for his family and friends. In my mind’s eye I can see him standing right beside me with a fishing pole in his hands on the first day of trout season just like it was yesterday. Our deepest sympathy to all of his family and friends, I know he’ll be missed dearly.
