Maurice H. "Red" Atwood, 80, of Indialantic, passed away June 10, 2013. Red was born in Bruce, WI January 6, 1933 to Charles and Edna Atwood.
He worked as a salesman for OK Tire Store in Indian Harbour Beach and was an avid fisherman. He served his country honorably in the U.S.A.F.
Red moved his young family to relocate to Indialantic from Minneapolis, MN in 1965. He began his own business and started to really enjoy his favorite hobby, fishing. He loved fishing on the beach and out in the ocean, but especially enjoyed fishing at Sebastian Inlet where he once held the flounder record on "Red's Rock".
Because of his caring and friendly demeanor, he met and became friends with so many folks that after his retirement, he could not go to any restaurant or store without someone spotting him and saying hello.
Red was a caring and loving father to his children and was devoted to his wife of 57 years, Lois. He was predeceased by his beloved "Lo Lo", in March 2012. Now, she has welcomed back her "Redhead".
He is survived by his children, Jeffrey C. Atwood (Claire and step-daughter Colleen) and Mary B. Best (Mark); grandchildren, Sam (Toccara) Best, Kimberly A. (Michael) Golda; and great-grand-daughter, Emma Rose Golda.
