Red was born on December 19, 1942 in Anderson County, Tennessee to the late Clyde Simpson Vandergriff and Coralee Hatmaker Vandergriff. He was a very special man.

He loved racing cars, laughing, and blowing air horns at family and friends to scare them. He also loved to sit and whittle. Red enjoyed flea markets, working on his vehicles and lawn mowers when he could, and watching wrestling. He loved to feed anyone if he had it except his Pepsi, Coke, and cakes, he didn’t like sharing those.
