Edward (Red) Senseney
World War II Veteran
Edward Senseney
Red Senseney entered into rest on April 11, 2010, where he joins his beautiful wife Wanda in Heaven.  Red was born in Santa Cruz, California, on September 17, 1925, and grew up in the San Jose area.  As a young boy, he loved riding all over San Jose with his buddies on their bicycles.  They would start their adventures as soon as their morning chores were done and not return ‘til well after dark!

Red joined the Navy on his 17th birthday where he served his county in the Pacific Theater.  After the war ended in 1945, he drove trucks in his early days, hauling cattle and sheep for M&M Trucking of Manteca, Rocha & Gilberts of Oakdale and later retiring from Gallo/Fairbanks of Modesto.

He was a proud member of the American Legion Post #0632 of Lathrop for over 30 years.  He was also a life member of Disabled American Veterans, Chapter Louis Levy #11, and a life member of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post #1051.

Red is survived by his children: Judy & John Hulsey of French Camp, Gerry Taggart of Georgia, Jessie & Debbie Senseney of Nevada and James Senseney of California; eight grandchildren: Jackie Cleary, Johnnie Howard, Jamie Gunter, Nancy McDuff, Jade Kendick, PJ Taggart, and Jeremy & Mindy Senseney; 13 great-grandchildren and one great-grandchild.

He had a zest for life, family and friends.  Red and Wanda traveled around the States and Mexico in their RV and sometimes they would travel in their beautiful gold Goldwing, free as the breeze.  Papa enjoyed camping, boating, fishing, woodworking, and anything that had to do with his family by his side.

A celebration in his honor will be held on Sunday, April 25 at the home of his daughter, Judy Hulsey, at 1812 W. Mathews Road in French Camp at 2 p.m.  Arrangements are being handled by Park View Funeral Home, 3661 E. French Camp Road in Manteca.
