It is with sadness in our hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved father "Red" Walsh on Christmas Day. Being a man of faith, he joins the love of his life our mother JoAnn on a day of great spiritual significance.

Born and raised in the Mission District of SF, the youngest of five children born of Irish immigrants.

He leaves behind four sons, Mark, Tim, Jeff, and Kevin, 8 grand children, 7 great grand children. Baseball was the passion of his life.

Playing professionally for the San Francisco Seals and Milwaukee Braves, his most rewarding experience was coaching at Santa Clara University for 18 years with his good friend Sal Taromino. The confidence and inspiration he embedded in his players was a true gift.

He will be missed by all.
