Earl Enoch “Sonny’ Red Hail, Jr.

Earl Enoch “Sonny” Red Hail, Jr., Oneida, age 70, passed away peacefully on Friday, August 2, 2019 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Green Bay.  He was surrounded by family.


Sonny was born in Cheyenne River, South Dakota on April 15, 1949, a son of the late Earl E., Sr. and Lorraine Patricia (Skenandore) Red Hail.  He moved to Milwaukee and later to Oneida where he did custodial work for the Oneida Tribe. Sonny was care taker by nature, and will be sadly missed.

Sonny also leaves his brothers and sisters: Roger (Colleen) Red Hail, Gene Red Hail, Barbara Red Hail, Hehaka Red Hail, Roy (Violet) Red Hail and Carol Red Hail.  He is further survived by his grandchildren: Samual, Natalea, Sonny, Awenasah, Lorraine, Andrew, Lennex and Edward, many nieces and nephews, other relatives and friends.


Sonny was preceded in death by his parents, his brothers Michael and Melvin Red Hail as well as by an infant sister, Laura.


A celebration of Sonny’s life will be held at the ONEIDA SACRED BURIAL GROUNDS (101-499 W. Adam Drive, Hobart, WI 54115) on Sunday, August 11, 2019 beginning at 1 PM.  A feast will follow at the family residence at 4 PM.
