“Red” Godsey –

Winston or “Red” as he is better known grew up on a farm in Boston, VA, an area between Pungoteaque and Craddockville, VA during the 1940’s. These were the last years that corn was cultivated with a mule drawn cultivator.

Red worked various jobs in his youth such as auto and truck mechanic work, changing tires, working on farm equipment and electrical work. All these jobs prepared him to open his own business in 1968, Godsey’s Auto and Marine located in Accomac, VA. There he worked on cars, trucks, inboard boat motors and had a wrecker service and salvage yard. In 2014, he sold the business and retired after 46 years in business.
