Obituary

AUGUSTA, MAINE
Edward Arthur Redman, age 79, passed peacefully Saturday, January 12, 2019 following an extended illness. He was born in Augusta on July 1, 1939 son of the late John E. and Neva G. (Crooks) Redman. Ed was a loving husband, father, granddad, son, uncle, godfather and friend. A member of the Cony High School Class of 1958, he lettered in football, basketball, and track. Proud to be called a veteran, he served in the Naval Reserves followed by three years in the U.S. Army helping to support his mother and grandmother. He was stationed at Fort Dix, Fort Benning, Fort Monmouth, and finally Fort Shafter for “Weather” Observation. He married his high school sweetheart, Louise Dostie on March 5, 1960 having met her on the Chizzle Whizzle Booth committee. In 1965, Mr. Redman earned a Bachelor of Science in Education from Farmington State Teachers College where he played soccer and basketball. He completed his Master’s in Education at the University of Maine in 1971.
His first teaching jobs were at St. Albans Elementary and Readfield Elementary where he coached basketball and baseball. He taught math, history of Maine, and science at Lou Buker Junior High School from 1971 to his retirement in 1986. While at Buker, he started the intramural sports program so all kids would have a chance to play. After his teaching career, Ed started his own carpentry business completing many projects in the greater Augusta area. Mr. Redman was a communicant of St. Augustine Catholic Church where he also taught CCD including his daughter’s confirmation class. Always supportive of his daughter’s activities, he enjoyed transporting the cheering squad to many away football and basketball games. He loved his family fiercely and looked forward to hosting annual 4th of July events and sharing his passion for Lionel trains. He was especially proud to help his grandsons with their Pinewood Derby Cars and Eagle Scout Projects being honored as an Eagle Scout Mentor.
He was pre-deceased by his parents, brother, Robert G. Redman, two sisters Johnna Wood and Alyce Burns.

My memories are of the Cony Football team, as I look over there is Eddie - and he accepted me even when I had to prove myself to others. Coming from Portland and trying out for the football team here was no easy feat. Thanks Ed for all the good memories of our fantastic Cony Football team. May your family experience happy memories as well. RIP my friend.

Mr Redman’s Vanderweide students

Mr Redman made a lasting impression in the lives of this group of sibling students. We recall his kindness and ability to teach and get us to enjoy math. If a life is measured by the people you made a difference to, Mr Redman had a giant (maybe infinite) life. Thank you and God Bless

We are so sorry for your loss. When this happens in our family we need more than human strength. God and his Son can provide what we need. Please review these scriptures : John 5:28-29 “Do not be amazed at this, for the hour is coming in which all those in the memorial tombs will hear his voice 29 and come out, those who did good things to a resurrection of life, and those who practiced vile things to a resurrection of judgment.” Revelation 21:4 “And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes,and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
