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.
