Great-grandchildren, Camillia Rose Quinn and Otis Lee Keller. Don was a man of faith devoted to his family. If you knew Don Redman, then you know that the size of his heart can only be beaten by the size of his dreams. He had the spirit of an entrepreneur and followed his passion in building his businesses. He felt lucky to have had the opportunity to use his gift to start his first business Arizona Medical Supply in 1963. As the business became very successful, he sold the business on his 49th birthday in 1984 His entrepreneurial spirit could not be tamed and he then launched Redman Power Chair in 1985. Don proudly served in the United States Coast Guard. In 1952, Don realized his dream of becoming a pilot. With his love, ambition and desire for airplanes, he became a pilot. Then I obtained the instrument flight rating in single and twin engine, fixed wing, jet aircraft and helicopter flight. Don had a passion for any automobile, especially one that was fast, shiny, and sleek. He enjoyed the camaraderie and education as he was a Rotary sponsor from Tucson. Don has made several contributions to Paul Harris Follows throughout his career with The Rotary Foundation. Additionally, Don was a 55 year member of Tucson Masonic Lodge #4, Scottish Rite and Sabbar Shrine. Although we miss him dearly, his family and friends are blessed to know that he is now with our Lord. They find great comfort in knowing that they will be reunited and will see him again. Family and friends will gather to celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers, our family would be honored if you made a contribution to your favorite charity in Don’s name.
