In memory of
Jon David "J.d." Redman
Jon David "J.D." Redman Wadesville - Jon David "J.D." Redman, left us here on earth, October 15, 2020, to miss him forever after. He was the 5th child born to David D. and Roberta (Cowen) Redman, on April 29, 1937, in Wadesville, Indiana. Looking back…where has time taken this handsome young man, riding his horse Tonya and driving his first car, a 1949 Ford, that he and his brother refurbished, painted black with wide white wall tires. Along the way he married and raised 3 sons. J.D. was a very hard worker. Always had a large garden he shared with many. Being raised in the country he was a hunter also, especially raccoons. He was a member of the Posey County Coon Club. J.D. was a carpenter by trade, retiring from Local 90, while working for TMI. He built his own home near Oliver, not too far from where he was born and raised. He was a farmer at heart! Helping a neighbor in need was something he liked to do. Surviving J.D. is his companion and wife of 49 years, Carole L. (Donaldson) Redman; sons, Rodney D. (Elizabeth) Redman and Jon E. (Shelby) Redman; grandchildren, Rodney Jr. (Joni) Redman, Kristy (Doug) Fanguy, Amanda (Aaron Market) Redman, Brooke (Coree) Schweikarth, David and Aurora Redman, Jacob Spieker; Eight great grandchildren; sister, Sherry (Bill) Rosenbarger; sister-in-law, Naomi Fisher; nieces and nephews, Christa Cohrs, Rick and Nick Ramsey, Dava Dalporta, Juli McAdams, Randy and Dana Thornburg, Beth Frazier, Shannon Shoemaker, Patrick Monarch, Greg, Robin, and Hope Raber, Brendan and September Fox, Shauna LaFoon and Brandi Fisher. Preceding J.D. in death were his parents; son, Mark Ellis Redman; sisters, Bettye Stiles, Jenny Lou Thornburg, Colleen Monarch, and Idamae Davis; brother, Leo Mack Redman; niece, Phyllis Harvey; nephews, Jeff Raber and Roger Thornburg; grandparents, Leo and Esther (Alldredge) Cowen, David E. and Ida (Williams) Redman; father and mother-in-law, Oval "Donnie" and Evelyn (Buchanan) Donaldson. Carole would like to thank a special friend, Robin Key, for all her help, and Jon Redman especially, for being there daily to do whatever needed to be done; without Shelby, Jon and I would not have been able to keep him at home. She stayed for 3 weeks straight. Also to thank the Deaconess VNA Hospice, Dr. James Rice and Nurse Gina. Per J.D.'s request there will not be a memorial service. Memorial contributions may be made to The Posey County Humane Society or a charity of your choice. Condolences may be made online at www.AlexanderNorthChapel.com .
