Robert Lee Redmond was born to Versie and William Redmond in Lexington,\r\nMississippi on October 26, 1931.\r\nHe was raised in Detroit, Michigan by his aunt, Clara, and her family. He worked at\r\nthe Highland Park Chrysler Plant, mostly in the upholstery shop. He was married to\r\nRainey until her death in 2009. Together they had four children.\r\nIn Detroit, they learned about Jehovah and symbolized their dedication by water\r\nbaptism as Jehovah's Witnesses in 1981.\r\nIn 1985, upon early retirement, the family relocated to Morrilton, AR. Soon,\r\nthereafter, he began his favorite work in the full-time ministry, volunteering many\r\nhours each month preaching and teaching Bible truths. Many across the county,\r\nand especially the local McDonalds, knew him by his preaching and teaching work.\r\nHe also spent much time with volunteer construction projects, building houses\r\nof worship known as Kingdom Halls all over the state. For many years he served as\r\nan elder in the Morrilton Congregation, instructing and encouraging those in the\r\ncongregation.\r\nAfter losing Rainey in death, he found comfort and joy in marrying Barbara. With\r\nthis marriage, he added two more daughters to his family.\r\nUntil the end, he maintained his relationship with Jehovah by his prayers, meeting\r\nattendance, and association with friends virtually and in person. He loved singing\r\nthe Kingdom songs, and he sang them with gusto.\r\nHe was preceded in death by his mother, father, and aunt who raised him-Clara;\r\nsister-Blanche, and brother-Tom.\r\nHe leaves behind his wife: Barbara, of Arkansas; Children: Runako Johnson, of\r\nFlorida (Micro); Ramille Redmond, of New York; Rhondi Redmond, of Michigan;\r\nRiley Redmond, of Arkansas; Camille Hairston, of Arkansas (Cory); and Victoria\r\nWilder, of Washington, D.C.; Grandchildren, all of Florida: Ayana Stewart (Samuel),\r\nAnesa Johnson, and Aric Johnson; Siblings, all of Tennessee: Shirley Gallagher,\r\nFlora Lee, and MacArthur Lee; many cousins, and a number of friends from all over.\r\nAs he sleeps in death in Jehovah's memory, we look forward to welcoming him\r\nback when all of Jehovah's promises for the earth will be fulfilled.\r\nA Zoom Memorial Service will be held on August 7, 2022.
