Glen R. Redman Obituary
Glen R. Redman, 80, passed away Saturday, Feb. 11, 2012, at the Bruce McCandless Colorado State Veterans Nursing Home in Florence, Colo. He had been a resident there since October 2006.
Glen was born Aug. 16, 1931, in Merrill, Ore., to Joseph A. and Ethel E. (Kamared) Redman. He is survived by his daughters Martha R. Young, of Seattle, and Janet R. Kovacik, of Florence, Colo.; granddaughters Brenda L. Waggoner, of San Diego, and Melinda R. Smith, of Ventura, Calif.; brother Alen E. Redman and wife, Kathy, of Billings, Mont.; and aunt Eva M. Harland and cousin Bill C. Holt, both of Cañon City, Colo. He was preceded in death by his wife, Marilyn; his parents; and brother William J. Redman.
He will be deeply missed and remembered for his sense of humor, gentle nature, storytelling, and remarkable career in military research and development.
