Dale Redmon Jr. was born to Dale and Ruth Redmon January 5, 1955 in Marshall, TX. On December 30, 2020 Dale, Jr. gained his angel’s wings and became whole again. He had lived 61 years of his life broke and disabled because of a car accident when he was 5 years old. His body was tired, and he succumbed to the complications from COVID.
Dale Jr. was a member of Mt. Arrat Primitive Baptist Church in Henderson. He was preceded in death by his parents and left behind many family, friends and loved ones. He is survived by his brother Richard and his wife Loraine Redmon of Tatum, brother Bill and wife Cindy Redmon of Tatum, sister Tammy and her husband Dale Koonce of Henderson, bro/cousin Sam and wife Dawn Craig of Lake Cherokee, 11 nieces and nephews and 22 great nieces and nephews.
For the last 4 years, Dale Jr. has lived in Treviso Transitional Care in Longview, and he loved it. He once told Richard, “This place is great and I have more friends than you!” He loved his Treviso family!
Dale Jr. was a lifelong Elvis Presley fan and not only knew, but would gladly sing his songs if given the chance. Dale Jr. loved traveling with his mother and father to Sacred Harp singings. They traveled all around Texas and as far as Alabama and Florida to singings. They loved going to each and every one, but the State Singing Convention that they helped host in Henderson was always special to them.
After Dale Jr’s dad passed in 1995, Dale Jr. and his mother were companions and cohorts, as they took care of each other in their home in Tatum.
Dale Jr. did not have an easy life, after being broken from the car wreck when he was 5, but he had a great life. Throughout his life, he had 17 brain operations, 7 body casts, multiple broken legs and arms, and a knee replacement, but never a broken spirit. His love of God and his family was first and foremost in his heart. He never said “What if” or “Why me”. He accepted the only life he knew. On December 30, 2020 at 2:30 p.m., Dale Jr. became whole again as he entered into heaven. There is no doubt of the reunion he had in Heaven. It is unimaginable for us here on earth. To see his Lord and Savior and his mother and dad again as an unbroken son is a thought we will long for. We will miss him here, but there is comfort in knowing that he heard the words, “Welcome home. Well done my good and faithful son.”
There will be a graveside service on January 9, 2020 at 10 a.m. at Harris Chapel Cemetery. As we are in this pandemic, masks and social distancing will be asked of all that attend.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorials in Dale Jr’s honor be made to Harris Chapel Cemetery, c/o Bill Redmon, P.O. Box 702 Tatum, TX 75691.
