Robert N. Redman was born Dec. 14, 1968, in Great Bend, Kansas, to Robert and Beverly (McNerney) Redman and passed away April 9, 2021, in Lincoln, at the age of 52 years, 3 months and 26 days. Robert attended school in WaKeeney, Kansas, and later at the Youthville facility in Dodge City, Kansas.
Robert worked at several jobs, but he was the happiest when he was building pallets through a program at Youthville. He later relocated to Hays, Kansas, to be near his mom and sister’s family, where he worked at Schilleci's Deli and Best Radiator Shop. He had such admiration for his employers who always treated him with kindness. Robert had a memory of an elephant. If he went somewhere, he always remembered the address from that time forth. You never got lost with Robert in the car. He remembered everybody's birthdays and phone numbers as well and he could recite them off the top of his head.
At the time of his mother's death, Robert moved to the Lincoln area to be closer to his sisters and their families for the remainder of his life.
Robert was preceded in death by his mother and father, Beverly (McNerney) and Robert Redman; sister, Leslie (Redman) Calvin; his maternal grandparents, Georgia and Gerald McNerney; paternal grandparents, James Redman, Maxine and Bob Nausland.
Survivors include his sisters, Glora Lee Hayek and husband, Donald, and Tammy Sue Redman; nephews and nieces, Joshua Hayek, John Hayek, Jamie Meierdierks and husband, Mitchell, Joseph Hayek, David Rerucha, Mitzy Rerucha, Promise Johnson, Arron Rerucha and wife, Tiffany, and Ryan Rerucha and wife, Heather, Preston Calvin, Zachary Calvin; cousin, Angie Smith and husband, Bill; and many great nieces and nephews.
