Dr. Paul Clark Redman, Sr, passed away in the early hours of August 18.
Born August 27, 1944,
to Pauline and Curtis Redman in Houston, Texas, he was raised in Kemah on the bay, and the love of water not only stayed in his blood but was passed on to his family. He graduated from Clear Creek High School in 1962, a serious scholar and an accomplished pianist. He went on to receive his undergraduate degree from Austin College in 1966, and married the love of his life, Molly Ann Brady, that same year. He then entered medical school at the University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston. He received his doctorate of medicine in 1970, followed by an internship at Breckinridge Hospital in Austin, Texas. He then completed a year of residency in Internal Medicine with the US Army at Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, after which he was stationed at Fort Hood during the Vietnam War, where he achieved the rank of Major. Following this, he moved to Conroe where he practiced at the Sadler Clinic. In 1979 he was recruited to practice in Liberty, Texas, where he worked with Dr. Brown and Dr. Bunse for four years before opening his private practice Redman Family Practice Clinic in Dayton in 1983. He retired in 2012 only after suffering from ill-health. His intent was definitely to practice to the grave if he had his way, as medicine was both his profession and his passion. He found much joy and fulfillment in caring for our community, from cradle to the grave.
His other great love was his family. He is father to four and father-in-law to their spouses, Paul Clark Redman II, MD, and wife, Amanda, David Curtis Redman and wife ,Melissa, John Loren Redman, MD, and wife, Janna, and Mary Elizabeth Redman Poston, PA, and husband, Matthew. When he was not in clinic, delivering babies, or making hospital rounds, he was only to be found with them - hunting, skiing, traveling, or grilling poolside. His grandchildren quickly became his next devotion. He was second-to-none in consoling the babies with his “Daddy Bounce”, and had a special way of making each one feel seen and loved: Paul Clark Redman III, Michael Aubrey Redman, Andrew Patrick Redman, Nikolas Anatoly Redman, Katelyn Elizabeth Redman, Hailey Lauren Redman, Joshua Loren Redman, Vivian Ruth Poston, Jeremiah Oliver Redman, Joanna Ruth Redman, and Caroline Abigail Redman.
Above even his great love for family and medicine, though, was his love for his Savior. He showed us all what it looked like to live a life devoted to and carried by the Lord. Through the highs and lows of life, Jesus was his greatest reward and surest strength. This will always be his greatest legacy to the beloved family he leaves behind.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Curtis and Pauline Redman, and siblings, Emmett Curtis Redman and Janet Idell Hayne, as well as his granddaughter Mary Ruth Redman. He is survived by his loving wife, children, and grandchildren.
Services will be held Saturday, Sept 2, at Old River Baptist Church. Viewing will be the night before from 6-8 pm at Pace-Stancil Funeral Home in Dayton.
