Don Redwine, 76 of the Spade Community, passed away unexpectedly at home on Sunday, February 28, 2021. He was born on March 5, 1944, in the old Root Memorial Hospital of Colorado City to Heston and Geneva Oliver Redwine. Don was a graduate of Loraine High School, where he was a very active student, playing football, basketball, and track, and was a member of the FFA. When He was 22, Don was drafted into the Marine Corp, where he spent two years during the Vietnam War and earned several service medals. After he served his country, Don spent 31 years as a lease operator for Chevron Oil Company before opening the AutoMart Parts Store in Colorado City in 1991. Don was a man who was all about family; he was a great husband, an even better father and grandfather, and a loving and attentive brother. He taught his family to love their Lord, to work hard, and how to work the land. He had been a member of the First Baptist Church of Colorado City since 1992. In his spare time, he enjoyed being outdoors. He farmed cotton until 1980, broke horses until he got too old, raised cattle, ranched, and enjoyed hunting and fishing. Don is survived by his wife Liz Redwine of Colorado City, who he married in Carlsbad, New Mexico, on June 10, 1988, by two sons Cary Redwine and wife Lindsey of Arlington and Hayden Redwine of Colorado City, by three daughters Cami Rivera and husband Arthur of Colorado City, Baillie Terry and husband Kegan of Kerrville, and Alexis Williams and husband Jay of Colorado City. He is also survived by his grandchildren Dakota Redwine, Ashley Redwine, Kyle Rivera, Kaci Rivera, Aiden Redwine, Emma Terry, and Tanner Redwine, by great-grandchild Raven Redwine, and by a sister Sharon Hammond and her husband Morris of Colorado City. He was preceded in death by his parents and by a brother David Redwine.

So sorry to hear of Don's passing. We, the Skaggs' family have loved the Redwine family for many, many years. Dating back to when Daddy, Rev Ronnie Skaggs, pastored Bethel Baptist Church and Heston and Geneva, David, Sharon, & Don were members. I have so many sweet memories of this family and their extended families now. Praying for God's comfort for Liz, Sharon, Cary, Caci, Baillie, Hayden, Alexis, and all.

Dear Cary & the Redwine family,

My deepest condolences on the loss of such a distinguished man, husband, brother, father, grandfather, and former Marine. I may never have met him however, you can see the spark in his eye, which enriched the lives of your family. My prayers will include him and your family to become at ease with this loss. Know he's in good hands, keeping charge with St. Peter at the gates of heaven. From one Marine to another, Semper Fi Don, Semper Fi.

To all of the Don Redwine family, my heart and prayers are with you at this very difficult time. Don and Liz were so helpful to me when I lived in Colorado City after Dave passed. Don and Art Riverea came out countless times to work on my tractor. I am so thankful for the whole family because they took me under their wings and helped me get back on my feet again. Don was a dedicated, loving brother and so giving. He leaves a legacy of kindness, love of family, helpfulness, dedication and so much more.
While Don is no longer physically with us, his spirit is all around us. Those who love us never go away, they live on through us. May all the sweet memories bring you all peace at this time.
Love and hugs,
Patti Redwine

He was always uncle Don to me even though he wasn't really my uncle. I will miss him and all the conversations we had in his office. He was a great man and I am blessed that he was family.

Bob loved Don like a brother. They were more than co-workers; they were the best of friends. I can only imagine the joyest reunion those two had as Bob welcomed Don to his heavenly home! Love and prayers to all of you.

I had the pleasure of knowing Don as a neighbor at our family farm. He knew how to make everyone feel "at home". I felt safe knowing he was just down the road. Don and Liz always brightened our day just to see them pull in the driveway. He loved his family, loved his friends, all were blessed to know him. The Spade Community will miss him.
Love sent to the family.

Don was a favorite cousin and person To me. Our families had a lot of great gatherings when I grew up and over the years. He was one of my daddy Casey Oliver’s nephews and pals. They helped each other and shared the love or should I say labor of farming and ranching and hunting. When dad passed Don was a big help to me with farm things until we sold. He called me when he learned I was ill with COVID to ask how I was a few months ago. We had a great talk and I do appreciated him checking on me. He was a good man and he will be missed. May God bless Liz and his family and give us all Peace about his passing . Until we meet again.
