Lewis V. Redman

December 3, 1946November 19, 2013

Lewis Redman, age 66 of Harrison Township Michigan passed away on November 19, 2013. Loving husband to Kim, father to Cory, stepfather to Dan, Bill, Chaundra (Shawn), Tony (Daryl), Cindy (Tom). Wonderful grandfather to Brendan, Chloe, Nicholas and Evan. Brother-in-law to Krissy and Frank. Preceded in death by his mother, Lenore and father, Aloysius. Lewis served in the United States Navy from 1966 through 1972. After completing his service in the Navy, using his love of Graphic Arts he began his own Sign Company. In 1987 he launched his own Graphic Arts Trade School to teach displaced GM skilled trade workers and help them begin a new career path in Graphic Art. In December of 1990 Lewis and his wife Kim, began their journey as Managers of Eastwood Village Apartments in Clinton Township Michigan. Lewis was know as the "Cruise Director" of fun. He formed the Resident Activity Committee and during his time there he started the horseshoe league, chili cook off, pig roast, car wash fundraisers, Christmas balcony decorating contest, along with countless pool parties. He was also a trustee at the Elks club in Mt. Clemens and oversaw the complete remodeling of the inside of the facility. In 2003 his love of graphic art began calling again. He went on to design and create a line of over 50 custom designed computer graphic drawings of Pin-up girls for Zippo Lighters. He also bought himself a 2006 Black Charger that he loved, which his wife rightfully named the "Bat Mobile." In 2011 he retired from Paragon Property Management Company after 21 years of service. Lewis and Kim purchased their dream condo on the Clinton river which they completely gutted and remodeled into a beautiful home. Lewis being the man we all know and love could not retire quietly. He became the VP of the condo association and began to initiate improvements of the property. After all of the work was completed they joined the Eagles club of Harrison Township right across the river from their condo and they bought a boat to spend their summers cruising up and down the river. At the end of day Lewis was the happiest with family, friends and sitting on his deck with his wife Kim and a cocktail. A private family memorial service will be held.

What can you say when you hear that one of the old crowed has passed? It's a lose that everyone feels and Lou and the rest of us guys from Roseville that used to put many miles on Gratiot Ave back in the 60"s cruising had a lot of fun growing up and that is what I will always remember about Lou and the rest of the gang, THE FUN STUFF being COOL STUFF, pointed shoes, DA hair cuts, tight jeans, fast cars and a lot of pretty girls plus much more. For me it's not good by Lou it's " see ya later Bud". Mark A. Dean

My condolences to the family,Lewis was always a great teacher and friend and will be missed greatly. He always had a smile and a kind word for everybody he talked to and could brighten even the darkest room. Going to miss passing him in the market or Tim Hortons.

Lewis was a bright spot in my day when I saw him at Eastwood Village. He always had a smile and a quip to make me laugh. And his social events added to a sense of community that is not often found at apartment complexes. He is sadly missed by all the tenants around Paragon Properties who knew and loved him.

My sincerest condolences to the family. I am so sadden to here of Lewis' passing. We went to school together and remained friends, whom shared everything and seen each other every day, up to the mid 80's. But sometimes life has a way of getting in the way and people drift apart for no good reason. We forget what is truly important in life, the hearts that one has touched. Lewis, I am so sorry I kept putting off reconnecting with you, I thought we would have more time. My thoughts and prays go with you and your family. Rest in peace my friend.

Lewis has left us much too soon, but he has left us with so many memories. Lewis was so much more to me than someone I worked with and respected. He was so thoughtful and kind. Our family treasures the story-telling Santa he gave us when the girls were very young and will think of him every time we listen to the Christmas story. I will miss talking art with Lewis, he has inspired me to keep on with mine. Our family keeps Kim and the entire family in our prayers and we look forward to seeing Lewis again someday.
