Michael Douglas Redmond
June 10, 1980 - December 18, 2022
Michael Douglas Redmond, age 42 and a resident of Mount Hermon, passed away Sunday night December 18, 2022 after a lengthy and courageous battle with cancer. Despite the troubles he faced, he never gave up and lived his life to the fullest. Michael attended the Mt. Hermon schools and earned the nickname “Tubby”, which he carried the rest of his life. He worked in the oilfield industry for several years, most recently as a tool-pusher for Stinger Oilfield Service. Tubby loved fishing, fast cars and watching the Street Outlaws TV show. He enjoyed monster truck shows and loved his pets. Tubby was a family first person and honest to the core. He will be sadly missed by his family and friends.
