Be the first to offer your condolences on William's Tribute Wall
In Edson, Alberta, at the age of 73, William (Bill) Rudolf Redlick lost his battle with brain cancer. Bill was born in Benito, Manitoba, November 25, 1949, to Rudy and Lydia Redlick.
He was predeceased by his father, Rudy, his mother, Lydia, his sister, Irene Yaremus, his brother-in-law, Adam Yaremus, and his brother-in-law, Bartley Beals.
Bill spent his early years in Minitonis, Manitoba. Like many of his generation, he quit school and went to work. Work took him from Vancouver to Churchill, to Montreal + Expo 67., and many places between. Bill worked as farm laborer, for CN, building houses, at stock yards, in construction, in the oil patch and long-haul trucking. While trucking he hauled logs, gravel, ore, cement, heavy equipment, and oil. Bill finished his working career as a grader operator, which he said he liked the best. In 1990, Bill and his family moved to the Peers, Alberta, area, where they made their home. When he wasn’t at work, he could be found outside doing yard work, gardening, and farming. Bill had a lifelong love for horses, particularly draft horses. He had many over the years, but the spotted drafts were his favourites. Bill always enjoyed hitching a team, by himself or with family and friends.
Bill is survived by Maureen, his wife of 50 years, his three sons and their wives, Randy (Tammy), Ryan (Linnea), Regan (Amie), and grandchildren Anna, Lane, Kaili (Jarett), Kelly, Kathlyn, Nick, Emma, Jace and Emerson.
In lieu of flowers, please consider offering a donation to brain cancer research, and spend time with your family and friends doing something you enjoy. When you see a member of Bill’s family, stop, and tell them what you did.
Flowers are nice, but making good memories is better.
