In Loving Memory of Bernard Joseph Redmond (Brian), a Devoted Servant of God and humanity.
Bernard (Brian) Joseph Redmond of Sherman, CT and Naples, FL, peacefully departed to be with the Lord on February 3, 2024, at the age of 92 surrounded by his children. Brian was born in Manhattan, NY, son of the late Joseph and Mary Redmond (nee Campbell) of Belfast Ireland. He was raised in Gerritsen Beach and graduated from Brooklyn Tech in Brooklyn, NY in 1949. He served in the US Army’s 26TH Signal Battalion providing communications during the Korean War. Upon returning home he met the love of his life and soon after married his lifetime sweetheart and devoted wife, Helen M. Redmond (nee Rudden).
Brian dedicated his life to his wife, their children, to his unwavering faith and reverence for our Lord. As a devout member of his Roman Catholic Parish community, Brian was a supporter of many causes and charities that provided comfort to the sick, feeding the hungry, or offering solace to the troubled, he embodied the essence of selflessness and kindness. Brian was a parishioner of Holy Trinity Church in Sherman, CT and St. Ann Church in Naples, FL
His spiritual journey was a life-long pursuit of piety and holiness, based on devotion, self-sacrifice and giving to others to deepen his connection with the Lord. Brian’s unwavering faith sustained him through life's trials and tribulations, as he remained steadfast in his beliefs until his final moments.
Besides his talent as a handyman who could build and fix anything Brian filled the home with music. He was known for his many musical talents, which started as a self-taught piano player in his youth, which eventually led him to the love of Banjo playing and his participation in the Easton Banjo Society where he was an active member for many years. A highlight of his banjo career was performing at the Statue of Liberty’s restoration and centenary celebration. Picking up the Trombone in his 80’s offered new venues and opportunities to get on stage and play concerts for charities. He was a man of few words, but they were often profound. His warm smile, genuine compassion for others and words of wisdom touched the lives of countless friends and family.
Brian is survived by his three adoring sons; Brian Redmond Jr. of New Fairfield, Joseph Redmond (Sheryl) of Denver, NC, and Kevin Redmond (Maureen) of Ridgefield, CT, two loving daughters; Sheila Kern (Kevin) of Chester, NY, and Kathleen Caldwell (Harold) of Scarborough, ME and his grandchildren Joey, Bridget, Helen, Jane, Kevin, Megan and Kristen, friends, nieces, and nephews.
May his soul rest in eternal peace, and may his memory keep him alive in our hearts as we mourn our loss.
A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at 4 P.M. on Tuesday, February 13, 2024, at St. Edward the Confessor Church, 21 Brush Hill Rd., New Fairfield, CT where we will celebrate his entrance into eternal life.
