Santa Clarita Remembers Ed Redd


One of Santa Clarita’s greatest advocates was memorialized at Eternal Valley on Sunday, March 28, nearly two weeks after his death. Redd had been a Parks Commissioner for the city of Santa Clarita, a champion for our local youth and proud parent.

What follows is a copy of material presented at his memorial service.

Edward Willis Redd passed away suddenly in his home on March 16, 2010. Edward had recently been diagnosed with Lymphoma. Sadly he passed away as preparations for his treatment were about to begin.

Edward was born March 28, 1946 in Memphis , Tennessee . After serving with the Army, he relocated to California . A retired 31-year employee of The Department of Water & Power, Edward was also a member of the Park and Recreations Commission and an ACTION teen and parent counselor.

Edward’s compassion and positive attitude affected many people in both the Santa Clarita and Antelope Valleys. His determination would never let anything stand in his way of bettering a situation. Even after suffering from other health problems, he continued to go to the gym to wear down the ill effects. He would never let his problems, whether physical or mental, interfere with his being a friend or mentor. A loving father, son and friend, he will be terribly missed.

Edward is survived by his mother and father, Virgie and Darnell Farr, wife, Diane, children, Kristen, Kevin, Evan and Reann and his brother, Sam, along with many grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

In Ed Redd’s memory, donations may be made to The Boys and Girls Club, Single Mothers’ Outreach or The Youth Grove.
