Walter Redman Death – Obituary | Dead – Passed Away
Walter Redman Death – Dead: A great loss was made known to InsideEko. As friends and families of the deceased are mourning the passing of their loved and cherished Redman.
Canberra PCYC is deeply saddened by the passing of our great friend Walter “Dick” Redman. Walter was one of the 5 founding members of the Canberra PCYC back in 1957, who had the vision to support young people experiencing hardships across the ACT regional area, and up until his passing, this weekend was the last surviving member. Walter, even in his later years could remember every detail of the struggles they went through to get the PCYC off the ground and spoke to our team with passion in his voice about the great things they had done over the years. Much of the build was done with the support of volunteers and a lot of hard work, getting their hands dirty, always fundraising, and even hosting Major Balls, Dances, and Concerts. One of the bands to play in the hall was called “The Corvettes”, with one of the band members being George Lazenby who went on to star as 007 in the famous James Bond Movies. The funds raised from these events went to support thousands of young people with programs expanding to where they are now over 60yrs later. Walter came and celebrated our 60th Anniversary by cutting the cake and bringing a load of memorabilia to look over. He also felt so very proud of everything that the original group achieved when he got to personally meet our Patron
The Honourable David Hurley and Mrs. Linda Hurley at an event recently.
