Robert T. Redd

July 3, 1928 — October 2, 2015

Robert T. "Bob" Redd of Rice, Virginia, died at his home
on October 2, 2015. Bob was born in 1928 to C. T. and Louise
Owen Redd of Green Bay, Virginia, and was the youngest of their eight
children. He is survived by his wife of 65 years, Frances Shepard
Redd; his daughter, Kathy Redd Brodie of Farmville; his grandson,
Brett Joseph Brodie; and his granddaughter, Devon Scott Brodie, both of
North Carolina. His son, Robert T. Redd, Jr., died in 1992 at the age
of 33.

Bob graduated from Green Bay High School in 1945. He often joked that
he was in the top 10 of his class of 11. He attended Virginia Tech
where he majored in Animal Husbandry and pitched for the travel baseball
team. After graduation in 1949, he married Frances and moved to San
Antonio, TX, where he served in the army for two years. Upon his return
to Virginia, Bob farmed with his father and taught at Worsham High
School. In 1959, he joined the Prince Edward School Foundation and
served as the Headmaster/Administrator of Prince Edward Academy in
Farmville for nearly 40 years. Bob's leadership contributed greatly to
the success and expansion of the school. He was committed to achieving
excellence in education and athletics and to steadfastly supporting his
faculty and staff. He was cherished and admired deeply by his family,
friends, faculty/staff, and thousands of Prince Academy graduates, all
of whom benefited from his thoughtful guidance. He retired in 1996.

Bob loved spending time with his family and friends, singing Christmas
songs around the piano, gardening, playing with his sweet kitties, and
watching Virginia Tech football, especially when Tech beat UVA!

Bob will be sorely missed by all whose lives he touched. In lieu of
flowers, his family asks friends to honor him by making a contribution
to the Robert T. Redd Fund for Professional and Academic Advancement (PO
Drawer 328, Farmville, VA 23901) and/or to the Southside SPCA (PO Box
66, Meherrin, VA 23954).

There will be visitations at Puckett Funeral Home in Farmville from 4 - 7PM on Monday, October 5th and from noon - 2PM on Tuesday, October 6th. The funeral service will be held at Puckett at 2PM on Tuesday, with the graveside service to follow.
