Of Chelsea, Michigan, formerly of Dayton, OH, age 75, died suddenly and unexpectedly on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at the U of M Hospital. He was born July 18, 1945 in Long Island, New York, the son of Donald Carl & Geraldine (Semple) Redic.
Dave graduated from Mercer High School in 1963, and then Grove City College, Ohio University, and Wright State University. He had a variety of professions. Dave worked in air pollution control and environmental regulation and enforcement. He was also an entrepreneur who owned his own business. Dave valued hard work of any sort, and he was a respected manager across his many jobs. Dave had strong values which were reflected in his loyalty to his family, and his reliability in his routine and habits. He volunteered after he retired as a way to give back and to honor his values. His volunteering included working at a food pantry, transporting senior citizens, and donating blood. Dave was an avid gardener, and loved to be outdoors, swimming, biking, and running. He enjoyed traveling with friends, playing cards, and weekly pool games at the Senior Center.  Dave was full of life, humor and good cheer.  He loved being a husband, father, and grandfather, where his values live on.
Dave married his high school sweetheart, Diane Miller, to whom he was devoted for 58 years of marriage. He is also survived by two daughters, Kimberly Redic of Dexter, Margaret “Maggie” (James Hicks) Redic of San Francisco, CA; three grandchildren, Emma Kill, Benjamin Kill, and Stella Kill; two sisters, Lacey (Kirk) Young of Toledo, OH, and Lynn Slater of Grove City, PA.
