    I knew Professor Humphrey from UIU from 2014-2018 and in the handful of classes I had, it was always a joy to go to class with him. He was always focused on bettering his students and overall a great man. He will be truly missed. Thoughts and prayers are with your family right now.

    To the family,

    Redmond was a professor and mentor to me at Upper Iowa. He was a strong leader and taught me more than I can express. His dedication to diversity and inclusion and his special way of fully listening to understand continue to guide me today. My deepest sympathies.

    Carrie Taylor, UIU ’16

  • Dawn Novak Posted January 28, 2022 11:39 am

    My condolences go out to Redmond’s family. He was just a warm, caring individual who was passionate about our students at UIU. He will be greatly missed.

  • Narcissus Shambare Posted January 28, 2022 3:22 pm

    My deepest condolences to the family during this very difficult time. What a privilege and honor to have known this great man whose presence exuded peace and wisdom. He was thoughtful and insightful such that every conversation was an opportunity to learn something new from him. He was thankful for the life he has had but with a deep desire to help others including those in under-developed countries. His family was broader than one can imagine. His closing in most of his communications ended with “Aloha, my friend”. It is fitting that I close with Aloha, my friend!

  • Alice HUNG Posted January 29, 2022 12:32 am

    To family of Redmond. What a wonderful man!! I remember when I first began working with Redmond during the External Degree Program days. What a sense of humor and a passion for helping students in obtaining their goals. Redmond always had a good joke to tell and lit up the room when he entered. I will always cherish our visits with joy and laughter. Redmond was also a mentor of mine with our talks I always felt like I got back on the right track. Redmond will surely be missed by many lives that he touched so graciously and passionately. God Bless Redmond’s family

  • Aaron Haines Posted February 1, 2022 5:26 pm

    Redmond was one in a billion. He was smart, funny, kind, and most respectful to his profession and to SO many people. I am sad he is gone. However, when I look back on my memories, I am so happy that he is a part of them.

    We were so saddened to learn of Redmond’s death. It was really my honor to know both you and Redmond through our years at Upper Iowa University. He was a remarkable man. He seemed to me to be full of knowledge, compassion and wisdom. Bob and I would occasionally run into him at the First Garden in Oelwein. It was always a pleasure to sit and visit and share a meal with him. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family, Pam.
