terry reddCarefree resident Terry L. Redd, 55, passed away Thursday, Feb. 24, 2011, at the Tucson Medical Center’s hospice facility, Peppi’s House, following a short illness. He had been a commuting resident of Tucson for the past two years to be closer to his employment. Interment was at the Cave Creek Cemetery in Carefree.

Redd was born on April 24, 1955, in Dayton, Ohio, to Dorothy and Daniel Redd. The family was originally from Memphis, Tenn., but moved to the Southwest in 1968, and settled in Phoenix. He attended Moon Valley High School and the University of Arizona in Tucson, where he was a member of the professional engineering fraternity, Theta Tau, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Chemical Engineering in 1979. He graduated with an MBA from the University of Phoenix in 1983.

Redd worked for Arizona’s mining industry beginning with the Phelps Dodge facility in Ajo, Ariz. He later moved into the semiconductor industry working with the U.S. Department of Defense missile production at Hughes Aircraft in Tucson; for the Minerec Corporation, a mining industry chemical supplier; and was the Western Sales Manager for Rohm and Haas from 1998 until 2008. In the last two years, Mr. Redd traveled extensively for the Australian-based Ground Probe North America, LLC, representing the company’s ground-reading radar equipment to active mines across the Canadian arctic provinces.

Redd was preceded in death by his mother, Dorothy Redd, his father, Daniel Redd, and his eldest brother, Daniel Redd Jr., who died in 2008. He is survived by his older brother, Paul Redd; a sister-in-law, Judy Redd; nephew, Brian Redd; niece, Kimberly Roberts; and his younger sister, Linda Lopez; and nieces, Kaitlyn Lopez and Lauren Lopez.

Condolences may be sent to Paul Redd at 21597 N. 59th Dr., Glendale, AZ 85308. Donations may be sent to the Phoenix-based HALO Animal Rescue, an organization that Redd supported and where he also secured animal adoptions.
