Robert Redman
1983-84 WSBA President

Robert R. Redman

#3644, 9/6/2021

Robert R. Redman was born in Yakima on Oct. 1, 1928. He attended Yakima High School and spent time during his early years working in his family’s fruit orchards. Redman graduated from the University of Washington with a degree in business administration in 1951. He then joined the U.S. Navy. In 1952, he met his future wife, Harriet Johnson. The two married on Oct. 10, 1953. Redman moved to Navy reserve status in 1954 and relocated to Seattle, where he attended the University of Washington School of Law. He graduated in 1956, passed the bar exam, and moved to Yakima to join the law firm of Gavin, Robinson and Kendrick. Redman became a partner in 1961.

Redman was a passionate volunteer in his community—an active member of both the Yakima Rotary Club and United Way of Yakima County. He also served the legal profession in numerous ways, including serving on the WSBA Board of Governors from 1974-77 and serving as WSBA president from 1983-84 and Yakima County Bar Association president from 1989-1990.

Redman was known for being outgoing, engaging, and devoted to his family. He was also an avid reader, especially on topics like the Civil War and naval history. During his semi-retirement from 1993-2009, Redman and his wife Harriet traveled throughout the United States, Europe, and Africa, and attended concerts, operas, and Shakespeare plays.

Redman was preceded in death by one week by his wife of 67 years, Harriet. Together they had two sons, Robert and Bruce. Bruce is also a lawyer and works in the WSBA’s Office of Disciplinary Counsel.

Bruce says of his father: “He was a wonderful father, mentor, and friend. He was proud to be a member of the legal community in Washington.”
