LEWISTON – William E. Redmun Sr., 82, of Danville, died peacefully Saturday, July 14, at Central Maine Medical Center with his loving family by his side.

He was the youngest of nine children, born in Auburn on May 19, 1925, to the late Ernest and Myra (Cates) Redmun. He was raised on a dairy farm in Danville, where he spent many years working on the family farm. He attended Edward Little High School, and went on to serve his country proudly in the U.S. Army. On Nov. 16, 1951, he married the love of his life, Marilyn McAlister, and together they raised four children in the home he built in Danville.

He worked for Eastern Refractories as a truck driver for 40 years and retired in 1987. He was a volunteer firefighter for the Danville Fire Department from 1962 to 1984. He was a Little League coach for Auburn Suburban Little League for 10 years, coaching Cummings Cleaners.
