For many years I had the pleasure of teaching in the classroom next to his. Your family can certainly be proud of the great teacher and role model he provided his students. Sincere condolences.

Sorry to hear about Coach Reddock's passing. He was a good example for us young guys as our baseball coach. You knew he was a marine, as at times his comments very instructive for the situation the team got into. I relish my last conversation with him in 2013 at the class of 1963 50th reunion. He will be missed, Appropriate scripture follows:
3 Blessed [be] God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; 4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. 5 For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ. [2Co 1:3-5 KJV] Sincerely, Whiting S. Delk

My sincerest condolences to all of the family. Coach Reddock was my Americanism Vs. Communism teacher 53 years ago, and I'll always remember him and Mrs. Reddock attending our 40th class reunion.
My prayers are with you during this very difficult time.

I was in Mr. Reddock's class at Tarpon High over 35 years ago. He was no-nonsense and fair; a very good teacher. I have never forgotten him. My sincere condolences.
