April 29, 1953 – December 24, 2019
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Redge James Slaunwhite on December 24, 2019 at the age of 66 years. He was surrounded with love by his son James and good friend Eileen. Redge was eager to help his close friends and family by working on their cars or helping them with handyman things around the house. Redge was a single father and was proud of the young man he raised. He continued his great work ethic as a truck driver in his later years. Those who knew Redge knew he could light up a room with a joke or a laugh. Redge was predeceased by his parents, John and Ida (nee Gagnon) Slaunwhite. He is survived by his son, James Grandbois and granddaughter, Laila Grandbois; brothers; Don (Dianne) Slaunwhite, and Ken Slaunwhite, sisters; Shirley (Joe) Sobochan, Joan (Len) Slaunwhite, and Lorrie Pheasey; close cousin, Ellen Gray; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
The family would like to thank Eileen Hannah for all the kind support she had shown to Redge during his illness.
