James Victor Redding, 90, Bloomington

On Friday, May 31, 2013, James Victor Redding, 90, Bloomington, died after a long battle with esophageal cancer.

Jim was son of James Thomas Redding and Nora (Parkey) Redding. He was born in Lafayette, Dec. 18, 1922, while his father was attending Purdue University on a WWI disabled veterans benefit. During his childhood, he lived in Bluffton until 1939, when his family moved to Seymour.

Jim graduated from Shields High School in Seymour in 1940. After graduation, he was a concrete technician during the construction of Freeman Airfield at Seymour. He then attended the University of Wisconsin until 1943, when he enlisted in the US Army. During WWII, Jim served as a combat medic with the 71st division. He fought in several major battles in Germany, where he was wounded several times, receiving a total four Bronze Stars and two Purple Hearts. In 2008, he was awarded a fifth Bronze Star for his service as ground infantry in WWII.

During the war, in June of 1944, he married his childhood sweetheart, Jean Cummins Frazier.

After WWII, Jim used his veterans benefits and attended IU, attaining a degree in microbiology. In 1952, he became the supervisor of parenterals at the Central Pharmacal Company in Seymour. In 1960, he moved to Upper Montclair, N.J. to work at Schering-Plough Corporation of Bloomfield, N.J. (now Merck), where he was responsible for developing new products: Tinactin, Rifampcin, Gentamycin sulphate, Afrin, to name a few. In 1986, he became the international affairs manager of Schering-Plough, where he served until his retirement in 1989. In 1990, he and his wife returned to Indiana and Bloomington.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Jean (2004), and his daughter, Ann (2011).

He is survived by a son, James Redding, Jr. (Linda) of Nashville; two granddaughters, Elizabeth Ann Eaton (Brian) of Brownsburg and Lynda Catherine Hubbard (Brian) of Whiteland; and four great-grandchildren.

Visitation took place Friday, June 7 at Allen Funeral Home in Bloomington with military rites conducted by the veterans honor guard. Inurnment was in Bluffton at Elm Grove Cemetery Monday, June 10.

Online condolences can be sent to the family at www.allenfuneralhome.org. In lieu of flowers, contributions in his memory can be made to the American Cancer Society, the Burton Post 18 (Bloomington) of the American Legion, or the Bloomington YMCA.
