The Reddout family wishes to remember the life of one of
its loving members, Donald Dean Reddout. He will be missed by his wife, Helen,
who met and fell in love with him 50 years ago. His children will miss his
laughter, warmth and support. His grandchildren will miss his ghost stories,
wild climbing adventures and massive hugs.
Don was born in Missouri in 1938. He, his parents and
sister moved to Washington when Don was still in grade school. His first career
centered around growing cherries. He started out as a field hand and built a
reputation as one of the highest quality cherry growers in the Yakima Valley.
In addition to farming, Don pursued a second career in the wholesale food
industry. Again Don worked his way up from a warehouse worker to foreman to
Don’s wife, Helen; his children, Terri Reddout Sanders,
Lisa Reddout, Linda Reddout Patino, Don Reddout and David Reddout; and his
grandchildren, Katie, Donald, Meggan, Melissa, Lindsey, Casey, Daniel, Becky,
