  • What a stellar summary of John’s wonderful life.

  • A ‘gentleman and a scholar’ never fit anyone as well as John. A man of great capacities and a wondrously beautiful life story.
    Travel well, my friend.

    Dear Mary Rachel and Family,

    John’s passing has left a huge void in our hearts and in our lives. Having worked with him closely over the majority of his professional career, we know first hand that he made a difference in the care of his patients, and he created a lasting organization of caring that is truly meaningful to patients, families, employees.
    We will miss his sharp wit, total recall analysis, and his keen political astuteness of observation.
    We know that Colby and Scout will miss him terribly as will we all. He meant the world to us.
    With much love,
    Dick & Carole

  • John was my West Point Classmate who I was very proud of.

  • Thank you Doctor Redmond for all that you did for me from my initial diagnosis in 2001 until your retirement in 2015. You helped me through many difficult times, and I know that a large part of why I am here to write this can be attributed to your care. Rest in Peace.

  • I had the privilege to get to know Dr Redmond during my 14 year career at Abington Hospital ( pre Jefferson) as a Radiation Oncology RN. Dr Redmond endearingly made my head spin as I listened to him speak. I would think…”he is brilliant!” I learned from him academically & socially. He was “THAT GUY” who met you at your level and encouraged you & guided you effortlessly.
    Dr John Redmond, you are in my prayers. May you rest in peace forever. You have been a remarkable figure and will always be remembered.❣️
    Signed with much admiration,
    Eileen Pompe

    Dear Mary Rachel,
    What a beautiful and well stated tribute to our dear Dr. Redmond.
    He was a strong leader, compassionate doctor and greatest boss. We will miss him and his quirky sense of humor dearly. May he rest in peace following a full and well accomplished life. He will be forever in our hearts!

  • I only met John 3 years ago when we moved into the same community in Flourtown, and had only visited with him a few times, but enjoyed that time very much.
    He struck me as very smart, great sense of humor, always a broad smile on his face, and a guy who really enjoyed having conversation.
    I will miss him!

  • Dear Mary Rachel,

    We are so saddened to learn of John’s untimely passing. As we are still in Florida we will be unable to attend the memorial service in person but will be with you in spirit.
    We really enjoyed his warmth, fun loving attitude and caring friendship. He always made kind remarks about my artwork on Facebook which I will miss!
    He is probably up in heaven looking for a great spot to fish!!

    Our deepest condolences on your loss,
    Elaine and Peter McCombs

    Mary Rachel & family:

    My husband and I extend our condolences to you on the loss of an outstanding husband, father, and friend as well as an influential physician and leader. John managed to build an outstanding Oncology Division with a great deal of intelligence, humor, and grace.

    May your memories be of comfort to you,

    Paula & John

  • It was a privilege to work with Dr Redmond in the Cancer Center at Abington. He fostered a very collegial atmosphere among the staff and shared many stories about his life. His knowledge of cancer care was always based on research findings and the latest standards of care., as he always did the best for his patients in the rapidly changing healthcare environment.

  • I was a high school classmate of John’s when we graduated inn 1962. John went on to the USMA, and I went to the Marine Recruit Depot in San Diego. We corresponded when he was a plebe and I was a Private E-1. John was a brilliant and friendly student. I shall miss him for the rest of my days. PRESENT ARMS!
