Family of man who died following arson attack ‘struggling to come to terms with it all’

The family of 76-year-old George Redmond, who died on 16 September following an arson attack at a property in Old Swan on Thursday 1 September, have paid the following tribute:

“With extreme sadness, we announce the death of a lovely husband, dad and granddad, George Redmond, who died suddenly on 16 September 2022 in hospital. 

“He was making great progress in his rehabilitation and was already mobile and regaining his independence, so his sudden death was unexpected and utterly tragic and we as a family are absolutely struggling to come to terms with it all. We are beyond heartbroken and hope whoever is responsible for this appalling act is swiftly brought to justice. 

“George leaves behind his much-loved wife Mary to whom he was married for 52 amazing years and three much-loved daughters, Kathryn, Karyn and Angela, as well as six grandchildren – and not forgetting Belle, his beloved cockapoo.

“We will love and miss him forever and hope there is a steady supply of custard creams wherever he is now. Rest peacefully George Redmond. 1946 – 2022.”
