Clifford Abe “Kippy” Redwood, age 61, of New Castle, DE, passed away on Wednesday, April 3, 2019.
Born in Victoria, TX, on June 23, 1957, he was a son of Jessi (Garcia) Reinholz and the late James M. Redwood II. Kippy proudly served in the Army National Guard. He then worked as a machine operator for NVF for over 30 years.
Kippy had a great love for life, family, humor and many boxer dogs over the years. To say he was a lifetime Dallas Cowboys fan is an understatement. He also loved Nascar Racing. Kippy treasured the time spent with family and family gatherings and was proud to be a major part of his grandchildren’s lives. He had more fun and more laughs than most. People always remember how someone made you feel, when you think of Kippy remember how he loved to laugh and make others laugh.
He is survived by his wife of 40 years, Kimberly A. (Rookard) Redwood; mother, Jessi (Garcia) Reinholz; children, Brandy C. Redwood (Thomas White) and Clifford A. Redwood II (Jessica Brown), both of New Castle; siblings, James M.
