Hank Redecker, Jr., passed away Thursday, September 11, 2014 at Transitions LifeCare, Raleigh, NC. He leaves behind his loving wife of 21 wonderful years, Moneta ”Mo” Redecker and his two beautiful daughters, Bailey and Emily Redecker, who loved him more than anything. He will forever be in their hearts.
Hank was born 14 October 1961 to Henry Walter Redecker (deceased) and Christine Blalock Redecker of Raleigh. He is survived by two sisters, Joan Sims, Jane Speer and her husband, Jim; along with his nieces and nephews.
Hank graduated from Ravenscroft of Raleigh in 1980. As an ECU alum he lived the “Pirate’s Life” as a member of the Pirate Club; with his love of family, friends, football, tailgating and all that is ECU! While a student at ECU, he earned a BA in Sociology, July 25, 1985, a BS in Business Administration with a concentration of Finance May 10, 1986, and a MBA, May 10, 1997. A member of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity resulted in a group of close lifelong friends. Over the years, with Hank’s “bigger than life” personality, he added many others to his circle in addition to his fraternity brothers. He often mentioned how fortunate he was to have such great friends.
The Redecker family would like to thank the Doctors and Staff at Duke/Raleigh Hospital and especially Hank’s Hospice Nurse, Glenda. Glenda is a wonderful, kind, special person, who was a perfect match for his personality.
All of those who love Hank and his family are invited to dress in purple and gold for an “ECU tailgate” celebration of his life at the Boondocks, 201 East Main Street, Youngsville, NC, on Sunday, September 14, 2014 from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Come prepared to share your memories, stories, and love of Hank.
