Carpenter for hospital

Larry Redd Sr., a carpenter and construction worker, died Thursday at Good Samaritan Hospital of a heart attack. He was 38.


He worked most recently as a carpenter at Union Memorial Hospital after working for 11 years for P. Flanigan & Sons Inc., a local contractor.

The Baltimore native graduated from Southwestern High School and attended the Baltimore City Community College.

He was a member for many years of New Psalmist Baptist Church, 100 W. Franklin St., Baltimore, where services were set for 1 p.m. today.

Survivors include his wife of 11 years, the former Tammy Young; four sons, Larry Redd Jr., Terry Redd, Travon Redd and Tyren Redd; his father, Luther Redd Sr.; his mother, Essie Mae Redd; his grandfather, Leon Sauls; six brothers, Jerry Redd, Luther Redd Jr., Malcolm Redd, Isaac Redd, Isiah Redd and Tony Hamilton; two sisters, Neta Britt and Tearesa Redd; a stepbrother, Arthur Suttler; and two stepsisters, Kim Redd and Shawn Holmes. All are of Baltimore. Bessie Mae Watson, a retired seamstress, died of a heart attack last Tuesday at the Johns Hopkins Hospital. The longtime Edmondson Village resident was 74.

The former Bessie May Datson was a native of Lynchburg, Va., who moved to Baltimore in the early 1940s and began working as a seamstress.

She was widowed three times before marrying the Rev. Abram Watson in 1992. She died on their second wedding anniversary.

Known as "Honey," she was a member of the Berea Temple of Seventh-day Adventists and had served in a number of positions in the church, including deaconess and teacher and superintendent of the religious school.

Services were set for 11 a.m. today at New Zion Hill Baptist Church, 2432 E. North Ave., Baltimore, with interment at Baltimore Cemetery.

Survivors include her husband; two daughters, Verniece Crowder and Amber Timpson, both of Reis terstown; two brothers, Ernest Nunnally of East Baltimore and Warren Nunnally of Randallstown; a sister, Marion Mitchell of Edmondson Village; three grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; and five step-children.
