William David Redd, Jr., 51, of Charleston, South Carolina, entered into eternal rest Saturday, March 20, 2021. A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date aboard the fishing boat El Tejano on the North Edisto River. Arrangements by J. Henry Stuhr, Inc. Downtown Chapel.

David was born November 9, 1969 in Orangeburg, South Carolina, son of Suzanne Stevens Redd and the late William David Redd. He was the Captain of the Sport Fishing Yacht, El Tejano for the last twenty years.

David was a licensed captain, an accomplished gunsmith, a competitive shooter and an avid outdoorsman. His contagious laugh left a lasting impact on everyone he met. David truly touched everyone with love, kindness, honesty and loyalty. He embodied all that is unique and good about the Lowcountry. His absence will be more than a personal loss. It is a cultural loss. Charleston is today… just a little less Southern.

After the death of his father, David spent the last twenty years nurtured by Marilynn and John Hill. He treasured the relationships he created within the entire Rockville community who quickly became his family. Our family would like to thank this community including Heather, Frank, Chris, Bobby, Steve and so many others for supporting David for all these years.

David was preceded in death by his father, William David Redd, and is survived by his mother, Suzanne Stevens Redd of Charleston, SC; sister, Martha Sue Redd Watkins (Wes) of Charlotte, NC; two nieces: Mason Daughaday (John) and Leize Watkins; and nephew, Carter Watkins, along with many Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.

Memorials may be made to Rockville Presbyterian Church, 2479 Sea Island Yacht Club Rd. Wadmalaw Island, SC 29487.
