Redmond Keisler, 68 of Sheridan, passed away July 28. His career in television and sound engineering led him to start his own video production company and aided in the spread of the gospel as he traveled to several foreign countries as the videographer for the Baptist Missionary Association.
He also spent more than 40 years playing and singing bluegrass music with his brothers, Randy and Rick as The Keisler Brothers, and in recent years as The Redmond Keisler Band.
He was passionate about raising funds and donating his time, talent and energy to the church and for the Kids in Bluegrass program to which he provided instruments for kids eager to learn and to help promote bluegrass to a younger generation.
He was a member of Immanuel Baptist Church in Sheridan.
Survivors include: his partner, Kelly Rogers of Pocahontas; two sons, Daniel (Jessica) Keisler of Ozark and David (Brittany) Keisler of Sheridan; two brothers, Randy Keisler of Sheridan and Rick Keisler of Nashville, Tenn.; and five grandchildren.
