Francis Jerome Redmond was born in Stark County to Eugene and Rose (Volesky) Redmond on April 14, 1927. He was raised on his family’s farm with five brothers and two sisters. As the eldest son, some of the responsibility fell on his shoulders. At the age of seven, Jerry worked behind a team of horses until he left for the service at the age of 17. Jerry joined the US Navy during WW II and served for four years. His Navy benefits allowed him to take private flying lessons. Jerry continued to fly for the Civil Air Patrol and personal enjoyment throughout most of his life. After the Navy, Jerry returned to Belfield and drove truck for his Uncle’s business.  

On May 14, 1957 he married Rose Hendricks at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Dickinson. They were blessed with five children; Glenn, Rebecca, Ruth, Gail and Gene.  In 1964 Jerry and Rose had the opportunity to purchase the King Farm/Ranch in Billings County. Together Jerry and his family made the farm their home, where they devoted countless hours tending to their crops and livestock. Jerry was able to live on the farm until his failing health in February of 2024.

Jerry was very committed to his family and the well-being of the communities he served. Jerry followed his father’s footsteps and sheared sheep to supplement the farming income.   He also baled hay, operated, maintained and faithfully drove school and activities bus for 48 years. Jerry was involved in his community serving as a Billings County Commissioner for 20+ years, the Billings County Weed Board, and Belfield American Legion Post #144 for over 74 years, many of those serving on the Honor Guard. Jerry was a very faithful man, he held an adoration hour at St. Bernard’s Church continuously for over 50 years. Being absent from the area for only 4 years while he was in the Navy, he was a living History book of all things related to Belfield and Billings County.

Jerry and Rose enjoyed traveling especially with family. They were able to see most of the United States as well many overseas countries.
