Redmond businessman and civic leader Ric Nowak will be laid to rest Friday. He died on Sunday of cancer.
He’s been a forty year Redmond resident. He owned Country By Design Antiques in downtown Redmond.
Eric Sande with the Redmond Chamber says Ric will be missed. “And he's been involved in city council, the Redmond Historical Society, the Deschutes County Landmark Commission and he was instrumental in discussions with ODOT on the moving of the highway. He was always engaged in making Redmond businesses and successful here.” In 2009, Nowak was Redmond's “Citizen of the Year.” A graveside service will be held Friday at Redmond Memorial Cemetery at 2 p.m.
