Father of singer Otis Redding, Jr., married to Fannie Roseman Redding around 1937. In 1946, the family moved to the Tindal Heights Housing Project in Macon, Georgia. Otis Sr. worked at Robins Air Force Base, one of the local places of employment for blacks, and preached on the weekends. His son Otis, Jr. began singing in choir of the Vineville Baptist Church. For much of Otis' childhood his father was sick. Living for awhile in a shotgun house in west Macon known as Bellevue, the family was forced to move back into the project after it burnt down.
