Owen Redway, a field supervisor at LRS Plumbing, has been recognized for his role supporting the development of urban communities, encouraging civic responsibility and for promoting awareness of the plumbing-trade to young urbanites.

The special commendation was awarded by the city of Inglewood.

Redway’s brother, Leonard Redway, owner of LRS Plumbing, will retire in April, handing down the business to Owen, while Leonard moves forward to head the LR Foundation, a new advocacy program for underserved youth.

Owen Redway says he is ready to take control so his brother can focus on the family’s charitable mission.
