EAST LIVERPOOL-Michael C. Renner, of East Liverpool, passed away very unexpectedly on Sunday, June 8, 2014, in the emergency room of East Liverpool City Hospital. He was 59 years old.
Born in East Liverpool, on June 17, 1954, Mike was a son of the late John L. and Joyce E. Martin Renner.
Mike's life revolved around his family. His wife of 22 years and whom he married on Nov. 13, 1992, Carolyn LaNeve Renner, and his children, Jenna and Krista Renner, at home, and his son, Michael Caleb Renner and wife Jamie of Weirton, have been devastated by his sudden loss.
Mike was a hard worker and never turned down shifts at the First Energy Samis Plant in Stratton, where he was a yard operator.
He proudly served his country with the US Air Force, and he loved spending time at the Elks lodge 258 in East Liverpool.
To say that he was huge sports fan would be an understatement. He was glued to the television if any of the Pittsburgh sports teams or any Ohio State Buckeyes teams were on.
In addition to his wife and children, Mike will be sadly missed by his family, including, his sisters, Christy Ward and husband Steve of East Liverpool, and Julie Prande and husband John of Kearney, Neb.; his brothers, Steve and Jeff Renner of East Liverpool and Rick Renner and wife Haiyen of Rockwell, Texas; and his stepmother, Donna Renner of East Liverpool. Krista's boyfriend, Aaron Long, and Mike's dog, Princess Rose, as well as several nieces, nephews, extended family and friends, especially Kim and Fred Langer and Janet and Pete Dudgeon, whom he loved spending time with, are extremely saddened by his loss.
Besides his mom and dad, he was preceded in death by his father and mother-in law, Dr. George L. and Genevieve T. LaNeve.
In fulfilling Mike's wishes, a private graveside service will be held at Riverview Cemetery, at the convenience of the family, and a celebration of his life is being planned for a later date.
