Obituary

Thomas Lee Renner, age 75, of Danville, Kentucky, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, January 25, 2020, following a brief illness. He was born on June 9, 1944, in Ottawa, Kentucky to James Oather and Marie (Williams) Renner. He attended a two-room schoolhouse, Rowland Elementary School, near Stanford and was a 1962 graduate of Crab Orchard High School. He was of the Baptist faith, having accepted Christ as his Lord and Saviour.
Upon high school graduation, Thomas enlisted in the United States Navy, where he became a parachute rigger. In 1970, Thomas began his Army career, joining the United States Army Reserve; he retired as a Chief Warrant Officer in 1986, after proudly serving his country for over 24 years.
He was a lifetime member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 3634 and the American Legion Post 0046 in Danville. In addition, he was a longtime member of the Robert M. Sirkle Lodge No. 954 F&AM, Lexington, Kentucky.
Thomas attended Urbana College, Urbana, Ohio, graduating with a Business degree. He opened TREN Motors in Stanford beginning in 1984. He was a dedicated car enthusiast and thoroughly enjoyed competing in many local billiard tournaments. He was an avid college football and basketball fan, rooting on the True Blue! An event Thomas refused to miss was the annual Crab Orchard High School Class of ’62 Reunion, where he loved laughing and reminiscing with lifelong friends and classmates. Living on the lake gave him ample opportunity to enjoy his love of fishing, often with neighbors! He was a dedicated husband, father, brother, and friend who will be sadly missed by all who knew him.
Thomas is survived by his loving wife, Wanda; a son, Brian Edward Renner, a daughter, Lisette Michelle Wash; three sisters, Dr. Barbara Kitchen (Phil, deceased), Linda (Jimmy) Cloyd, and Brenda Sue Antle; a brother-in-law, Bernie (Susan) Abrams, a sister-in-law, Sandy (Bill, deceased) Freeman; five grandchildren, Torey Renner, Dakota Wash, Tommy Renner, Kash White, and Kinslee White, and one great grandchild, Clayton Renner; and many nieces and nephews.
Thomas was preceded in death by his parents, four infant siblings, James E., Bobbie, Johnie R., and Wayne Renner; and a son, Dwane White.
The family will welcome friends for visitation on Thursday, January 30, 2020 from 4-8 p.m. at Grace Fellowship Church, 2294 US Hwy. 27 South, Stanford, Kentucky. A Masonic service will be held on Thursday at 7 p.m. at the church.
A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Friday, January 31, 2020 at the church with Bro. Joey Kays officiating. Burial will follow at Madison Memorial Gardens, Richmond, Kentucky.
Pallbearers are Brian Renner, Mark Kitchen, Tommy Sumner, Steve Ison, Jamie Phillips, and Jackie Antle. Honorary pallbearers are Bill Dyehouse, Leamond Padgett, Ed Pollard, Gary Napier, Danny Harmon, John Smith, Ray Middleton, Joe Hampton, and Dr. Mohammad Shahzad.
