On March 28, 2020, Larry Renman , loving husband and father of three children passed away at the age of 72 after a 20 year battle with Renal Cell Cancer.

People always say time heals all, and I say that depends on how much said person influenced one's life.
Larry helped raise me the last 38 years of my life and with me turning 48 last November, it was still at least a part time gig. He was the absolute best in every aspect possible. Thanks, Lar....for being the greatest dad and grandpa ever! I miss you so much and so does your granddaughter, Abbi. I'm so lucky you and mom found each other. Mom misses you like crazy, too....but rest easy as she is strong and I will always be there for her.
Love and miss you, Lar
