Obituary for Fred Rennirt, Jr.

Fred Rennirt, Jr. of Ramsey, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his family on March 15, 2022. He is happily reunited with his wife of 70 years, Leota, who went home on November 12, 2019. Fred was born to the late Fred, Sr. and Rachel Stinson Rennirt on February 2, 1928 in Valley Station, Kentucky.

Fred was a life-long farmer; his garden was his pride and joy and family, friends and neighbors enjoyed the fruits of his labors. He retired from Louisville Gas & Electric in 1990 as a foreman of heavy equipment operators.

He was a member of Unity Chapel United Methodist Church, previously of Northwest Christian Church and English Baptist Church, serving as a deacon. He loved working in the church and put in many hours as long as he was able.

Fred served in the U. S. Marine Corps before coming home to marry Leota. They have four children, Debbie Nix (Alvin), Barry Rennirt (deceased), Becky Rennirt and Terri Rennirt, daughter-in-law, Debbie Hodges (Jerry), son-in-law, Jim Elliott; six grandchildren, Scott Rennirt (Lori), Shannon Smith (deceased), Amy Wetzel (Mark), Rachel Wade (Steven), Hannah Elliott and Hayley Elliott; eight great grandchildren, Taran Rennirt (Abby), Ethan and Taylor Rennirt, Skyler, Sawyer and Sadie Wetzel, Kessler Wade and Baron Wade and great great grandchild, Remington Rennirt.

Fred will be remembered for the tremendous work ethic and commitment to responsibility that he lived by and taught his family. He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.

The family wishes to express a sincere gratitude to Julie Scott, who was a loving care giver and friend to Fred. We can’t imagine having made it through these final months without her.
