Stephen John Renn
September 18, 1943 - December 22, 2008
Renn, Stephen J.  age 65, of Milford, died December 22, 2008 after a valiant battle with idiopathic interstitial pulmonary fibrosis. 

Steve was transported to University of Michigan Hospital in Ann Arbor, Sunday morning, December 14 when a particularly aggressive form of pneumonia attacked what was left of his lungs.  Steve never lost his will to live or his sense of humor.  However, with his best friend and business partner holding one hand and his fiance, Kelly holding the other – Steve’s heart gave out when it could take no more.  He passed quietly.

Steve was a quiet, good-natured, caring individual whose sunny disposition had a way of brightening the lives of all those he met.  As a member or our community, he never shied away from lending a hand when needed.  He will truly be missed by all who were lucky enough to call him “friend.”

Friends and loved ones who wish to make a memorial contribution may do so to the Stephen J. Renn Memorial Tree Fund.  248-529-6771 for more information on the Tree Fund.  In honor of Steve’s love of nature, and particularly trees, the fund will plant trees in his memory.  A Memorial dinner, where the life of this special man will be celebrated, will be held in the Spring of 2009.

He is survived by his mother, Barbara Rohn; son, Tim Renn; grandson, Cooper Renn; siblings, Doug, Rick, Diane Theodore; fiancé, Kelly Mellish and many loving extended family members and dear friends.   For further information please call Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors, Milford, at 248-684-6645.

When Liam & I moved to the Chicago area from Milford two yeas ago, I knew that I would miss Steve. We kayaked down the river behind our homes. We laughed at our adventures or his falling overboard! Steve showed me his plans and photos of the progress of his dream home in Sadona. His Halloween parties brought much laughter. He often teased me about my some of my outfits that only he could see from his back patio. His sense of humor was contagious. Kelly invited me to join them for dinner at her house when I visited last May. I was so grateful as I knew then that it may be my last time to see Steve, and it was. He was a good man and a good neighbor but I also considered him a 'good friend'. Liam/Bill & I also send our condolence to Kelly- his family- our Mill Pointe neighbors and his many friends. Warm thoughts, Pat
