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.”
