Charles "Chuck" William Renzenbrink
March 17, 1937 – July 18, 2020
Charles (Chuck) William Renzenbrink, 83, of North Canton, Ohio, after an extended illness, passed away peacefully and surrounded by his children, July 18, 2020.
Charles is preceded in death by his mother, Ann Renzenbrink (Martin) and his father, Charles Raymond Renzenbrink.
He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Sandra (Sandy McCoy) Renzenbrink, sister, Donna (Roger) Derr, sister, Gayle Cowan, his daughters Cynthia (Bob) Dengler, Michelle (Bob) Bess, and Scott (Kathy) Renzenbrink. He has also been blessed with 5 grandchildren and 7 great grandchildren, with another on the way.
Chuck was a long time, 4th generation employee of Diebold, where he helped in building some of the world’s most enduring and sometimes filmed, bank vaults. He was proud to have helped build the Hope Diamond Vault, located in the Smithsonian Museum. Whenever someone needed a part for something previously thought to be unusable, he could fabricate a new part, and fix the problem.
For those who have been fortunate enough to know and love Chuck, you know what an avid car collector, car restorer, and just anything to do with cars, fan he was. He was a true artist who could create something beautiful and amazing, from literally odds and ends.
There was nothing more important to Chuck than his family and his fur babies, Lollie and Daisy.
The family would like to thank health care workers, friends and neighbors, who helped Chuck during his illness. He will be missed beyond words.
Cremation has taken place and while there will be no calling hours, a Life Celebration will be held at a later date, due to the Covid pandemic, when all will be notified. Donations may be made to Pancreatic Cancer Research or the Canton Humane Society.

God Speed sweet man, and may your passing be full of light, warmth and love.

We had the honor of being Chucks neighbors for the last year and a half. Chuck not only tolerated, but even welcomed, when our kids would let themselves onto his porch for a lengthy visit. Before starting at their new schools he helped ease their nerves by telling them his own kids called them Torture Hill and Clearsnot Smellementory. When they had school fundraisers he was the first to support them. Chuck was so kind and considerate, constantly apologizing for Daisy and Lollipop “disturbing” us even though my kids were running at yelling at the same time. (For the record, we LOVE those pups). He also had ANY tool we possibly needed and offered advice on how to get the task done. I thoroughly enjoyed our porch swing talks, and wish I had asked more. Chuck is deeply missed around here. Ezra and Norah take turns sharing Chucks teddy bear and Gideon still points to his house to say “my friend Chuck lives over there.” Our deepest sympathies to his kids and Sandy for their loss of this incredible man.

Words can't express the sadness we feel over the loss of such a great friend and great neighbor. Before we moved to Florida we would see Chuck several times a day either going by in his orange hot rod or taking his daily walks. We admired his lust for life and his extreme kindness. We are thankful Soc was able to have a short visit with his friend before our Lord took him home. Our Sincere Sympathy to the family.

To know dad, was to know brilliance, though he would never think of himself that way.
He was an artist, a friend, creator, father, grandfather, husband, son and my idol.
He is part of me and I will miss him every day.
I love you Pop.
