Reginald Lee “Rennie” Stockton, a resident of Birmingham, Alabama was born on July 2, 1956 and he passed away peacefully on September 11, 2018 at the age of 62. Rennie was a very dedicated and loving father. We loved him dearly and he now resides with our great Heavenly Father who called him home Tuesday. He was a strong family man his entire life and loved his “granddog," dearly. Buster is a Cavalier King Charles Spaniel who he called “the dog of his old age”. In Rennie's last couple of years, he spent his spare time playing his new found hobby, pickle ball, and made many fond memories and friends on the courts. He will be dearly missed by all!

Although I only knew Rennie for a short period of time, his loss is felt deep in my heart. I only started working in his industry last year and although I’m trying really hard to be good at it, there is still a lot I need to learn. Thinking back, he was the first contractor/business owner that I helped on my own. I know that he must’ve been frustrated sometimes with my inexperience, but if he was, I never knew. In a job where people are frequently short tempered, condescending & manipulative, Rennie was always patient, understanding, and kind.... I will always remember that, his kindness. That is something I will take with me forever and strive for in my own life. Yes, I only knew him for a short time, but he has helped to teach me what kind of person I want to be. If he left such a strong impact on someone he only knew in passing, then I can only imagine the heartbreak and sense of loss those closest to him are feeling right now. My heart is with you
