My deepest sympathy to the family. Denny and Elaine lived across the street from us on Whittington in Parma for several years. We had many good times together.

So sorry for your family's loss. Coach Renk was an inspiration and mentor for countless young men in the Cleveland Schools. His no-nonsense and quick wit approach to coaching as well as teaching created a mutually respectful relationship with his students and athletes. Coach will forever be remembered and respected. Love and condolences, James F. Rhodes c/o 1989.

Very sorry for the passing of Dennis. I did not have the pleasure of meeting him, but I do have the pleasure of knowing his brother Ron. May he rest in peace.

I first met Denny and his family in 2016. I was immediately impressed with the obvious love and affection of the entire family. When Denny met Joy it was like a light had been shared with everyone. The parts of their lives shared with their St. Brendan’s family was a breath of fresh air. Joy was the ‘’Joy’’ of his life and everyone was so happy for them. Denny was so gracious, obviously a wonderful and faith filled partner, a strong and spiritual father and a true friend to all. He will be missed, and remembered by everyone fortunate to know him.

So sorry for your loss. Mr Renk was a wonderful art teacher.

I always looked forward to his class. Hard to believe it was about 40 years ago in Wilbur Wright.

He was a very kind and inspiring man.

Mr. & Mrs. Renk purchased their home in Ormond Beach with me. One of the nicest couples I met. Always upbeat and fun to be with. I shall miss them. My thoughts and prayers go out to the family during this difficult time.

I met Denny on June 23, 2018 and my life has not been the same.I always felt that God brought us together, and the time we had together is the most precious of my life. I cannot think about life without my precious Denny. Even though we were married late in life, it was as though we’ve always been together in spirit. I love you my precious Denny..Save me a place in heaven. Love, Joy
