Obituary: William (Bill) P. Renkens (Nov. 29, 1946 – Jan. 13, 2014)

William (Bill) P. Renkens was born in Los Angeles to Harold F. Renkens and Marie F. Renkens-Raichart. After schooling, Bill was drafted into the Army. He went to Ft. Gordon, Ga., for Signal School training, then to Vietnam. After returning home, Bill worked in the carpet business for many years until he blew out his knees. He then had to retire on disability. Bill moved to Crescent City in 2005 to be with his mother and brothers. 

Bill was preceded in death by his father, mother and brother Gary Renkens. He is survived by his brother Mike (and nephew Gary), brother Dennis and sister Pam Renkens of Los Angeles. Bill was a very nice, gentle man. He will be missed.

Bill will be interred at Del Norte County Veteran’s Cemetery January 31, 2014, at 10 a.m. All Vietnam Veterans, and all other veterans, are invited to say goodbye to a brother.
