Reindeer went to the loving arms of his Savior on Sept. 7, 2013. He was born on Jan. 1, 1932, in Lucy, N.M., to Lawrence and Georgiana Renner. He was one of five children.
Reindeer served our country as a young man. He Joined the U.S. Marine Corps as a 16-year-old to follow in the footsteps of his siblings, who also served. He was a Korean War veteran who helped take Inchon Harbor and helped secure Kenpo Airfield. He was recently awarded the Ambassador for Peace Medal by the South Korean Government for his contributions to the peace of South Korea. He was also a recovered alcoholic, who had recently celebrated his 41st year of recovery. Reindeer spent much time at Alcoholics Anonymous counseling others in their recovery process. He had a heart to serve, and later in life adopted his three granddaughters, Corrine, Christine and Naomi.
Reindeer leaves behind his two children, Beverley Wilkie (Scot) and Doyle Renner (Sarah); many grandchildren and great-grandchildren; and many stepchildren. His love and leadership of our family will be missed. Semper Fi, Marine.
