Funeral & Medical Expenses - Renner

$20,690 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 321 people in 2 months
Created June 28, 2018
Coyote (Cody) Rooster Renner was many things: a loving father, a faithful veteran, a hard-working cowboy, a fun-loving goofball, a cherished son, a grateful husband, a caring brother, a devout Christ-follower. 

We lost Cody, 29 years old, in a tragic event Wednesday, June 27, 2018. 

He is survived by his wife, Audrey Renner, daughters Malorie Danielle (6), Sarah Abby-Roo (22 months), and an unborn daughter, due August 28th, of Cleburne, TX, his mother and father, Dianne Steakley- Renner and Mark Renner of Robinson, TX, brother Michie and wife Christy Smith of Saginaw, TX, sisters Candie Renner Bainton and Scott Bainton of Robinson, TX, and Yasha Jenkins-Pierce and Paul Pierce of Wiley, TX. Cody's brother, Kris Renner, died August 3, 2002. 

Cody was a man of few words, but when he did speak, he lit up a room with laughter and joy. Every person who called him friend has a humorous, memorable story to cherish about his young, but significant life. His daughters will remember him fondly as a gracious, empathetic, loving father who made time to get on his knees and play. His wife will cherish his memory as an eternal partner whose love death will not deter. 

His world consisted of working with animals, following Jesus Christ, and loving his amazing family. His family is grieving, questioning, and working to make sense of a tragedy that has shattered their world.

We're asking for support with funeral expenses, upcoming medical expenses for Audrey and her baby, continued support for Cody's daughters, and prayers for our entire family. Any donation of any amount is blessed and treasured. Thank you for your support. 

Cody was without life insurance and Audrey is a second grade school teacher at Irving Elementary School in Cleburne, TX. Anything you can give is valued immeasurably. 

Any donations not used towards the funeral will be saved for the birth of his last child in August and used as savings for his three precious daughters.

Wow. We're shocked. We're thankful. We're hurting. We've reached over $5,000 in 10 hours.

Thank you, all. Thank you. Words aren't enough. Nothing is enough right now, but this means so much to Audrey and her family.

We really wish this fundraiser was for something like a family trip to Cabo or Malorie's first car. Maybe a savings fund for Sarah Abby-Roo or a new nursery for Chicken Little (baby 3 on the way). We are sorrowful and grateful.

Thank you. Much love to you all.

We're halfway to our goal in a matter of hours. Words can not describe our gratitude, as well as our grief.

Thank you all.

For all of those inquiring, Audrey and her family are set on meals for several days. In lieu of providing food, please consider HEB or Wal Mart gift cards for groceries and diapers in the future.

Please message me on Facebook for more information about their immediate needs and mailing address (Bethany Swoveland).

Again, thank you all. Words are not enough. We are humbled and grateful and in awe.
