Funeral & Medical Expenses - Renner

$21,190 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 322 people in 12 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.

Friends, family, and donors: we're approaching the one year mark of Coyote Roose Renner's untimely death. He was a loving father and husband, devoted ranch hand, and unbelievable goofball. It's been a tough year, but we're honored to have known and loved him.

In celebration of his life, we're memorializing his legacy by fundraising for Ranch Hands Rescue, a Texas-based animal rescue and counseling center.


Cody's daughters and Audrey, his wife, thank you deeply for remembering his life and supporting an organization deeply aligned with his passions.

What Ranch Hand Rescue does: "Ranch Hands Rescue fills a special niche in mental health counseling services in that we specialize in treating the more complex trauma cases, such as victims of multiple abuses by multiple perpetrators and people not making progress in their current treatment programs. We heal emotionally battered people and severely abused animals, then give them a purpose at Ranch Hands Rescue through our Equine and Animal Assisted Counseling (EAAC) program, facilitated by Licensed Professional Counselors and LPC Interns."

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.


Thank you to Lauren Zakalik of WFAA for the amazing tribute to the man who was Coyote Rooster Renner, doting father, loving son, irreplaceable husband.

We are unbelievably broken, but in due time, these words and actions will mean the world to us.
