Mr. Reno probably had sold more wallpaper in Youngstown than any other man. He had been in the business all his life. When he came to Youngstown 48 years ago from Sharon, he became affiliated with the old S. D. Currier Globe Store, where he sold wallpaper for many years.
Mr. Reno was then asked to be in charge of the Strouss-Hershberg Co. wallpaper department when it was established in 1911 and had been there ever since.
C. J. Strouss, president and general manager of the store said today: "He was very active in the business and practically never missed a day at the store in his life until about a year ago when his health began to fail."
He was a member of the Protected Home Circle, Odd Fellows and Trinity M. E. Church.
Born at Sharon Aug. 6, 1863, Mr. Reno was the son of Isaac and Lucy Woodward Reno. He was married Feb. 27, 1886, to Miss Lydia Ann Blunt.
Mr. Reno leaves his wife; two children, Mrs. Charles Henry Smith, of Cleveland, and Mrs. Frederick H. Creed, of Youngstown, and six grandchildren.
