Rensler Lyman Pomeroy was the son of Beulah Mae Imes Pomeroy and Rensler Lyman Pomeroy. Ren was born in Sawpit, CO and raised in Colorado and Mesa, AZ. Ren graduated from Mesa High School, Mesa, AZ. Ren married Alma Metcalf and they had two daughters, Diana and Linda. Later Ren and Alma divorced. Ren then married Verna Mae Ireton and they had one daughter. Ren and Verna Pomeroy lived in Bend, OR. Ren was in the USAF, World War II, and was a lst Lt. with the 8th AAF Bomber Station serving as a Navigator and Bombardier. Ren was the holder of the distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal with 3 oak-leaf clusters.
Rensler flew on 25 combat bombing operations as a navigator of a Flying Fortress of the 8th AAF. Returning from a flight to Ryuham (sic) Norway, Ren navigated his plane to cut off distance when the gas was running low. He repeated this performance when his squadron had bombed an airfield near Bordeaux, France. After this latter mission, Ren received a verbal commendation for gallantry in caring for his dying bombardier who had been struck by flak. Ren's buddy died in Ren's arms and this was a very great loss to Ren and the rest of the crew. Ren regularly flew on the "Tiger Girl." Ren was a kind and gentle person who was loved by all.
