John C. Renner, father of Alderman W.L. Renner, died at his home, 218 West Atchison street, shortly before 9 o'clock this morning of heart trouble. He was 68 years old.

Mr. Renner became ill about two years ago when after 41 years of continuous service with the Missouri Pacific he was forced to retire. He had been bedfast for three weeks and his death was not unexpected.

Mr. Renner was born in Chicago, Jan. 1, 1864 and came to Jefferson City with his parents when a child two years old. He has resided here since that time. He held a position with the Missouri Pacific as section foreman for many years.

Nov. 19, 1891 he was united in marriage to Miss Nannie Pollock. She died October 2, 1904. Two sons, William L. Renner and John P. Renner, survive him. There are five grandchildren. Two sisters, Miss Barbara Renner and Mrs. W.A. Jordan, both of this city also survive. Mr. Renner was a consistent member of the Lutheran Trinity Church.

The funeral will take place at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon at the house and at 2:30 at the Lutheran Trinity Church. Rev. Richter will conduct the services. Burial will be in Woodlawn cemetery.

The body will be removed from the Dawson-Tanner Chapel to the family home tomorrow.
