Renny Steven Brandy
BRANDY, RENNY STEVEN, age 74 of Shawnee, Kansas, passed away on March 4th, 2021, with his daughter and son-in-law by his side. Renny was born on January 30th, 1947, in Kansas City, Missouri, to Gertrude and Harold Brandy and lived most of his life in Shawnee, Kansas. He attended Shawnee Mission North High School and joked that he was among the first graduating class. After graduation, Renny served his country in the Navy during The Vietnam War. His tour included time on an ammunition ship reloading supplies to aircraft carriers and destroyers off the coast of Vietnam. In recent times, Renny had been working part-time at Kansas City Building Supply where he was affectionately known as, “Old Timer”. He enjoyed his days there and the structure it provided during retirement. Renny appreciated a good story and had an unforgettable sense of humor. He loved all Kansas City sports, but you would never, ever, catch him rooting for the Jayhawks. He was an avid Wildcat fan and loved cheering for Pittsburg State football and the Oklahoma Sooners. Renny enjoyed Taco Tuesday, a greasy cheeseburger and a cold Bud Light; he was a Ned Yost look-a-like, was never shy about talking to anyone, and once caught a pass from Patrick Mahomes, but he would say his proudest achievement was his role as Dad and Papa. His friends can attest to the many stories shared about daughter Kristin, grandson Jacob, granddaughter Kaitlin, and son-in-law Jay. Renny is survived by the family previously listed, as well as brother Terry and a multitude of loving friends.
A celebration of life will be scheduled at a later date.
