Andrew J. Renninger Jr. was born May 18th, 1995 in Glendale, AZ to Andrew Renninger and Susan York Renninger Lowry. He was raised by his dad in the small town of Kingman, AZ with his two sisters, Stephanie and Kayla. He graduate from Willow Canyon High School in 2013, while living with his mother and step-dad Keith Lowry.
Growing up with his sisters and best friends Jennifer and Trisha he loved playing the annoying little brother you would see in movies on TV. He thought it was his job to annoy them as much as possible. Even though he did this they were the best of friends. Sometimes over time some friends stop talking; well that was never the case with them. He would make time to go out and see them, or vice versa. They loved to play games online together no matter where any of them were at the time. Over time he gained a lot of friends both in Kingman and in Surprise/Phoenix, and will surely be missed by all.
One of his first jobs was at McDonald's at 16 and he was so excited to get started and gain some independence. He loved everyone he worked with and missed them when he left.
In 2014 Andrew was in a serious car crash where he underwent multiple surgeries. He was in the hospital and went through physical therapy for several weeks. Then in 2018 he was diagnosed with cancer and had to undergo chemo therapy for months, after which he went into remission. Even though they were trying times he consistently kept an upbeat attitude and always shined that famous bright smile.
All the while dealing with health issues he worked at Domino's and that was a job he was proud of. He was an assistant manager and he worked hard to make sure customers were always taken care of. He loved all of the friends he worked with and the company he worked for. He was actually out of work for a few months recently due to a foot injury. In his last few days he was arranging to get back to work and could not contain his excitement. He was so enthusiastic and animated, he had a bigger smile and a jump to his step.
Even though he loved being at work he always made time for friends and family. He was always there for everyone and he had one of the biggest hearts. He always made sure to say "I Love You", no matter who was there to hear it. He had one of the best smiles and a laugh that was contagious. You could tell he was happy when around his family and friends. He was the life of the party and kept everyone entertained, even if most of his jokes were cheesy.
Andrew left us too soon, at the young age of 25, there was still a lot left he wanted in life. He wanted to continue his education and work in IT, one of his passions. He also had his hopes set on traveling and then dreamed of one day starting a family with children of his own.
Andrew passed away on October 22, 2020 with a funeral service to be held on October 27th at 11:00 AM at the Wickenburg Funeral Home and Crematory.
We all thank God that he was a part of our lives and will love him and miss him forever.
