Reflections for Sergeant Mark Joseph Renninger

 

I still remember hearing of your deaths as if it happened only yesterday, especially since I actually lived in Pierce County at the time.
Rest in peace, officers.

I'm just stopping by to say "yo". You and the others are never far from my thoughts and it's been so hard the past 4-1/2 years trying to come to terms with the loss of you, Tina, Greg and Ronnie. I've learned to laugh and enjoy life again but there sure is a big hole in my heart.

I missed it this year. But I still want to thank you and your fellow fallen Brothers and Sister for what you did that day to protect and serve the community of Lakewood. You made me who I am today and who I inspire to be tomorrow. Thoughts and prayers to your family and friends. you are never forgotten, and will forever be in our hearts. RIP, Brother.

We did not see you close your eyes
We did not see you die
All we knew was that you were gone
Without a last good-bye
It was such a sudden parting
Too bitter to forget
Those who love you dearly
Are the ones who can't forget.

Sgt Mark Renninger was always respectful and courteous when ever he talked to you. I was very sad when I saw on the news that Sgt Mark Renninger was a fallen hero. Lakewood Police will forever be in my prayers .

I'm working on the ribbons I do every year at this time to honor the 51 Oakland, California police officers that died in the line of duty. We put the 51 blue ribbons on a tree outside the Warehouse Bar and Grill on the anniversary of losing four of our officers in 2009. It reminded me of Lakewood's loss. I was honored to bring a Mermorial Quilt I made to honor you and Officers Richards, Owens and Griswold to the Lakewood PD. A small group from Oakland came including an Oakland PD officer. As I have family in the area I asked that they be a part of the presentation as well. The Lakewood PD gave us a tour and served us lunch and small tokens were exchanged. I hope that our being there the week following the first anniversary Oakland's loss helped your fellow officers cope with the upcoming first anniversary of Lakewood's loss. I'm not sure what brought me to Lakewood. The fact that we lost four and you lost four. That I was born in Tacoma and have ties to the area. That I was in the area a week after the tragedy to attend the funeral of a loved one. Somehow it all came together and it seemed the right thing to do. So as I sit at my computer and enter the names of Oakland's 51 I think of Lakewood's four. May God bless you all and may you rest in peace and know that you are not forgotten.

Mark, you were one of the best Sergeants I ever had in law enforcement. I know we had our disagreements because you were Army and I was a Marine but I loved and respected you for your leadership abilities. I wish the hurt of losing you didn't screw up my mind so much but I will move on. I will always miss you and your turnout stories.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the second anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

I pray for solace for all those who love and remember you for I know both the pain and pride are forever.


Rest In Peace

As the son of another WA police officer killed in the line of duty my heart goes out to the family of Sgt. Renninger. I never met him but from what I've learned he was a great man and a person of honor. May he be remembered always. I feel you're pain. Hang in there.

Mark-
It is still so hard to believe you are gone. I drive by our high school, and am overcome with emotion and memories. I can picture you talking and laughing, and imagine the sound of your voice. You were such a wise guy. I have such great memories of you. And then my mind drifts to seeing you placed on a horse drawn caison in a casket draped with a flag.The marque that read "We remember Sgt. Mark Renninger." You are loved. You are missed. You will never be forgotten.

I still miss the arguments over the greatest NFL QBs and teams, the "discussions" over pending contract issues and the dinners at Outback in days long ago. Gone but not forgotten. You will forever be with us...
