Donald Dean Renshaw was born October 10, 1925 in rural Dallas Center on the Renshaw farmstead. He was the son of Dewey Lee and Nettie (Leggitt) Renshaw. He married the love of his life, Norma Jean Agnes Bannick, January 24, 1947, nearly 72 years ago. They loved to travel and took many memorable trips.

Don loved to play pool and bowled on the local bowling leagues. He was an avid fisherman, and would venture off to Canada on a fishing trip two or three times a year, in his prime. He was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church.

Don truly enjoyed his seventeen years as a Pioneer Seed Salesman. Pioneer Days was always a highlight to Don as he enjoyed entertaining his customers.

Survivors include his wife Jean Renshaw of Perry, IA; one daughter Janet (Larry) Clark of Cumming, IA; two sons Larry Renshaw of Dallas Center, IA, Vern (Deanna) Renshaw of Minburn, IA; one sister Joan Rogers of Conway, MO; thirteen grandchildren and thirty-two great grandchildren.

Preceding Donald in death were his parents; one brother Robert Renshaw; two sisters Louise Tuttle and Darlene Agee.
