Dennis Render Obituary

Dennis (Denny) Sheridan Render, 84, of Englewood, Florida, passed away on January 28, 2024, in Sarasota, Florida.


Denny was born on January 8, 1940, to Gerald William and Mary Madeleine (Sheridan) Render in Peoria, Illinois. Denny attended Immaculate Conception Grade School and graduated from Waukegan Township High School in 1957, and had warm feeling for his upbringing in Waukegan, IL. Denny also lived in Madison, Wisconsin and Chandler, Arizona. He was a charismatic, intelligent, talented musician, writer, and artist.


Denny played guitar, drums, saxophone, and many other instruments but he was most known for his stellar piano playing and singing. Wherever Denny went, if there was a piano nearby, he would be playing and entertaining all of those around him. In 1974, Denny formed the Denny Render Country Show, traveling all over the United States and Canada. Waylon Jennings, Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Johnny Cash, David Allen Coe, Elvis Presley, Dean Martin, Jerry Lee Lewis were just a few of the many artists Denny loved to play. He was a true lover of music with a cacophony of genres that was part of his talented genetic makeup. Denny was a talented artist and for over 15 years owned “Signs by Dennis” and “A-1 Signs”, producing beautiful billboards, lettering on boats, cars, motorcycles, and signs of all sorts. He created bookshelves, drawing tables, jewelry boxes, wine glasses, exquisite chairs, and many other items to be enjoyed by others. Denny was a prolific writer, creating passages and poems filled with clever humor, quick wit, and emotion. He was a lover of lobster, filet mignon, and fine beverages. Denny loved nice cars and Harley Davidson motorcycles and attire. Most of all, Denny, loved his family and friends.


He was preceded in death by his parents Jerry and Madeleine, sister Linda Suzanne (Render) Tekampe, brother Joseph (Joe) William Render, stepdaughter Kitty (Liss) Schreiber and grandson Robert (Robbie) A. Render. He is survived by his sister Patricia (Trish) (Render) Lauraitis, sons Bob (Cheri) Render, and Dennis (Ana) Render, daughters Debi (Render) Walsh, and Stacey (Render) Nseir. He has 13 grandchildren, 23 great grandchildren, 3 great-great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews.
