Ren was a hardworking, successful businessman and entrepreneur owning several businesses in Easton, PA and Annapolis, MD before becoming an insurance manager moving to Savannah, GA, Houston and Dallas, TX.  He always provided a beautiful home filled with lots of love and laughter for his loving wife, Harriet, and three surviving daughters, Debra Marino and husband Tom, Renee Casciole, and Darlene Smith and husband Gene.  He is lovingly referred to as Pappie or Pap by his surviving grandchildren, Tara Vespa, Kyle Casciole and wife Emma, Lindsay Roche, Katie Casciole Reynolds and husband Steven, Gene Smith and Zackery Smith, whom he loved dearly.  In addition, he is survived by many nieces and nephews who always enjoyed his fun loving spirit.   His greatest joy came from spending time with his family and many memorable family get togethers.  Over the years he owned various boats and often lived on the water so he could enjoy boating, one of his favorite pastimes.

My grandfather was truly an amazing man. He filled my life and the life of my family with such beauty, loving us without limit. I cannot express how lucky I feel to have shared my entire life with him, and the loss I feel at not hearing his voice tell me he loves me, or getting a hug from him when I need one. As sad as I am to have lost him, for now I am content in knowing we will see him again.

Excellent customer service, they made you feel like you were their only customer. Very helpful and explained what we should expect during the process. They basically took care of our needs during this time. They contacted DFW National Cemetery for us which made it a smooth experience. Definitely will use them again.
