Obituary for John L. Rensink

John Lee Rensink, age 81, of Orange City, Iowa, passed away on September 7, 2019.

A visitation will be held on Saturday, September 14, from 9:30am to 10:30am, at the American Reformed Church in Orange City. A funeral service will follow at 11:00am. Arrangements are under the direction of the Oolman Funeral Home in Orange City.

He was born on November 24, 1937 to John and Magdalena Rensink in Boyden, Iowa, where he grew up. He graduated from Boyden High School, the University of South Dakota, and Drake Law School in Des Moines, Iowa. He proudly served his country in the U.S. Army JAG Corps from 1965-1968. John began private law practice in Independence, Iowa. He spent the remainder of his over 50-year law career in Orange City.

John was a man of integrity, faith, and generosity. He served his community and church in many ways over the years. He was an avid outdoorsman, enjoying hunting, golfing, fishing, and more. John had a keen interest in history and politics, and his mind was sharp to the very end of his life. John and Phyllis spent many enjoyable winters in Arizona during their retirement years.

Most of all, John adored his family. He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Phyllis (Siderius); daughters, Susan (John) Osweiler, of West Des Moines, Iowa, and Patricia (Mark) Vogel, of Orange City, Iowa; and son Mike (Heather) Rensink, of Atlanta, Georgia. He was also blessed with five grandchildren: Elizabeth, Matthew, Emily, Layne and Chance. In addition, John is survived by a sister, Elaine (Dave) Kilian; a brother, Ron (Susan) Rensink; sisters-in-law; brothers-in-law; and many nieces and nephews.

John was preceded in death by his parents.
