Rennie J. Yoder

GOSHEN — Rennie Jon Yoder, 56, died Saturday morning at IU Health Goshen Hospital.

He was born July 20, 1956, in Goshen, to Isander and Marlys (Nettleton) Rodriguez. At a young age he was adopted by his father, Floyd J. Yoder. On Aug. 1, 1982, he married Teri M. (Harrington) Rhoades.

She survives along with his mother, Marlys Yoder; two daughters, Lisa M. (William Crandall) Rhoades, Butler, and Annette Gonzales, Goshen; a granddaughter, Deena M. (T.J.) Stafford; three grandsons, D.J. (Latisha) Rhoades, Tony Gonzales II and Christian Gonzales; three great-grandchildren, Michael, Sarah and Joshua; two sisters, Lisa J. (Randy Crussemeyer) Yoder, Elkhart, and Lori A. Yoder, Goshen; a niece, Savannah Crussemeyer; and a nephew, Tory Yoder.

He was preceded in death by his birth father; his adopted father; and a stepdaughter, Cynthia Rhoades.

Rennie lived in Goshen all of his life. He worked as a mechanic, welder and truck driver until becoming disabled in 1996.

He liked to hunt, fish, play cards, golf, camp, swim, ski and was an avid NASCAR and White Sox fan.

He received Moose of the year award in 2002 when he was a member of Goshen #836. He broke the Jefferson High School shot put record when he was in the sixth grade. He later attended Middlebury Community Schools, and received his GED in 1995.

His body will be cremated at Yoder-Culp Crematory, Goshen. A private family service will be held at a later date.

Memorial contributions may be directed to the Elkhart County Humane Society in honor of his beloved dog, Max, who survives him.
