RIP Ranger Renniger. In my opinion, he was an great Ranger from 2/75th back in the 90's that I served with. I hate seeing fellow former Rangers in things like this or situations where their lives were taken far to early. I was smoked many times by SSG Renniger, as I knew him then, and he was always one to make sure that the Ranger Standards were enforced. A Ranger that truly lived by the Ranger Creed.

RIP Ranger, It's a shame that his status as a Ranger was never mentioned in the memorial page.

I never served in 2nd Bat but while I was serving in 3rd Bat in the 90's fellow rangers from 2nd Bat would speak highly of him. Rest In Peace Ranger Renninger.

I currently live in the Seattle area and the news of the suspect possibly being in the area have put this city on the edge right now. I hope they catch this coward and bring him to justice.

Rest in Peace, Ranger. Thank you for your service.


Sgt. Mark Renninger, 39, settled in Washington state after his military service brought him there. A police veteran of 13 years, he served eight years with the Tukwila Police Department and the last five with the Lakewood Police Department.

Renninger, a 1989 graduate of Liberty High School, was killed along with three other Lakewood officers Sunday morning when a gunman burst into the Parkland, Wash., coffee shop where they were working on laptops and started shooting.

“Mark was a professional, dedicated police officer who made the ultimate sacrifice,” his brother, Matthew Renninger, tells WFMZ-TV in a statement. “More importantly, he was a loving and devoted father, husband and family member who will be missed by many.”


Matthew Renninger was a police officer in Easton who retired in 2006 after accidentally killing fellow officer Jesse Sollman in the gun cleaning room at Easton police headquarters in March 2005.

A 37-year old Tacoma, Wash., man, Maurice Clemmons, is considered a person of interest in connection with the shooting, according to law enforcement officials.

Clemmons was released from jail just six days ago despite facing several felony charges, reports say. Some of those charges were associated with allegedly punching a sheriff's deputy in the face in May.

Formerly of Arkansas, Clemmons had a 95-year sentence in that state commuted by then-Gov. Mike Huckabee in 2000.

In addition to Renninger, 37-year-old Ronald Owens, 40-year-old Tina Griswold and 42-year-old Greg Richards were the other officers slain at the Forza Coffee Co.

Its not unusual for the memorial page to use the same account of an incident for multiple officer deaths for the first few days until more information comes in reference to their background, then their bio is amended.

If its not added, we will ask that it's done. Sgt. Renninger was also on the board of the Washington State Tactical Officers Association as the CFO.
