Ian Renner, age 59, died May 18, 2021 in Los Angeles, Calif. Born in Morristown, Tenn., Ian was a graduate of Boston University and later set up and ran one of the earlier video stores in the Boston area.
He designed men’s clothing with the “Ian” label, and designed and built micro-sized housing in Cape Town, South Africa, before the concept became known there.
Ian was an accomplished pianist, who loved music, wrote it and was active with various music groups.
He is survived by his loving mother Alice Goldfarb; sisters Deborah Renert of Jerusalem and Diane Lechter of Atlanta; niece Golda Winston; and nephew Benjamin Lechter. In lieu of flowers, donations in Ian’s memory may be made to CancerCare, Hadassah or a charity of one’s choice.
Graveside services were held May 20 at Arlington Memorial Park. Arrangements by Dressler’s Jewish Funeral Care, 770-451-4999.
