He served the community by working with Robertson County EMS and later became the opperations manger for CHI St Joseph. He was a member of the Free Masons. Although he was a devoted public servant he still found time to engage in many life long hobbies such as bowling, Dungeons and Dragons, knife making, comic books and engaging in all things nerdy. He was an active member in the Cedar Creek gun club. But what he truly loved doing was spending time with those he cared about may it be visiting comic con, playing domino's, hunting, jumping rc trucks out in the yard, or cooking an amazing plate of food and sending you a picture just to rub it in. Those who knew Rene knew him as a tough, yet loving member of the community who you could go to for honesty, advice, and in times of need even a shoulder to lean on. He was someone you could count on to have your back, but also someone you could count on to fool with you all the time. His sense of humor in life wa
s unparralled and something that brought smiles to many people's faces. He will truly be missed.
