Obituary

Lester Steven Drennen was born February 26, 1975 in Marietta, Ohio, the son of Ira Drenner and Barbara Vakoc. He was employed by Yazaki of North America as a quality engineer, but his real passion lay in ministering to children, which he did for 16 years of his life. He did Gospel Magic and he could frequently be found making people laugh with his quirky sense of humor. Lester enjoyed hunting and shooting, his motorcycles, playing video games, reading and most of all hanging out with his wife Amy. Later in life, he enjoyed doing cooking. He will be remembered as a loving, funny and faith-filled man who loved above all else...
