Joseph Rensch


Joseph M.

Joseph Martin Rensch, 62, of Toledo, passed away peacefully in his residence, on Monday, July 14, 2014, with his family by his side. Joe was born in Washington, D.C. on June 11, 1952, to John Leo and Norma Jean (Grimes) Rensch.

After graduating from Waite High School in 1970, Joe joined the Marine Corps, in which he proudly served. In 1977, he started his own landscaping company, Rensch Landscape Management.

His son continues to serve the Toledo area with the same understanding of quality that goes with the Rensch Landscape Management name.

In addition to his strong work ethic, Joe had a passion for basketball. For over ten years he coached youth basketball for several organizations (East Toledo Family Center, CYO, and Sylvania Recreation). He enjoyed the opportunity to pass on his knowledge and skill of the game. His greatest joy was coaching his own two sons and watching them play
