Eddy Richard Fenner, 90, of Hillsboro, Ohio, died on June 30, 2022, at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, Ohio, after a long battle with cancer. Ora Edward & Ethel Mae (Lindsey) Fenner gave birth to him at a converted schoolhouse in Concord Township, Mowrystown, Ohio, on August 9, 1931. Before he graduated from Hillsboro High School in 1949, he had to contend with the lingering symptoms of polio.
He became a Christian at the age of nine, and he dedicated the rest of his life to serving the Lord in several congregations. During his 63 years of ministry as an elder, he taught, preached, and demonstrated the love of Christ to countless others. Throughout his career, Ed had a variety of positions. He enlisted in the Navy and served his nation for four years before being discharged. While he was alive, he worked as a butcher, a farmhand, a machinist, and a real estate agent, among other things. For him, spending time with his family was the most important thing in the world.
