Gruff and uncompromising on the outside, loyal and caring on the inside: That’s how friends and colleagues described the late Clarence “Jack” Renner, who passed away Aug. 17 at the Frazee Care Center.


Renner was employed by Lakes Publishing — as Detroit Lakes Newspapers used to be called — from 1951 to 1983, spending much of that time as manager of the commercial printing department.
