Hal Renninger's wife, Georgeanne, informed TFFN that Hal, owner of "Cobralcon" passed away at 3:15 a.m. today. He stopped breathing in the middle of the night and died in his sleep.

His wife posted this:

"I am Georgeanne Mintner, Hal Renninger's wife. I am posting this message in hopes that all of you who know Hal will see it. My dear Hal died last night in his sleep. It happened about 3:15 a.m. while we were in bed. I woke up because he started breathing very loudly, as he sometimes does. I didn't try to wake him up because he usually just settles back down into his regular breathing pattern. However, this time he just stopped breathing. It took me a while to realize that he wasn't breathing. I just sat with him alone for a long time and called a friend in the morning. I am so sorry to send you all this news. He talks about all of you, and I cannot accurately express how much you and the Falcon groups have meant to him over the years.
Hal left this website open, I am thinking because he knew he wasn't feeling right. Not that he has for years, but I am thinking that he would want me to put out this post. Thank you for everything you have done for my Hal. You can email me at gmintner@rocketmail.com if you would like to do so. I am afraid to rely on this board only because I am not familiar with it and don't know how to log in if it goes off.

Georgeanne"
