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 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.
