August 4, 1987 ~ June 8, 2017

Blue-Brich “Ben” Renick, 29, of New Florence, Missouri, tragically lost his life on Thursday, June 8, 2017 at his place of business in New Florence, leaving behind his wife, Lynlee and two children, Matty and Emma.

A Celebration of Life Service will be held at a later date.

Ben was born on August 4, 1987, in St. Louis, Missouri, a son of Frank James and Charlene Marie (Kemmish) Renick.

He was a 2006 graduate of Montgomery County R-II High School.

On April 13, 2014, in St. Charles, Missouri, he married Lynlee Jo Gallatin. They have lived all of their married life at their current address and Ben had lived all of his life there.

Ben was a self-employed owner/operator of Renick Reptiles, Inc., a nationwide reptile breeding facility in New Florence, specializing in the selective breeding of designer pythons. He had been an avid reptile enthusiast since a young age.

He enjoyed playing the drums and liked collecting horror movie props. More than anything, Ben’s life was about his family and he cherished the time he spent with his wife and children.
