Obituary for Brian D. Rentsch

Brian Douglas Rentsch passed away October 29, 2019 surrounded by loved ones. He was born May 16, 1964 in Mountain View, CA.

Brian’s family moved to Sheridan, Oregon when he was young. He graduated from Sheridan High School where he excelled in academics as well as in sports. He helped his high school basketball team claim the state championship and started his musical career.

Brian attended Oregon State University, and then went to Cal State Long Beach. He graduated with a bachelor’s degree in international business from Cal State Los Angeles, where he met the love of his life Cecilia Casillas. They married in 1993 and moved back to Sheridan, where they started their family. Brian ran a successful construction business and continued his passion and talent for music with his rock band, The Melody Butchers (formerly, The Fugitives).

Brian was very active in his family life, playing and coaching soccer, basketball, and volleyball. He was a great friend and role model to many. His positive attitude and giving spirit will be greatly missed.

He is survived by his wife Cecilia Casillas-Rentsch and his 3 children, Diego, Natalia, and Dominique. His parents York and Joanna Rentsch, his siblings Laura Monroe, Curtis Rentsch, Michael Rentsch, and Christina Fifield, all of Sheridan, OR, and many more extended family also survive him.

A celebration of life will be held at the Sheridan High School Gymnasium on Sunday, November 10th at 12 noon.

Donations for a scholarship in his name will be accepted to the “Brian Rentsch Memorial Fund” at First Federal Bank or at Macy and Son’s in lieu of flowers or gifts.
