Paul E. Renner, 91, of Littlestown, died Sun, Apr 29, at Homewood at Plum Creek, Hanover.  He was the widower of Shirley A. (Myers) Renner who died March 11, 2012.  Born April 22, 1927 in Littlestown, Paul was the son of the late William H. & Mary Emma (Lemmon) Renner.  He was a 1945 Littlestown High School graduate and served in the U.S. Army Air Force from ‘45-‘47.  Paul was employed with Littlestown State Bank for 15 years. He worked for First National Bank of Hanover (National Central Bank via merger) 1962-1968.  He then was a graduate of Rutgers University Stonier Graduate School of Banking and holds a graduate certificate from American Institute of Banking.  Paul was then employed with Gettysburg National Bank from 1968-1989.  He was President of GNB  May 1, 1978 until his retirement in 1989. 
Paul was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church, Littlestown, American Institute of Banking, Pennsylvania Institute of Banking and numerous other professional organizations.  His community activities included:  past member of Gettysburg Rotary Club, past member of Board of Directors of Gettysburg Hospital and Adams County Agricultural Extension Committee. 
Surviving are his two sons:  Steven W. Renner & wife, Linda, of Littlestown; The Rev. Chris E. Renner & wife, Bea, of Chambersburg; his daughter Paula K.

Paul was an avid outdoorsman. For many years he served as an adult leader for Littlestown Boy Scout Troop 84.  He was especially fond of hiking the Appalachian Trail, Canoe Trips and Camping.  Later in life he found his dream property in Tioga County,  upon which he built a cabin for family and friends to enjoy.  Fondly called “Pappy’s Retreat”, this place provided Paul with solace and enthusiasm for life during his retirement years.  He had a passion for the outdoors, the mountains and the beauty of the natural environment.  He truly was in awe of God’s Creation.
