Condolences to the Family of Ren Warmuz


Ren WarmuzI want to extend my condolences to the friends and family of Ren Warmuz. According to a Facebook post this morning from Ren’s brother David Warmuz, Ren passed away at the age of 45. Ren had been battling Metastatic Colorectal Cancer for a little over a year, and his battle with the disease was chronicled on, a blog Ren set up to discuss his illness and treatment. Despite the fact that there isn’t a cure for this type of cancer, Ren was determined to fight it, and he was able to live for a year after his diagnosis, despite being given only two months to live by his doctors.

Ren and his brother David founded Trellian, the company that owns and operates Ren was active in the domain investment space, and he left behind many good friends and family.

Although I didn’t know Ren very well, I know that he is thought of highly by his colleagues and clients, and he was well respected by those who knew him. Ren will be missed.

My condolences go out to the Warmuz family and to those who knew Ren.

    That’s just terribly sad!

    He sounded like a really tough individual the way he took on the battle.

    Very tragic for Ren and his family.

    Seek the Lord while there is still time. You never know when your time is up.

    God bless the family…. This is very, very sad as he was so young and talented……

    PS. For those of you who don’t like the word “God” because of political correctness, I continue to pray to God for you, as I do for the family of Ren Warmuz.

      I have no problem with the way people express themselves.

      Thank you Elliot for honoring Ren. I did not know Ren but have spent some of the morning reading about him because of your post. He was a very special person and an extremely courageous person as he battled this horrible disease. I have the highest respect for Ren Warmuz. Thanks again Elliot.

      Amen Brother.

      For anyone fighting chronic illness, do not underestimate the power of the Holy Spirit to heal. Satan is real and he wants to mess you up but can only do so if there is unrepented sin. That is how the Universe works. It took me a very long time to figure it out myself, but Praise God I did.


      Is any sick among you? let him call the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:

      And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.

      Confess your faults one to another, and pray for one another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.

      — James 5:14-16


      Sick but don’t like churches? You don’t need to go to one. Read the King James on your own and ask Jesus Christ to send his Holy Spirit to guide you.

    Ren will be missed but not forgotten. Certainly his family and friends will remember him for his gentleness, intelligence and courage. Most people know of Ren as a successful Domainer, or the SEO guy, but this incredibly bright man also had a creative side as evidenced by his music. Listen to one of his more popular songs at Yes the photos in the video are of Ren two decades ago.
