Born in Fano, Italy, Mr. Renzoni came to the United States through Ellis Island when he was 2 years old. He became a citizen in 1931.
He graduated from Hutchinson- Central High School in 1927. Four years later, he graduated with distinction from the University at Buffalo and taught business math, business law and typing at Riverside High School for 34 years, until he retired in 1972.
Friends and family remember Mr. Renzoni as a polite gentleman who became quite skilled in a variety of activities, including golf and bridge. He enjoyed sharing those interests with his many nieces and nephews and their children.
Mr. Renzoni caddied at the Country Club of Buffalo in the 1920s, when it was located on Bailey Avenue. He went on to become a scratch golfer.
He played competitive bridge until he was 95, and was a member of the Whist and Bridge Center bridge clubs. He was a master bridge player, accumulating more than 2,200 Silver Life Master Points.
When he turned 100 last year, the Bridge Centre of Buffalo held a birthday party for him. Eighteen tables were filled with people who wanted to pay tribute to him by playing bridge, including many who had not played in years.
He lived in Buffalo until 1986, when he moved to Williamsville.
