With tears in his eye, after a fierce year long battle with colon cancer, Ren Warmuz, Trellian Founder and CEO, passed away just after 2pm 27th October 2013, age 45, surrounded by family and still fighting to the end.
The sheer pain endured throughout would have crippled most, but not Ren. Documenting his epic battle every step of the way on his blog http://www.mcrc4.com/ he leaves behind a legacy of research, alternative treatment options, genetic tests to insist on, diets and supplements beneficial for treating cancer not known to most.
I always considered Ren an absolute genius, and was fortunate to have him part of my life, not only just growing up together but working together since 1997. We made a great team, creating and releasing many ground breaking software and web applications.
It saddens me the most that Ren leaves behind his wife and two beautiful children, age 9 and 6.
Ren’s work is far from over and a Ren Warmuz Cancer Research Foundation will be established to help others beat their “little mutants”, as Ren called his cancer.
My best friend, my brother, you will be missed!
Your forever grateful brother.
Hi David, I’m so sad to hear of Ren’s defeat after his long battle, one I’ve followed through the blog. All my sympathies go out to you, your mum and dad, and of course Ren’s family. Can you email me if there are any plans for a funeral or service for Ren in Australia. Thanks, Carl.
RIP, Ren! So saddened to hear another genius left .. Thoughts for you and the family.
I am truly saddened by Ren’s passing. He was a really nice guy. He constantly smiled, and I honestly never saw him frown, angry, unfair, or anything else that I have seen in so many other “bosses”. He was always mild mannered, polite, gentle in nature and easy to get along with. The world has truly lost a brilliant guy, and I am not just speaking of intelligence. – Len (ex employee).
