He also served in the U.S. Army during World War II and was honorably discharged.
“He was a World War II veteran. He said, ‘I survived that, but I can’t survive this,’” Johnson said.
He will be cherished and remembered forever by his two children; grandson Michael Carlson; and his great-grandson, Kash Carlson.

Name: Jerry Rennick
Died: April 11
Jerry Rennick got his start in the agricultural industry by driving a truck.
He worked his way up the ladder into management and eventually became a salesman.
When he wasn’t hunting with his dog or cheering for IU basketball, he was playing music with friends.
In early March 2020, Rennick headed to the Bloomington area for one of his regular music sessions and became sick shortly afterward.
At first he thought the fever, body aches and dry throat were signs of the flu, but his daughter Erin Baldwin had read the warnings about COVID-19 and called the local health department. Rennick isolated himself in his apartment.
A week later, Rennick, who had COPD, sent Baldwin a text saying he couldn’t breathe and was calling an ambulance. He spent three days in a Williamsport hospital before he was transferred to a hospital in Indianapolis and hooked up to a ventilator.
As Rennick continued battling the illness, his family urged the community not to shrug off the virus.
“This is not a time for finger-pointing. This is a time for love and compassion and support,” Baldwin said. “We really, as humans, need to come together on this. No human lives should be lost over something we can prevent.”
