In memoriam: James W. Renney Sr.

James W. Renney Sr. will be remembered by many people as the longtime master of ceremonies at the annual shad planking in Wakefield. That time-honored Virginia political event has attracted politicians and candidates from both parties for years.

Mr. Renney, a former mayor of Wakefield, died April 26 at the age of 80. A graduate of the Unversity of Richmond and its law school, he began practicing law in Wakefield in 1958. The Richmond Times-Dispatch has details.
