Reno L. Edgeton, 56, of Independence, IA, formerly of Cedar Rapids, IA, died on Sunday, October 20, 2019.

Reno was born on November 12, 1963, in Dallas, TX, the son of Reno L. Gonzales and Dorothy J. Maskewit. In 1969 his family moved to Cedar Rapids and were adopted by Loren J. Edgeton. He attended the Cedar Rapids Schools. He was proud of his heritage as a member of the Menominee Indian Tribe, and in 2007 he moved to the reservation in Keshena, WI. There he attended the College of Menominee where he received his GED. He loved the outdoors and loved spending time fishing the Wolf River in Wisconsin. He also spent time working as a river guide near the Big Smokey Falls on the Wolf River. In 2013 Reno moved back to Cedar Rapids, IA, and later in early 2019 he made his home in Independence, IA to be closer to his sister, Dorothy Edgeton.

He loved to go out and socialize, he was known to be able to talk with anyone about anything over a beverage at the local bar. He loved to read and was true military historian.
