James Michael Wrenn
March 18, 1971 -- January 27, 2021

Mike was born on March 18th, 1971, and graduated to Heaven on January 27th, 2021, at the age of 49. He was a loving, caring, genuine father, brother, son, and friend.

Always creative, he adored visual arts and often painted during his free time. He was a deep thinker and writing was his passion, but he also excelled at comforting people. His love for martial arts led him to practice Tai Chi on his own, and Kendo, Capoeira, and Krav Maga with his children. He also taught many of us that gaming is a very cool hobby.

During his major studies in Japanese Language and Culture at UT, he went on a mission trip to Japan, which strengthened his love for the country and culture. That was also when he met his future wife, Toshie. After graduation, he moved to Japan, got married in 1994, and had two children, Alexis Amane and Jean Minami — he was so proud of them! As a faithful member of Chiba Church for many years, he had a great impact on people, especially children. He utilized his creative and linguistic skills for his many careers, such as teaching English, working for TBS, Cookie Jar, Toneplus, his own business Auxhiler, and other occupations as a creative project manager.

After he moved back to Texas in 2017, he became an active member of Meadows Baptist Church of Plano, where he made many more friends. He volunteered to serve as a part of the tech team until the pandemic outbreak, and was eager to get back on. Spending time with his children was his top priority. He looked forward to weekly Skype calls with Jean, and loved spending time checking out cool restaurants and cooking with Amane. With friends, he enjoyed playing DND and was very passionate about his extremely unique characters and often did the unexpected.

He was survived by his children, Amane and Jean; sisters, Wyndie and Stephanie; brothers, Kristopher, Mark, and Mike B; parents, Juanita, Patricia, Bobby, and Sue Ellen; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and fur babies he adored.

A memorial service is scheduled for March 13 at 1:00 PM at Meadows Baptist Church, with streaming available at meadowsbaptist.org.

 

マイクは1971年3月18日に生まれ、2021年1月27日に49歳で昇天しました。彼は愛情深く、誠実で思いやるのある父親であり、兄であり、息子であり、そして友人でありました。

創造力に恵まれていた彼は芸術を好み、自由時間は絵画に費やしました。彼は思想家でもあり、執筆にも情熱を注ぎ、周りの人に安心感を与えることも多々ありました。格闘技も好み、太極拳を単独で、剣道、カポエラ、クラヴ・マガを父子で学びました。

大学では日本語と日本文化を専攻していた最中に、日本へ伝道に行ったことが国と文化をより一層愛するきっかけとなりました。そこで将来の妻、寿枝と出会いました。大学卒業後、日本へ移り1994年に結婚、アレクシス天とジャン陽を授り、彼は二人をとても誇っていました。何年にも渡って千葉キリスト教会の敬虔な教徒であり続け、多くの方々、特に子供たちに強い印象を与えました。創造性と語学力を様々な職業で活用しました。英会話教師、TBSのCG部門、カナダのアニメーション会社 Cookie Jar、ゲーム会

社 Toneplus、自営業で立ち上げたオクザイラーなど、多彩な場所でクリエイティブプロジェクトマネージャーとして勤めました。

2017年にテキサスに戻った後、プレーノのメドウズバプティスト教会の会員となり、更に多くの友人に恵まれました。また、技術チームの一員としてコロナウイルスの感染爆発前まで貢献し、コロナ収束の頃はまた一員として復帰することを望んでいました。子供たちと過ごすことが一番の生き甲斐でした。ジャンとのスカイプを毎週待ち望み、天と様々なレストランに寄ったり料理することが楽しみでした。他にも友達とダンジョンズ&ドラゴンズをすることが趣味で、独特なキャラクターに磨きをかけることに余念がなく、毎回予想もできない行動をすることもありました。

マイクは長女の天、長男のジャン、妹のウィンディとステファニー、弟のクリストファーとマーク、継兄のマイク、両親のワニータ、パトリシア、ボビーとスー・エレン、沢山のいとこ、姪、甥、そして愛犬と愛猫に囲まれ天へと呼ばれました。
