Robert "Bob" Wren Teller of tales, giver of time, maker of jokes, Robert “Bob” Wren of Mt. Pleasant, TN, passed away in his home on Sunday August 11, 2019.

Bob or “Papa” as he was commonly referred to, was a larger than life personality, who loved deeply and was loved deeply. Bob was born on January 27, 1959 in Columbia to the late Betty and Billy Joe Wren. The Wren’s founded and operated “Wren’s Hardware & Furniture” in Mt. Pleasant for over 30 years. Bob continued his family legacy by keeping the store up throughout the duration of his career. Bob was always involved in a project, a master “tinkerer”. His projects ranged anywhere from woodworking, medal detecting and even cooking. If he wasn’t working on a project, he was investing his time in people.
