M&M's and a broken wand: Local magician is remembered
The ceremony, said Ries, of Ellwood City, is intended to honor a magician upon his passing. And few people would have been more deserving of a magician's funeral than Brenner, who died Sunday after an extended illness. By vocation, Brenner, 61, was a locksmith at Geneva College, but he was a magician out of passion. For 30 years, the Ellwood City resident was a regular performer at gatherings throughout the area, and beyond. He performed on the Gateway Clipper fleet and worked in the art of illusion across the country. More importantly, at least for more than 20 magicians who turned up Thursday for the Broken Wand ceremony, Brenner was a mentor.
