What are the odds of a father, son and grandson all having the same birthday – June 16? We’re not sure, but it happened at Lexington Medical Center this week.
Sara Rentz Krisnow gave birth to baby Irby Wayne Krisnow on Thursday, June 16. Baby Irby shares the same birthday as his father, Seth Krisnow, and his grandfather, the late Dennis Krisnow.
Dennis was born on June 16, 1957; Seth on June 16, 1983 and Irby on June 16, 2016.
“I was trying to hold out as long as I could so that I could have the baby on June 16,” Sara said.
Talk about a great birthday present – not to mention a great Father’s Day weekend present.
Sara and Seth live in Lexington. They’ve been married for five years and also have a two-year-old daughter named Olivia. (Her birthday is in February)
“Sara is a very giving and nice person, always spoiling me on my birthday, but I’m pretty sure she can’t top this one,” Seth said.
What’s more, Sara just happens to be the granddaughter of George Rentz, Lexington Medical Center’s first President & CEO.
Mr. Rentz began that role in 1968, while the hospital was still in the planning stage and hadn’t been built yet. He served as President & CEO for 22 years.
He and his wife are enjoying retirement in West Columbia.
Baby Irby Wayne is Mr. Rentz’s third great-grandchild.
Happy Birthday and Happy Father’s Day to the whole family.
