OAKLAND (KRON) — Wolfgang Renner and Michelle (Colette) Sylvan were a couple who were inside the Oakland warehouse where 36 people died in a three-alarm fire late Friday night.

Wolfgang has been declared deceased, and Michelle is still missing.

Their friend Robert Janca shared this statement KRON4:

“Two friends of mine, who several friends are likely to know, perished in the fire. Wolfgang Renner and Michelle Sylvan. Wolfgang was about as free of an individual as anyone is likely to ever meet. When we were close, it was a joy to go and visit him as he was a capable host who made all of his friend’s feel welcome and celebrated. His lovely, wildly creative partner Michelle was a potent visionary and was always up for life’s adventure. The world is a decidedly less colorful one without them. So long dear souls. Thank you for the treasures you shared. We will see you in Valhalla and in the interim, we will celebrate your rich lives as you would undoubtedly have wanted us to.”
