July 11, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta
Hugo Renden, beloved husband of Dominga Marie , passed away peacefully with all his family at his bedside on Friday, July 11, 2014 at the Peter Lougheed Hospital after a short illness.
Besides his beloved wife of 67 years, Hugo leaves behind his sons Warren and Stephen (Lorraine), his daughter Sheila Greenberg, son-in-law Michael Greenberg and granddaughter Rochelle Greenberg. He was predeceased by his father Walter Renden, mother Louise Renden and brother Walter Renden Jr.
Hugo enjoyed a rich and fulfilling life. He graduated from St. Thomas College in Minnesota and spent most of his working years in the oil industry in Alberta, first with Texaco and Hamilton Brothers, then with Kerr-McGee. Upon retirement Hugo has enjoyed the company of family and friends, the accomplishments of his granddaughter Rochelle, his many pets, Dixieland jazz and his prized and beloved cactus garden. Hugo was fortunate to have been able to live life on his terms and in his later years he especially enjoyed a beer in his yard after a hard day working in his garden. He will be sadly missed but fondly remembered.
A private family service will be held at a later date. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
