It is with heavy hearts that we announce the peaceful passing of Sandy Renouf on Sunday, November 5, 2017 at the age of 78 years.

Sandy worked tirelessly as an owner and operator in the logging and heavy equipment industry in Newfoundland. He had a love of the outdoors from childhood being in the woods hunting, fishing, snowmobiling and riding A.T.V.s. Sandy was a known wrestling and boxing fan, he loved to play crib with his daughter and he will be remember by all for his story-telling and outgoing nature. His family and friends will miss his sense of humour and infectious laughter.

He is survived by his loving daughter, Vanessa; two sisters and a brother-in-law, Margaret Young, Isabelle and George Brown; his three brothers and a sister-in-law, Andrew and Renata Renouf, Neil Renouf and Peter Renouf; and numerous extended family members. Sandy was predeceased by devoted wife Ada; his parents; his brother and his four sisters.

In honour of Sandy’s wishes a celebration of his life will be held in Newfoundland at later date. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the charity of the donor’s choice and please take a moment to remember your fond memories with Sandy.

In living memory of Sandy Renouf, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB Telephone: 403-256-9575.

    I’m am sorry to hear about the passing of uncle Sandy it will be different not to hear his bold voice and laughter. You could hear him before you saw him but that’s what made uncle Sandy – uncle Sandy. I am glad to have had the chance to have a chat or two with him before he returned to Calgary this summer. Rest in peace uncle Sandy. God speed. My condolences to you Vanessa and his surviving siblings and friends.

    Sad to hear of Sandy’s passing. Although he was a little older than my sister and I, I remember him well, and Ada. He was always larger than life, outgoing, friendly, funny. My condolences to the family.

  17. I remember your Dad always telling jokes , he loved to laugh and make people around him laugh with him 🙂 He loved his Cribbage and he beat me every game we played and of course he’d laugh about that too. He was such a kind and caring man and would do anything to help people in need. You were his world <3

    Rest in Peace Sandy XOXO
