Obituary of Russell Renwick
Russell passed away suddenly but peacefully on Thursday, October 5, 2017 in his home east of Balgonie, SK. He was predeceased by his parents, Victor Lorne Renwick, Jessie Olive (Renwick) Curtis and step-father Edwin Curtis. He is survived by his brother Barrie Allan Renwick; his children Roxanne (Roger) Brown, Dean Renwick and Roean Renwick; grandchildren Drew Brown (Megan Hannah), Alexandria and Vincent Renwick; great-grandchildren Hunter, Bexleigh and Willow Brown; and nieces Susan and Linda Renwick. Russ spent his life working in the electrical field, first at Electric Motor Services then in the late 70's he became a journeyman electrician. After a few unique jobs he was hired full time at the Regina General Hospital where he retired in 2007. He was fascinated with all things space and followed NASA avidly and was a strong supporter of the Canadian Military. Russ was also a long-time resident and member of Green Haven Sun Club. He built his own computers and helped to keep the kids computers operational. He was a Rider fan and was hopeful for the 2017 season in the new stadium. He hammered, sawed, plumbed and wired. He was a true “Jack Of All Trades” in a time when manual knowledge is slipping away.
