Walter Stanley Rennison
March 17th, 1919 – March 20th, 2015
It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Stan Rennison on March 20 at the Comox Valley Seniors Village at the age of 96. Stan was born in St. Joseph’s Hospital to the pioneering Rennison family of Headquarters Road. He lived on the family farm his entire life until 8 months ago when he needed more care and moved to the Comox Valley Seniors Village. He attended Sandwick and Tsolum schools. In the spring of 1941he joined the Canadian Army Forestry Corp. and went overseas in the fall of 1942 serving our country in WWII. Upon his return, he spent his working years as a truck driver in the logging industry and at several local businesses and spent his final working years at the maintenance department of School District #71.
Stan loved his farm and animals and was happy knowing the land that has been in his family for 139 years has the next two generations committed to farming it. Until a few years ago Stan loved travelling but once homeward bound couldn’t get home quick enough to change his clothes and go see the animals.
Stan was predeceased by his wife of 64 years, Betty (Jan. 2014) and is survived by daughters Wenda Whynacht, Val (Gerry) McClintock and son Larry (Terry); grandchildren Julie, Lisa,Sandra, Bruce, Graeme and Owen and great-grandchildren Charlie, Elise,Tyler, Graysen and Carla and several nieces and nephews.
Thanks to Dr. Reggler and the wonderful staff at Comox Valley Seniors Village. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
A Celebration of Life will be held at Piercy’s-Mt. Washington Funeral Home, Saturday, March 28 at 2 p.m. Tea to follow.
