Obituary

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our father Reverend Gerald Rennie on Friday May 21, 2021 in his 90th year. He died peacefully in Georgetown Hospital surrounded by his children. Gerald was born July 8, 1931 in Orangeville, Ontario. He had an interesting life with multiple career choices. He began his career as a Presbyterian Minister and moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba soon after he married Joyce to open a new church in St Vitel. After living in Winnipeg for 10 years and starting a family of three children Gerald then decided to try a different career path and moved his family back to Ontario to pursue a career in teaching. He was an English teacher for over 20 years and inspired many young people to pursue their dreams. He retired from teaching at 63. He also dabbled in politics and became a Town Councilor in Acton for 12 years. He was a man dedicated to his family and his community and enjoyed helping people and his kindness and thoughtfulness will be remembered by many.

Gerald was predeceased by his wife Joyce (2018). Lovingly remembered by his two sons Ross Rennie, David Rennie and his wife Lindsay and daughter Allison Clutterbuck and her husband Allen. Proud “Grandpa” to Curtis, Nicholas and Stephen. Loving godfather to Joyce Byers, Lisa McIsaac and their families.

Sincerest thanks to the doctors and nurses at Georgetown Hospital for their kindness and compassion.

Due to COVID restrictions, the immediate family will have asmall private funeral service.

If desired, donations in memory of Gerald, can be made to Georgetown Hospital.

I feel blessed to have had the opportunity to teach next to Gerald, whose energy, kindness and intelligence were evident daily. He was a class act.

All my condolences to the Rennie family. Gerald was the kindest and nicest man always, and a wonderful coworker at North Park. He was a true gentleman and a true Christian. He will be greatly missed.

I had the pleasure of being on a Presbytery committee in Winnipeg with Gerald about the mid '60's. He was the kind of person you were not going to easily forget. We lost track of over years but were pleased to renew our friendship when he served as the Interim minister at Knox, Georgetown. He had become wiser and kinder, if that were possible, and the caring person that we remembered him to be .He was never too busy to take the time to help with any personal problem you might have. One could say about Gerald -" Well done thou good and faithful servant". We met Gerald again at the fracture clinic in 2018 when he had fractured his shoulder, He was being the usual self, just getting along with this minor setback. We feel honoured to have met Gerald and offer our sincere condolences to his family.
