RENNIE, Robert George

Robert George Rennie, 75, of Sudbury, ON passed away peacefully, surrounded by loved ones on Saturday, October 23, 2021. He was the loving son of Norah (Simpson) and Andy Rennie, both predeceased.  Loving father to Paula and Jeff (Lesley). Cherished grandfather to Sean, Brandon and Brooke. Dearly loved brother to his twin Ross (Patti), as well as brothers Jim, and Dave (Sue). He took great pride in his long career as a dedicated Canada Revenue Agency employee where he was a Certified General Accountant. He was quick in offering help to family and friends for official or legal matters. He was a whiz with numbers, a witty writer, and a heck of a card player who was blessed with a sense of humor that could tell a joke with the best of them. He grew up on a farm in Toronto where he and his twin brother Ross would be mischievous enough to make their mother worry but they also excelled at their interests and hobbies making their mother proud. He moved to Sudbury with his own young family to further his career and to be closer to the activities that he loved. Salmon fishing in the clear waters of Lake Huron outside of South Baymouth was his go-to fishing spot. He loved to spend free time camping, fishing and hunting with family or long time friends (chums) Dwayne Lanktree and Gary Therrien. He was always willing for an adventure, a fun time and a cold beer. He loved to spend weekends and holidays on Manitoulin Island and Christmas and birthday get-togethers with his brothers in Toronto. A Celebration of Robert’s Life will be arranged at a later date. Expressions of sympathy can be made in his name directly to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or a charity of your choice.

  1. We are so sorry to hear of your loss. Bob was a fine colleague to Marc and I loved the fun stories that would come from their out of town trips together. My favourite was the Canada Goose story.
    We send our deepest condolences.
