RENNING, CalvinPosted: May 15th, 2020
CALVIN “TODD” RENNING was tragically taken from us on Friday, May 8, 2020 at the age of 50 years.
Todd was born in Lethbridge, AB and raised in Picture Butte, AB. As a young man, he was passionate about building model cars, racing, greenery, fishing and cooking.
As Todd grew older, he wanted to live somewhere other than the flatlands of Alberta and decided to venture off to B.C. He called Burnaby, BC home for next ten years before moving back to AB.
Over the years, Todd not only worked for different employers but he also worked for family. Todd and Troy owned their own flooring company, he also worked for his brother/sister in law at DLP Welding/Mike Fortin Autobody (Mike & Lynette Fortin).
Todd was a perfectionist at everything he did and in his spare time would often go fishing, doing odd jobs for someone or just simply working on vehicles. Cars were his passion and that’s when a close friend of his asked him to be his pitman while they raced out at Bridge County Raceway. He also volunteered at the Shaughnessy Community Centre and if anyone ever needed help, you could always count on Todd to be there to lend a helping hand. He also loved to cook and get you to eat the new dishes that he thought he’d try. Some of the concoctions he’d come up with were pretty interesting and make you shake your head at, but man did they taste good!
He is lovingly remembered by his parents Darryl & Shirley Renning, brother Troy Renning (recently deceased), sister Tabetha Renning (Bob Fortin – deceased), and nephew Markus Renning, as well as numerous aunts, uncles, cousins and friends.
A Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date.
At the family’s request, in lieu of flowers and in memory of Calvin, please consider a donation to The Shaughnessy Community Association, Box 22, Shaughnessy, AB T0K 2A0.
