RENKE, Herbert

January 25, 1930 – July 16, 2015

Herb passed away peacefully at Maple Ridge Seniors Village. Survived by his loving wife of 55 years Agnes, daughters Connie (Phil) and Karen (Mike), grand- children Tara, Kyle, Alison and Jenna, brothers Alfred (Rita) and Paul (Luise), sister-in-law Christa and their respective families. Predeceased by his brother Erwin. Herb was born in Strassburg by the Black Sea and came to Canada at age 21, followed by his two brothers. He was a welder by trade but in his spare time built our homes, a boat, canoes, kayaks, furniture and many other projects. Herb was a kind, honest family man with an easy laugh. He sometimes had a gruff exterior but always with a gentle heart. A private family memorial will be held at a later date. Donations can be made to the Alzheimer’s Society or charity of your choice.
