1948 - 2017

Tom Renton of Kamloops BC passed away after a lengthy illness on May 7, 2017 at 69 years of age. Born on May 2, 1948 in Port Coquitlam, BC, Tom leaves behind his loving wife Ann and daughter Jennifer, brother Jack (Patty), sister Lorrie and extended family. He was predeceased by his parents Fred and Pat. Tom will also be missed by his faithful companion, Katie.

As a young man, Tom was proud to serve his country with the PPCLI 2nd Battalion. Later, after trying out a few occupations, Tom found a career in mining. He loved to operate heavy equipment. An avid outdoors man, Tom was happiest tromping through the bush chasing chickens (hunting grouse) or sitting by a stream panning for gold.

Tom was always there with a helping hand when needed, and will be missed. At his request, no formal service will be held. Rather than flowers, a donation to Kamloops Hospice Association or to a charity of choice would be appreciated. Condolences may be sent to the family at
