Obituary for Dave Renaud

Passed away peacefully with family by his side on February 25, 2024 at the age of 50.

Loving husband of Hannah for 26 years and proud Dad of Ryan. Cherished son of Raymond and the late Joyce Renaud. Also loved by his 2nd mom, Jill Renaud and her family. Dear brother of Jeff (Patti) Renaud and Mike (Laureen) Renaud. Son-in-law of Robin and the late Susan Paulton (who was surely waiting for him with a freshly baked fruit cake). Brother-in-law of Christian (Christie) Paulton, and Bonnie (Tim) Bensette. Awesome uncle to Brad, Nick, Michael, Nora, Harry, Kate, Daphne, and Elijah. He will also be missed by many aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, co-workers and his beloved kitties Timbit and MiniBit.

Dave worked as a camera operator, editor and producer for CTV, CBC and Cogeco for 25 years, most recently producer at YourTV for the Windsor Spitfires. The North Country was his happy place, growing up in the camp ground in Port Carling on Lake Muskoka to the last 16 years at Lakes End in Magnetawan. He was an avid water skier since the age of 8 and has spent the last several years teaching Ryan his craft.

In honour of Dave and his love for cats donations made to the Windsor Essex County Humane Society would be greatly appreciated by his family.

Cremation has taken place. Memorial visiting will be held at Families First Funeral Home in South Windsor on Thursday, February 29, 2024 from 2 – 5 and 6:30 – 9 p.m. A private family service will take place at a later date.

Let’s lift a butter tart to Dave as we say goodbye to a man who left us too soon.
