Leonel J.T. Renaud age 88 passed away peacefully on Wednesday, Jan 20th, 2016 at Dunrovin Hospice in Quesnel after a short battle with lung cancer.
Leo was born April 22, 1927 in Hearst, Ontario to Arthur and Aurore (Dupuis) Renaud. He was the eldest of 16 children.
He moved to Quesnel in the early 1950’s where he married and had 4 children. He owned and operated the We Fix It All Shop in Quesnel for over 30 years. He believed that fixing and repairing was better than throwing things away and recycled long before it became popular to do so. Leo always tried to help people in need and was a kind and generous man.
After retirement he loved to play poker at the local casino and to watch poker tournaments and Wheel of Fortune on TV.
Leo is predeceased by his parents, brothers – Fernand, Elois, Pat, sister – Rose-Aimee, son Terry, grandson Craig, granddaughter Amber, and son-in-law Calvin.
He is survived by his son Arthur, daughters Yvonne and Diana (Leigh), grandchildren – Crystal (Paul), Cory (Susan), Kerry (Brian), Kyle (Calise), Adrienne and Dustin, great grandchildren – Andrew, Logan, Casandra, Alexis and Brooke, plus 6 brothers; 5 sisters, uncles and aunts, and many nieces, nephews and cousins.
A memorial for Leo to be held in Quesnel will be announced at a later date.
