Passed away peacefully on Monday June 25, 2018 at the age of 99. Beloved husband of the late Berta. Cherished father of Kaisa (Sandy) of Wilmot, New Hampshire and Annemarie Keiko (Gerry) of Oakville. Much loved Mofa of Jonathan (Gioia), Christopher (Kristen), Lisa (David), Kelly (Brandon) and Maria (Keegan) and Gammel Morfar to Tillie, Liv, Lexie, Lukas, Ava, Liam and Evelyn. Kjell lived a full life that began in Ljungaverk, Sweden. He started his career with Sandvik in 1943 and with whom he stayed until he retired in 1980. His time at Sandvik included the opportunity to work in Japan. He spoke often about those years and expressed repeatedly how much they enjoyed them. In 1962 he was offered a transfer to Sandvik Canada which he happily accepted. He and Berta never regretted this move – they became Canadian citizens and lived a good life in Montreal and Oakville from then on. His passing has left a huge void in our family but we are so grateful to have had him in our lives for so long. He made it into his 100th year! He had not only quantity of life but also quality of life. Only 7 months ago he went on a Panama Canal cruise! Thank you to Dr. Roland Amolins and the wonderful staff on 3S and 3N of the Oakville Hospital for the care he received. A memorial service will be held in the future. In lieu of flowers donations to the Swedish Lutheran Church in Toronto or the Salvation Army would be appreciated.
Our most sincere sympathies to the family and friends of Kjell Vidar Tage Renstrom May 07 1919 June 25 2018.source
