I always thought René was indestructible. Sad to hear of his passing. We had a good run at the VRC. He could always light up a room. A great smile and a devilish good nature. So many good memories. My thoughts are are with you, Charmaine, your daughters and extended family. RIP buddy.

We have many happy memories of René's generous and bountiful hospitality - our visits to Vancouver were never complete without dinner at 11045-79A Avenue, Delta.

Mountains of food, lashings of liquid refreshments - René could mix a mean Margarita! He was an outgoing, convivial host.

Edna and I also fondly remember a trip to Campbell River with René and Charmaine - mirth and laughter, dazzling sunsets, and our first taste of Canadian wine - a delightful and unexpected bonus for our taste buds!

Here's to a life well-lived, René. You earned massive brownie points from the man upstairs with your choice of life partner - the lovely, equally gregarious, and charming Charmaine - so very aptly named - and your loving family.

Rest well our friend.
Edna and Brian

Although I knew Rene only from one chapter in his life and that was when he played for the Vancouver Rowing Club rugby side. He left an indelible memory. He hit the Rowing Club like a hurricane with his outgoing, gregarious personality. Both on and off the pitch he was a dynamic individual. He was a well liked, popular guy and one not soon to be forgotten.

Rest in peace Rene.
