Obituary – Linten Rennick

Linten Rennick, at the age of 85 passed peacefully at home surrounded by loved ones on December 19, 2020. He was a humble, kind and generous soul with a witty sense of humour and a heart of gold who adored his family.

Born in Inkerman Station in 1935 to parents Clive Rennick and Lorna Ellis, he grew up in the Winchester area until he married his lifelong love of 63 years Anna (Helmer) in 1958. They lived in Ingleside, Ottawa, Stittsville, Richmond, Finch, and Luneburg before settling in Osnabruck Centre in the big red brick house at the end of County Rd 18 where they raised their six children. He started working on the Seaway in the 1950’s and pursued various other occupations including the operation of Lintannas Restaurant with his wife Anna in Osnabruck Centre (famous for their fries and pies). As a pass time, he was a car enthusiast with a passion for “wheeling and dealing” and he immensely enjoyed reminiscing. Ending his working career, he retired from Trans Canada Pipeline in 2000.
