In loving memory ~

It is with great sadness that the family of Randy Rensby announces his sudden passing on Friday, February 2, 2024, at the age of 67.

The youngest of five children, Randy was born and raised in Burns Lake, BC. His love of cars started at an early age, working part time jobs during high school to save up for his first car.

After graduation, he put in millions of miles during his thirty-year career as a professional truck driver, travelling BC, Alberta, Yukon and Northwest Territories.

In 1983, Randy married Darlene Krakana and they started their family in Palling, raising their children Amie and Jordan. In the summer, they enjoyed spending many weekends at the family lakeside cabin in Francois Lake and having backyard wiener roasts.

In 2002, Randy met the love of his life, Kristi McCrindle, and they married in 2004. They were active in the car clubs, creating Burns Lake Classic Cars and travelling to many car shows including Dawson Creek, Cache Creek and Red Deer. Randy supported Kristi in her horse ventures and together they made multiple trips to Alberta for clinics and shows, even travelling as far east as Brandon, MB. He was always ready for the next driving adventure!

Randy's biggest passion was building his 1969 Nova and 1966 Chevelle from the ground up. At the end of 2019, they moved to Campbell River in search of shorter winters and a longer car season. Randy ended up driving the school bus as a semi-retirement job, enjoying his summers off with camping, car shows, kayaking, and other activities.

Randy will be lovingly remembered by his wife of 19 years, Kristi; children, Amie (Justin) and Jordan (Marlise); grandchildren, Kane, Tyson, Asher, Raina, and Frankie; siblings: Mona (John), Kim (Don), Ken (Bets), and sister-in-law, Vicky; and numerous other family members and friends. He was predeceased by his brother, Dan; and his parents: Ken and Susanne.

An Open House will be held on Saturday, February 17th from 11 am - 2 pm at the Eagles Hall in Campbell River, BC. A private family service will take place later this year.
