RENAUD, Albert "Ab"
(1948 Olympic Gold Medalist,
Men's Ice Hockey)
Peacefully, in hospital on Wednesday, December 19, 2012 at the age of 92 years. Loving husband of Lorraine (nee Lefebvre). He will also be fondly remembered by Lorraine's children, Robert, Ann, Jim, and Marie and their families. Survived by his sister Madeleine Baillargeon (Guy), nephews and niece; Larry Laliberte, Clem Laliberte, Helene Francis, John Renaud, Robert Renaud, Michael Renaud, Richard Renaud, Peter Renaud and Paul Renaud. Predeceased by sister Marguerite and brothers Joe and Hector. Ab proudly represented his country on many levels; he was a WWII Veteran serving overseas, was a team member of the RCAF Flyers Men's Ice Hockey Team in the 1948 Winter Olympics in St. Moritz, winning Gold, and had a successful career, lasting over 35 years, as a Civil Servant with the Federal Government of Canada. A true sportsman, he was also an avid golfer and a long-time member of the Rivermead Golf Club. Though there were many accomplishments and achievements in his life, one of Ab's proudest moments came when he was inducted into the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame in 2008. A true countryman, sportsman and gentleman he will be missed by many. Visitation and funeral service times to be announced at a later date. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Tubman Funeral Homes.
