RYNOSKI, Stephen Randall Patrick "Reno": It is with much sadness and a heavy heart that we inform you that Steve Rynoski (Reno) as he was known to many, passed away on April 3rd 2016 in his apartment in Peachland, BC. Steve was an awesome son, brother, uncle and friend to many, both in the Okanagan and in California, where he lived for many years. He was born in Victoria, BC on Feb 11th, 1951 and moved with his family to Penticton in his early teens where he quickly began making many friends. That is where Steve started his music career that would take him from Penticton to Spokane, then on to Seattle and Los Angeles. He was an extremely likeable guy and will be deeply missed. He is survived by his Mother Patricia Rynoski of West Kelowna, Brother Mike (Cathy) Reno, Nephew Alex Reno of Vancouver and Nieces Courtney and Denise of Kennewick, Washington. He leaves behind many good friends too long to list. A celebration of life for Steve will be held Sunday, May 1st, 2016 at the Edgewater Inn and Grill, 5830 Beach Avenue in Peachland, BC starting at 3:30pm. In lieu of flowers, please make a generous donation to the West Kelowna Food Bank. Steve's ashes will be buried in the family plot in OK Falls, BC on May 2nd, 2016 at 2:00 pm for those who would like to attend. Condolences may be left for the family by visiting

I knew Steve so many years ago at PenHi. He was always positive, amusing and always had a smile. It is with sadness that I’ve learned of his passing so late. May his happy ways be his legacy. Ciao baby.

Shared some great times playing music with Steve in the early 70's when I invited him to move to Spokane to play with the group Good Morning, that I was playing with at the time. Great singer, frontman and real friend that I'm glad to have known in my lifetime. Always ready with a smile and open hand if you were down. One of a kind.

How very sad to hear the news of Steve's passing. Steve, you will be remembered as a wonderful free spirit in the music scene as we grew up in Penticton in the 60's, always with a big smile. There is a rock & roll heaven my friend, so enjoy the company... you will be missed.

Steve was a bright light of my highschool days and a meetup in the summer of 83 was brilliant, farewell lively soul.
