Mr. Morton A. Renfrew January 20, 1939 - December 14, 2008 RENFREW, Morton A. A.I.B. (Scot) 69, Beaver Bank. It is with deep sorrow that the family of Morton Renfrew announce his peaceful passing on December 14, 2008, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Scotland, Morton was the eldest son of Lt. Archibald Renfrew and Mrs. Emily (Sinclair) Renfrew (99 years young). At the age of 15, he followed in his father's footsteps and joined the chartered banking profession. He continued in banking until being called up for national services. He was placed in the military police RAF and stationed in Cypress. In 1960, and back in banking, he met his future wife, May Neilson. They were married in Helensburgh, Scotland, in 1962 and set up home in Balloch, Scotland. In 1965, Morton assisted in the home birth of his bouncing baby son, Douglas. Chief Overseas Branch in Glasgow was Morton's last position with the chartered bank in Scotland, as Morton, May and their baby son decided to make a new life in Canada. A decision they have never regretted. Upon arriving in Hamilton, Ont., Morton joined the Industrial Development Bank and the family became used to being transferred to various interesting posts such as Thunder Bay, Windsor, Stratford and finally to his beloved Maritimes. By this time, the family had grown with the addition of a lovely daughter, Cheryl, and another bouncing baby boy, Kenneth. Morton was a charming and well educated man, with a very well developed sense of humour. He encouraged his children to enjoy Guiding and Scouting, and with his natural ability as a woodsman, he gave many happy years as a Scout troop leader. He played a major role in his wife's involvement with scouting, especially when it came to lighting camp fires. Morton also enjoyed golfing, fishing, and walks with his dogs, Emma and Willie. Left behind to miss this wonderful man is his wife of 46 years, May Christine; daughter, Cheryl (Michael) Craig; sons, Douglas and Kenneth (Danielle); brothers, Norman (Muriel) Renfrew, Alan (Peggy) Renfrew and his adored grandchildren, Morgan, Mathew, Meghan and Tavis. Morton was especially close to Gladys and Kenneth Macintosh; sister-in-law, Patricia (Neilson) Williams, and the late Graham Williams, Alan MacAndlish, Dawson Miller (school friend, Jordon Hill College) and best pal in Beaver Bank, Danny Wallace. Cremation has taken place. A service for the celebration of Morton's life will take place in First Sackville Presbyterian Church on Thursday, December 18 at 2 p.m. under the direction of Rev. Dr. George MacDonald. Reception to follow downstairs in the church hall. By special request, family flowers only. If you wish to make a donation in Morton's name, please consider First Sackville Presbyterian Church, or Second Beaver Bank Scouting Group.
