It is with heavy hearts that the family of Reno Anthony Favrin announce his peaceful passing at the Guelph General Hospital on April 30, 2020 at the age of 90 following a brief illness. Pre-deceased by his wife Christina (Sieminowski, 1978) and his brother Bruno (2012). Cherished father of Gary (Jacquie), Michael (Sheila) and Stephen (Stacy), and brother-in-law to Sophie (Peter) Czerkaski and the late Adolph (Carolyn) Sieminowski. Loving grandfather to John (Krystalia) and Trent and great-grandfather to William and Andrew.

Reno was a life long Guelphite, born to the late Beniamino and Maria (Zambusi) Favrin. He lived his entire life within two city blocks, returning to his family home (built by his father) in his later years where he lived independently until his recent admission to hospital. He was a devout parishioner at the Basilica of Our Lady Immaculate since his youth.

Reno had a strong work ethic and was a skilled tradesman. Early in his working life he was employed on construction jobs at the Toronto Pearson Airport and the University of Guelph. For many years he ran a business as a general contractor for commercial and residential renovations and then worked as a Facilities Supervisor for the Federal government, overseeing the maintenance of post offices and other government buildings in the Guelph/Waterloo region. Reno worked there until his retirement in 1998.

The family would like to extend our thanks to the staff at Guelph General Hospital for their kind and compassionate care during these difficult times. A private interment will be held at Marymount Cemetery. Reno’s family would appreciate memorial donations to be made to Covenant House (, a provider of shelter, food and crisis services to homeless and at-risk youth, of which Reno was a long-time supporter.

Reno was a devoted family man and a loving father to his three sons. He always showed such kindness and care towards me, my husband and our children. He will be remembered by us for his generosity of spirit and loving heart.

Reno was our neighbour and lived behind us. He always told great stories of his years of contracting which we always enjoyed and always offered advice if asked. He even came to the back fence to tell us our new dog had jumped over which was no problem even when he jumped over a second time. We were saddened when he moved back to the old homestead a few years ago but it's what he wanted to do. Reno did a lot of work in our house when Gene Hillson lived here too. We will miss seeing and talking to Reno. He always offered a smile when he saw us. Our condolences to you and your Family through this difficult time. Colin and Laurie Vos. Nottingham St.
