Michael Reno

May 6, 1930 ~ February 27, 2022 (age 91)



It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Michael Reno on February 27, 2022 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB.  He was blessed with 91 years.

   Mike was born on May 6, 1930 in Ethelbert, MB.  He matured into an intelligent, kind-hearted young man who also possessed a strong work ethic and determined character.  These, and his many other wonderful attributes, won the heart of Irene Glover, and the happy couple married on October 31, 1955.  Over their sixty-seven-year marriage he proved to be a loving husband and father, a capable provider, and an insightful mentor.

   Over the years, Mike engaged in a wide variety of hobbies and activities.  He enjoyed hunting, fishing, camping, gardening and leatherworking.  In addition to being a very talented musician who played the accordion, piano, guitar and fiddle, Mike’s meticulous, artistic nature was also evident through his beautiful drawings and paintings, cake decorating, and lovely handmade crafts and cards.  He also knew how to keep an audience enthralled with his story telling.  Mike had a quiet, reserved personality, but he was outgoing when it came to helping his family and friends.  He was loved dearly and will be missed by many, but he will never be forgotten.

   Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life is his loving and devoted wife of sixty-seven years, Irene Reno of Blairmore, AB; his children, Steven Reno of Calgary, AB, Michael (Bernadine) Reno of Red Deer, AB, Mark (Ladine) Reno of Bellevue, AB and Kathy (Kevin Schmunk) Reno of Bergen, AB; his grandchildren, Stephanie, Anthony , Lori (Joshua), Gary (Roxanne), Eric (Miranda), Amy (JD) and Evan (Amber); his great-grandchildren, Christopher, Jasper, Eric, Ryder, Landon, Courtney, Ben and new addition, Clark; as well as his extended family and friends.

   He was predeceased by his mother, Frances and step-father, Stephan Reno; his parents-in-law, Mary and Matthew Glover; and his infant brother, William Reno.

   Mike’s family would like to thank Dr. Bell and the nurses and care providers at the Crowsnest Pass Continuing Care Centre for the kindness and care they provided over the years.  They would also like to thank Fantin’s Funeral Chapel for their compassion and guidance.

   A private family Memorial Service will be held.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Crowsnest Pass SPCA (PO Box 725, Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0).  Condolences may be registered at

Fantin’s Funeral Chapel entrusted with the arrangements. (403) 562-8555
