RYNARD, Brent  -  It is with deep sorrow that the family of M. Brent Rynard announce that he has joined his Lord and Saviour.

Brent passed away on Friday, October 14, 2022 after a courageous battle with an autoimmune disease in his 72nd year.  

Brent was born on June 29, 1951 at Toronto General Hospital, the son of Mervin and Elva Rynard.

Brent loved growing up on the family farm located along the Zephyr Road.

He learned at a young age to run the farm alongside his father and brother Wayne. Cherished by his wife Cathy.  Loving father of Bill (Caitlin) of Sandford and Jennifer (Sean) of Leaskdale.

Beloved Papa to Cole, Alanna, Catherine and Daniel. Dear brother to Wayne (Karen) and nieces Carol (Tim), Wendy (Alan) and Laura (David). Dear brother-in-law to Peggy (the late Bill), nephew the late Jeff (Patti) and niece Michelle.

He will be greatly missed by many family, friends and the farming community.

The heart of his family, Brent was a kind-hearted, humble and hardworking man.

He loved farming, restoring classic cars and tractors, making maple syrup, curling and spending time with family.

While farming part-time, Brent also founded Trillium Measurement and Control, a small business that served the needs of the process control and flow measurement industry throughout Canada.

Many thanks to the staff and nurses at Toronto General Hospital for their tender care. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made towards kidney transplant and research through the University Health Network Foundation.

Brent received a kidney transplant in 2014 (donated by daughter-in-law Caitlin) that helped him to embrace life to its fullest. Please consider registering to give the gift of life.

A funeral service will be held at St. Andrew’s-Chalmers Presbyterian Church, 40 Toronto Street South, Uxbridge on Saturday, October 22,2022 at 11a.m. with visitation starting at 10a.m. Immediately following the service a reception will be held.
