Nazareno (Reno) Paul Tanti

March 28, 1931 - April 8, 2021


After celebrating his 90th Birthday, it is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Reno Tanti (known as Nannu to many). Reno leaves us to join his son Jeff (2006) and many loved family and friends. He will be deeply missed & lovingly remembered by his wife of 66 years, Jane; daughter Sylvia (Tom); grandchildren Justin, Bryan, Amanda, Crystal and great-grandson Mateo; brothers Vince and Paul (Malta); and many nieces & nephews.

After moving to Powell River from Malta in 1952, Reno made many friends while working at the mill (in the finishing room), bowling, as a long-time patron of The Inn and A&W, and a dedicated parishioner of the Assumption Church. He loved his wife, family, especially his grandchildren, and the kind people of Powell River. He always reminded us how beautiful Canada was and how lucky he was to call it home. Whether he was playing cards, shopping at the grocery store, or banking at First Credit Union, he always had a story to share and was sure to make you smile. He will be forever in our hearts, thoughts, and prayers.

Special thanks to the amazing doctors & nurses at PRGH and to all the friends & family who have shared their love & support.

So sorry to hear of Reno’s passing. I always enjoyed the chats we had together over the years. A good friend, and a genuinely nice man. Our thoughts are with his family.

I’m so sorry for your loss! I worked with Reno in the finishing room in the early 70’s. He was a hard worker & always had a smile. RIP
