Obituary of Frederick Alexander Rhyno

RHYNO Frederick Alexander “Sandy” started his engine on November 13th 1967 and reached the finish line on his final pass on November 15th 2021. His life was an inspiration to his family and friends and anyone who was lucky enough to know him. Despite all odds, his determination, courage and strength allowed him to overcome adversity time and time again. Sandy’s love for his family was displayed through the compassionate and caring life lessons that he instilled in us all. He taught us by example that there is no battle that you cannot overcome with the love and support of your family and friends. His legacy will continue through his soulmate, his rock Janice - the one who fought every battle tirelessly by his side. His sons Jeff (Tonja), Brandon (Angela) who will instill the family values in his grandchildren Lyla and Alex. His gentle spirit will live on in his furry pal Jake. He acquired his strength and determination from his parents Fred (Brenda Wood) and Diane (Nev Layton). The importance of family life began in his early years with his siblings Donna MacGillivray (Steven), Andrew (Janah), and Ruthie. Sandy’s family expanded to include father- in- law Bob MacLean (Muriel Kennedy), sister in law Lori (MacLean) Atwater (James Boutilier) and brother- in- law Robbie MacLean (Sandi) as well as several aunts and uncles, nieces (Staci, Emma Lee, Karlee, Addison, Avery) and nephews (Steven, Tyler, Dawson, Liam, Dylan). Sandy gained his wings and joined his beloved mother- in- law Molly MacLean, as well as his grandmothers Dorothy MacLeod and Elaine Rhyno. Sandy enjoyed and was admired widely for his autobody skills and car restorations. He would spend countless hours meticulously creating masterpieces at “The Shop” alongside his best friend Dougie MacLeod. He was especially proud of his first project, the shiny ‘66 Chevelle. Sandy was one that touched the lives of many people along his journey and now he is free to enjoy his sunny day. Sincere appreciation and thanks for the love and care provided to Sandy by Dr. Aaron Smith, Dr. Eric Joy, Dr. Ian McGilvray, Dr. Anne Kwasnik, Dr. Gerry Farrell, Dr. Robert Horton, Debbie Williams and the palliative care team, Dr. Alwin Jeyakumar, Dr. Pat Craig, and the chemo pit crew.
