DAVID KEITH RINELL
DAVID KEITH RINELL 1935 - 2016 Dave Rinell left this world on Saturday, July 16, 2016 at the age of 80 years young. He was born and raised in Astoria, Oregon on Christmas Eve, 1935 to parents Ella (Pierce) and Neil Rinell. After studying forestry at Oregon State University in Corvallis, Oregon, Dave left for Hawaii in 1959 to pursue a career in the construction industry. Soon after moving to Hawaii he would meet the love of his life, Annette Pinsonneault: a newly arrived registered operating room nurse from Saskatchewan, Canada. Dave and Annette married in Honolulu on August 25, 1962. Not long after marrying they moved to Kaneohe, where they raised a family and loved being a part of the community. Dave coached his children's sports, joined the bowling league, and for many years was Santa Claus for St. Ann's church and the Crown Terrace Community Association. Dave and Annette celebrated nearly 54 years of marriage full of love and laughter, and enjoyed a relationship admired by all who know them. During Dave's early career in Hawaii, he worked at Honolulu Wood Treating Co. and Theo H. Davies & Co. In 1979, he struck out on his own and founded Rinell Wood Systems, Inc. where his outgoing personality, integrity, and extensive knowledge of wood products helped the business flourish. Always wanting to promote the construction industry in Hawaii, Dave maintained memberships in the GCA, BIA, CSI, as well as his beloved Hoo-Hoo International. Dave recently retired from the business, handing things over to his daughter and granddaughter in order to spend more time at home and on the links. He was an avid golfer and a member of Mid-Pacific Country Club in Lanikai for over fifty years. You could find him there most Saturday mornings playing with his regular foursome, rain or shine. People who were fortunate enough to know Dave will remember his boisterous voice and huge heart. His presence was always happy and positive, no matter the situation. He had a great sense of humor and loved to tell stories and provide words of advice. He was loved and admired by all who knew him. He is survived by his loving wife Annette Rinell, children Audrey (Donald) Crimmins and David (Jody) Rinell; grandchildren Jason and Jessica Crimmins. And of course cats Bogey, Ginger, and Indy. Celebration of Life to be held at Mid-Pacific Country Club on Saturday, July 30, 2016, at 3:00 PM. In lieu of monetary gifts or flowers, please make a donation to the Salvation Army or a charity of your choice.
