Obituary for Bertrand Renzetti

Renzetti, Bert
(age 50)
Of Fairfax, VA died on August 29, 2018 at Fairfax Hospital. Beloved son of the late Bertrand and Adriana Renzetti; half-brother of Jeanne Winstead (Benny) and nephew of Joan Durant. He is also survived by many cousins and his friend and caregiver, Ato Olise-Aikins.
Born December 1, 1967, in Santiago, Chile, Bertrand Andres Renzetti was a happy, bright, inquisitive, mischievous, active little boy. His father had a distinguished career in exploration geology and moved the family between Santiago, Chile; New York City; Tucson, Arizona; Mendoza, Argentina; and other countries while Bert was growing up. At the age of thirteen Bert contracted an illness that left him partially blind and with other life-long health issues. Eventually forced to a wheel-chair, Bert remained an unstoppable force. His disposition and outlook were always cheerful; he loved God devoutly; and he lived life vigorously, resolutely, and tenaciously. At age fifteen he started managing his own investment portfolio and took a job delivering newspapers. In 1996 he graduated from the University of Arizona with a degree in Finance. During his undergraduate career, he did summer internships at White Sands Missile Range in New Mexico; the Muscular Dystrophy Association in Tucson, Arizona; Edwards Airforce Base in California; and the David Taylor Research Center in Bethesda, Maryland. In 1997 he proudly accepted a position serving his country with the CIA and moved to McLean, Virginia where he had a successful career for 13 years until health issues forced him to retire. Bert loved God, his country, his family, his friends, his job, investing, and fly-fishing, even to the point of making his own flies.
