David Renshaw, M.D.
1930 - 2013, Santa Barbara
David Renshaw, M.D., passed away at his home surrounded by his family on Thursday, October, 31, 2013. David was born in New Rochelle, New York on June 9, 1930, the son of Edward and Lillian Friend Renshaw. David graduated from Kent School in Kent, Connecticut and moved with his family to St. Louis, Missouri in 1950. He graduated from the University of Missouri Medical School in 1960 and moved west to California with his wife, Nancy (nee Rogers). In 1964, after internship and residency, the family moved to Santa Barbara and David established a private practice in Psychiatry.
Next to the love for his family, he loved the practice of medicine, rooting for the San Francisco Giants, playing Monopoly with his grandchildren, and relaxing on the beaches of Kauai. His roses were always the talk of the neighborhood.
He is survived by his wife of 56 years, Nancy, daughters Susan and husband Jack Dawson, and Jack's son, Peter of Santa Barbara and Katharine and Carman McKee and their children, Connor and Ceanna of Red Deer, Alberta. A private celebration of his life will be held at a later date.
