By chance looked up this record http://www.cwgc.org/find-war-dead/casualty/81744/OWEN, IORWERTH RICHARD following a chat with the present hosts at the White Horse Inn.

This angle shows his name on the panel and his parents' home. 

I understand that Canadian records are complete. Can someone say what RTE denotes in rank/job column please?

I would suggest that his rank is Pte. and a pen/pencil mark looks like the P changed to R, as far as I know there is no Canadian rank of RTE

It looks like it is a typo and should read Pte.

I don't think the CEF service records have got as far as "O" yet, but his Circumstances of Death card is here.

Edit: I assume you are referring to the Grave Registratiion Report amongst the CWGC documents, where RTE occurs?

Where is this memorial?

Llanfair Caereinion?

Llanfair DC, Ruthin. Denbighshire. Some other interesting, to me, tales relating to other names on the panels.
