Kenneth Mackenzie
1932 – 2020

After a short 3 week stay at Lady Minto Hospital, Salt Spring Island B.C., Ken passed peacefully on Sept. 18, 2020. Born September 30, 1932 in Montreal, Quebec to parents John and Elizabeth Mackenzie, Ken was a loving husband, father, and grandfather, energetically engaged in life.

Ken worked tirelessly supporting his family as a CN Railwayman (Montreal, 1952-1986). Ken demonstrated unwavering devotion to his wife of 63 years, the late Peggy Mackenzie (Ramsay), and his three sons: Doug, Keith (June), Donald (Luis), was the loving grandfather of Chanelle and Victoria and Godfather to Dale Blenkhorn. Predeceased by his siblings: Jack (Pat), Ronny (Claire), David (Barbra).

Ken was a founding member of Maplewood Presbyterian Church, Chateauguay Quebec, soccer coach, Past President CN Pensioners Association, Kelowna. He enjoyed gardening, playing golf, bowling, ballroom dancing, and most of all, telling stories. His last three years, as a widower, Ken lived mostly independently, supported by family and his kind supportive carer Kelly, he still had many good adventures and somehow even more stories to share.

Sadly, there can be no service or public celebration of his life at this time. The family will gather, remember and give thanks over Thanksgiving weekend on Salt Spring Island, B.C., his final home.
