MacKenzie, Lloyd Allan

1949-2020

Surrounded by family in his Edmonton home, Lloyd MacKenzie passed away 6 May 2020 after a long illness. He is survived by Patricia McCarthy MacKenzie, his high school sweetheart and wife of 49 years, 2 sons Robert (Cynthia White) and Michael (Avril Laqua), 5 daughters Jenny (Anders Quist), Amy (Curtis Woolf), Sara (Michael Lush), Mary (Gregory Bourne), Emily (Allan Taylor), 24 grandchildren, and his sisters Cheryl Loose and Joyce (Duane Oler), and sister-in-law Wendy (Randall Oler). He is predeceased by parents Ralph and Thelma (Bruce) MacKenzie and by brother Berton (Catherine Everett). Lloyd’s life was a literal journey taking him from New Brunswick, where he was born, to the far west of California, where he served as a missionary for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Bright and ambitious, he followed his career with the government of Canada to British Columbia, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, and ranged all over Alberta from ports of entry on the United States border to the province’s far northern First Nations. By retirement, Lloyd was the CEO of the North Peace Tribal Council, a position he filled with grace, honoured to serve communities he loved. An avid road tripper, Lloyd drove all over Canada and the United States, making memories with family and friends. A talented natural athlete powered by a whole lot of heart, Lloyd’s favourite pastimes included hockey, football, softball, running, and golf. His golfing prowess reached its pinnacle in 2015 when he landed a hole-in-one at Coyote Lakes Golf Club in Surprize, Arizona. Above all these achievements, Lloyd took his greatest satisfaction and joy in his family — immediate, extended, and found family. He was a great man, everyone’s favourite uncle, best boss, cherished spiritual leader, dearest friend, best husband and father ever.

MAC was my missionary companion in Southern California in 1971. We were an awesome pair together. Two Canadians with rival football teams. We visited again when he lived I Lethbridge and reminisced. I’m so saddened to learn of his passing and have lost a friend. My condolences to the family and especially Pat. He proudly showed me her picture when we were in the mission field together.
