Ronald “Ron” McKenzie
1950 ~ 2018
Mr. Ronald “Ron” McKenzie of Warner, beloved husband of Mrs. Joan McKenzie, passed away suddenly on Thursday, February 22, 2018 at the age of 67 years.
Ron was born in Lethbridge, Alberta to parents Dale and Irma McKenzie, and attended Warner School. As a young man, he worked seismic up North in the winters, and would farm with his dad and brothers on the family farm in Warner during the summers; eventually he would come to the farm full time. He farmed with his dad Dale and brother Cam for a number of years and eventually transitioned to farming with just his son Mike. Ron was an active member of the community and was involved in Elks, Warner Curling Club, 4-H, Warner West Water Coop Board, and travelling the world with friends and family.
Ron and Joan were married in 1981. Mike was born in 1982 – he and Ron share the same birthday; and Carmen was born in 1984. He loved farming and truly loved anything and everything he did with his family. Family and friends were his life, the light of his life and his best roll was being a Papa to Jayce, Avery and Blake.
Besides his loving wife Joan, Ron is survived by his son Mike (Kyleen) McKenzie and their daughters Avery Dale and Blake Scarlett; and his daughter Carmen Dawn (Trevor) Antal and their son Jayce Dean.
Also left to mourn are his sister Karen McKenzie, and brothers Jerry (Wilma) McKenzie, Cam (Diane) McKenzie, and Wade McKenzie.
A Memorial Service will be held at 1:00pm on Tuesday, March 6, 2018 at the WARNER CIVIC CENTRE, 508-4 Avenue, Warner, AB, with Pastor Brian Magee officiating.
