Larry McKenzie, 61, passed away peacefully August 1, 2013 in the comfort of his home surrounded by his loving family.
Mr. McKenzie was born October 16, 1951 to the late James and Shirley McKenzie-Scott in Sikeston, Missouri. He served our country proudly in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War. Larry was a long time employee of Anheuser Busch, retiring after 25 years of dedicated service. After retiring, Larry worked for Inter-Chrome Dental Lab as a driver and assistant. Larry’s greatest joys in life were times spent with his family especially with his grandchildren. He loved to fish, working in his garage, and hanging out with his “boys” “Bear, Jackson and Wally” People who knew Larry, knew he had a heart of gold, always willing to help a neighbor or friend or taking time to donate platelets in honor of his grandson Cameron Hewitt. He will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. He will be deeply missed.
Left to cherish his memory is: his loving wife of 41 years, Dawn McKenzie; son, Brian McKenzie and wife Doris: two daughters, Valerie McKenzie, Megan Hewitt and husband Eric; three grandsons: Matthew McKenzie, Michael Schafer and Myles Hewitt; two step-grandchildren, Joseph and Kaitlin Gonzalez; four brothers, Ronald, Robert, Thomas and Michael McKenzie; and numerous nieces and nephews. Larry is preceded in death by his grandson, Cameron Hewitt.
