John William Mackenzie – Sept 5, 1927 – Aug 30, 2017
It is with profound sadness the family of John (Jack) Mackenzie announces his passing on Aug 30,2017. He passed peacefully at home in the comfort of his favorite chair.
Leaving to mourn his passing is his wife Patricia of 68 years, his daughter Brenda (Gary), sons Scott (Amanda), Russ (Karen) & six grandchildren, eight great grandchildren & many, many more friends & family. Jack was predeceased by his mother & father, Ross & Peggy Mackenzie.
A curiosity of how things were built was the catalyst for Jack to start Mackenzie Builders. Under his own company, he built many houses & apartment buildings as well as all of the homes his family lived in.
Later in his career, he worked at Solar Construction which developed communities north of the 60th parallel.
His first attempt at retirement lead Jack & Pat to Parksville where he continued his career for several more years until he permanently retired.
Jacks involvement with various organizations throughout his life blessed him with a vast circle of friends in which he was very grateful for. He dedicated many hours to Citizens on Patrol, an organization he was passionate about.
The family would like to express their thanks to the circle of family & friends that supported Mom & Dad throughout his journey. Special appreciation to Dr Noble & Dr Juralowicz.
