Alan Scott McKenzie
August 28, 1976 – July 7, 2024

It is with broken hearts we announce the passing of Alan Scott McKenzie on July 7, 2024 at the too young age of 47.

He was predeceased by his parents Agnes and Bryan McKenzie.

Keeping his memory alive are his children Ava and Alexander, former spouse Sarah McKenzie , his sister and brother in law Christina and Donavin Discher and nephews James (Jesslyn) and Anthony (Amanda), great nephew and nieces Jacob, Ellie and Emersyn and lifetime best friends Bryan and Craig and big brother Brad Enns, as well as his cousins in Scotland Jenny and Lynne.

Alan was born in Canada but moved to Scotland at the young age of two. He grew up there until the family emigrated back to Canada in 1984. But his heart and soul always remained there. Anyone who knew Alan was well aware of this. So much so that to be cheeky he wore a shirt with the declaration of Arbroath to meet Sarah’s English family for the first time.

The most important thing in Alan’s life was his children. He lived for bike rides with them, watching Alex play hockey, watching Ava in her acting endeavours and just being with them. They were his world.

Another of Alan’s loves was the band Rush and a highlight of his life was meeting Geddy Lee. His running joke was calling his sister on her birthday (she shared the same birthday as Geddy) and asking her if she knew what day it was to which she would reply “it’s Geddy Lee’s birthday.”

Alan worked for National Energy Equipment as a salesman and loved his job dearly. He loved all of his customers and coworkers and was truly at home there. A huge thank you goes out to them from his family for their compassion and caring of Alan throughout his disease progression.

May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face; the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, may God hold you in the hollow of his hand.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made to the ALS Society of Manitoba or Brummit Feasby House, ALS Society of Manitoba.
