Obituary

George W. McKenzie III passed away Sunday, July 5th, 2020, after a long battle with cancer.  He was born in Monroe, NC and raised in Newport News, Virginia.  Six years ago he moved to Summerfield, FL. and loved fishing bowling, cards, traveling and friends.  George is joking and laughing in Heaven with the Angels. His biggest joy was making people happy.  He loved God, his family, friends and his dog Tucker (Poopie Dog).  He was proud to be an American and served four years in the Air Force.  After the Air Force he worked as an Engineer.  He is survived by his beloved wife Alice and enjoyed 18 years of marriage.  His immediate family includes his brother Doug McKenzie, loving wife Susan (Monterey, Ca), niece Laura McKenzie (Brooklyn, NY); three daughters, Jodie (Jim) Bishop of Darien, CT, Susan McKenzie of Wilmington, NC. Linda (Wes) Hendley of Charlotte, NC; stepsons, Mark (Nadine) McQueenie of Louisville, KY and Ryan McQueenie of Charlotte, NC; grandchildren, Kristyn, Brooke and Eli Bacot, Michael Hendley and Forrest Bishop; step grandchildren, Lara and Lachlan McQueenie.   A formal military service with honors will take place at Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell, FL on July 24, 2020 at 2:30 PM.  A Celebration of Life will be held at Spruce Creek South Community Center at 12 pm on July 25, 2020.  Due to COVID-19 plans for a Celebration of Life in Charlotte, NC will be delayed and held at  a future date.  In lieu of flowers please consider a donation to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

    Goodbye for now brother George. You carried a good heart through life and finally found peace and happiness in your faith and in your marriage to Alice. I remember your work ethic and especially your never failing sense of humor. You are, and will be, missed.

    George was always a delight to be around! Lighthearted and kind. His gentle spirit and special smile will be missed. Tucker brought out a spark in George and it was so fun to see him bring Tucker on his official business at the community center ;) Thinking of you and family and knowing that your faith in our Loving God will carry you through times of grief. VIRTUAL HUGS!
