Obituary of Robert Donald McKenzie "Rob"
It is with great sadness that our family announces the passing of Rob, at the St. Catharines Hospital on Sunday, June 13, 2021, at the age of 55. Rob was a beloved son of Helen. He will be forever loved and remembered by his wife Dawn, sons Lucas and Bill, granddaughter Ava, brother Brian (Linda) McKenzie, by his nieces, nephews, extended family and friends, especially his best friends Mark, Rick and Roy. He was predeceased by his father Donald McKenzie and sister Sue McKenzie.
Rob was a long time resident of St. Catharines. Throughout the years he worked as roofer, and in his spare time he found joy in cooking and gardening which he was very good as he inherited his green thumb from his father. He was a dedicated Leaf's fan and he always enjoyed cheering them on through the years. Our family has many fond memories of Rob during camping trips up north. He loved listening to music and going for long drives. We are sure that wherever he is now, his music is cranked up and his spirit is enjoying the open roads on his new adventure.
A special thank you to the nurses that took care of Rob while he was in the hospital, for their kindness and support. Arrangements have been entrusted with Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133), and cremation has taken place. A private interment will be held at a later date, and he will be interred at Chapel Hill Cemetery. As an expression of sympathy, memorial donations in memory of Rob may be given to the Ronald McDonald House.
There are no upcoming public services scheduled or the service has occurred in the past.
