Captain Ian Wellington Moore Mackenzie

Captain Ian Wellington Moore Mackenzie has sailed away into still waters… 28 October 1945 – 29 June 2007 Ocean Falls, BC – Vernon, BC

Precious husband, father, grandfather, brother, friend. Marine Captain (35 years of service with the Marine Branch for the Province of BC), outdoorsman, bird feeder and keeper of the roses.

He will be deeply missed by all those he left behind in his shadow. Our lives and world will never be the same without him.

We will treasure fond memories of a man with a tender heart, cocky sense of humour, infectious laugh, bright eyes and smile. With “Too soon old, too late smart” and “straight goods, no bull” his mottos.
