Donald Stuart Mackenzie
Donald Mackenzie, 50, of Alma passed away suddenly on September 15th, 2021 at his residence.
He was born the son of the late Donald Mackenzie Sr. and Carol Ann Harper of Sussex.
Donnie had a special bond with his grandmother, Almira "Nan" who helped raise him and taught him many things. He spent most of his life in Alma, working as a lobster fisherman. He felt fortunate to be part of the Fundy Mist Crew, having made many memories with Martin, Mitchell, Daniel, and Luke Collins. He later spent some years working at McDonalds in Dieppe where he really enjoyed the experience and the people he met. While living in Riverview, he spent time bowling, attending Wildcats games and tending to his kitties. Donnie had a love for all animals, big or small, building them homes and feeding them too many treats. In later years, he moved back to Alma, and continued doing what he loved most - being by the Bay of Fundy. Donnie was a big kid at heart and enjoyed making crafts, having chip parties, playing with lego, woodworking, and watching Disney movies with his daughter, Emily. She was his pride and joy, and he never missed an excuse to tell her how proud he was of her. He loved Emily with all his heart and she was the light of his world. Donnie had a big personality, he was the type of guy you heard before you saw him, he was loud and his laugh was even louder. He never missed an opportunity to tease or embarrass you if he had the chance. This was his way of showing you he cared. He had a heart of gold and really just wanted to see the people close to him laugh and be happy. He enjoyed many adventures with his good buddy Ziggy, over the years, and boy did they have fun. Even though Donnie had many struggles through his life, he never quit trying to do better for himself, and for his girls; his princess, his butterfly, and his angel. He would want everyone to remember all the good times they shared and to know he would not want tears but to remember funny stories and have a great laugh at some of his antics, as he really made an impression on everyone he met.
He was Stone Cold Steve Austin's biggest fan and this is a quote which reflects Donnie perfectly. " I'm a very serious person, but I don’t take myself very seriously and I would rather laugh all day than argue."-Stone Cold Steve Austin.
He will be deeply missed by his Princess, Emily Mackenzie (Dave); step-son, Josh Roberts; brothers, Eddie Coggar (Heidi), David Robinson, and Michael Robinson. He will also be missed by his niece Chloe.
The family will be visiting with relatives and friends at the Albert County Funeral Home for a time of sharing and to celebrate Donnie's life on Monday, September 20th, 2021 from 6-8pm. Interment will be held at a later date.
