Harold James MacKenzie, age 58 of Canaan, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on April 28, 2023, in the Valley Hospice, Kentville. He was the son of the late Harold and Dorothy (Gates) MacKenzie.

When not at the cottage, Harold spent time with the ATV Club, where he made many valued friendships.

Harold is survived by his wife, Marietius “Joyce” MacKenzie; sons, Justin (Carrie) MacKenzie; Jordan (Steven) Planzer; grandchildren, Jade MacKenzie, Finn Planzer, and Ernan Planzer.

In addition to his parents, Harold was predeceased by sisters, Carol Anne and Darlene.
