McKenzie was taken to Memorial Hospital here, arriving about 9:45 a.m. but died about 15 minutes later, attendants said. First reports that he had been pinned under the car and drowned were unfounded, Dr. Benedict Skitarelic, medical examiner said. Death was due to a ruptured lung. McKenzie was born here January 5, 1948, a son of William Paul McKenzie and Margaret T. (Flynn) McKenzie. He resided at Fairgo all his life and attended SS.
