Mr. Boyd Harrison McKenzie, 55, of Graham passed away on Thursday, March 9th, 2023, at Moses Cone Hospital in Greensboro. He was on the kidney transplant registry but had been recently having other medical issues on top of that. His passing was sudden and unexpected and he will be missed by everyone that knew him and loved him. He was preceded in death by his parents, Dalton McKenzie and Linda Sumner.
Boyd was known by most people in his community because everyone knew to call him when they had an issue with their lawn equipment. He always said he could fix anything and if he got stumped by something there was always a YouTube video to help him out. His favorite thing to say was “If you need me, I’ll call you.” He loved to fish, ride his motorcycle, cook delicious food, go to the beach, and play on the pool league with his many friends.
Boyd McKenzie is survived by his daughter, Hunter McKenzie and his longtime girlfriend (wife) of eighteen years, Dee Lassiter. He loved them with everything he had and made sure that they had everything that they needed. He always put Hunter and Dee first. His is survived by his sister Nancy Humble and two nieces, Heather Booth and Stacey Thomas. He has a stepson, Joshua Lassiter, and a stepdaughter Nikki Lineberry with his girlfriend, Dee Lassiter, and he has six grand-children. He has a furry child named Piper, who will miss him every day. His nickname for her is monkey-butt.
