Ed will be greatly missed. The St. Augustine yard will not be the same with out his smiling face, jokes and happy go lucky attitude. Rest in Peace our friend.
Ed was a wonderful friend to my husband Jim and I. When Jim passed away unexpectedly in 2018, Ed would call me every couple of weeks to make sure I was ok. Ed you will be greatly missed. Love you

We first met Ed 3 years ago when we came to Landstar. He was refreshingly kind and polite in an industry that's not known for being so. His willingness to share his mechanical knowledge was legendary among us who frequented the St Augustine yard. Mostly, we are going to miss his smile & sense of humor. Rest in peace good sir.
Edward Hugh McKenzie
Edward “Ed” H. McKenzie, 72, of Yulee passed away Saturday, September 4, 2021 at Baptist Medical Center, Nassau.
He was born in Ocala, FL and was a son of the late Eddie and Ann La Plant McKenzie.
Mr. McKenzie and his family moved to Yulee over 40 years ago. He was still active. He worked as an inspector and mechanic for Equipment Services/Landstar. Mr. McKenzie dearly loved fishing and camping. He always had a sense of humor about his fishing. He often said, “the reason they call it fishing is because you’re not always catching”.
He was a veteran of the U. S. Army who served in combat in Vietnam. He was always proud of his service and loved his country. He will be remembered for his smile, his good advice and his willingness to help anyone whenever he could. Mr. McKenzie was of the Baptist faith. He dearly loved his family, especially his children and grandchildren.
In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by his wife, Mary McKenzie in 2016 as well as 4 brothers and sisters, Leonard, Inez, Mary, Scotty and James.
He leaves behind his children, Troy (Cathy) McKenzie, Edward (Becky) McKenzie and Mary (Freddy) Wilson, all of Yulee; his sisters and brother, Ann, Lillian and David; his grandchildren, Troy, Jr., Scotty, Lora, Chandler, Kailey, Josiah, Isaiah and Jeremiah; one great-grandchild, Asher and an extended family of nieces, nephews and many close friends.
Funeral services, with military honors, will be held Thursday, September 9, 2021 at 4:00 PM in the Burgess Chapel of Oxley-Heard Funeral Directors with Pastor John Kasper of Blackrock Baptist Church officiating. The family will receive friends beginning at 3:00 PM.
He will be laid to rest at Hughes Cemetery at a later date.
