Malcolm had many other cousins, friends, colleagues, and teammates from the Sportsmen Cricket Club of Edmonton who will miss his quick humour, generosity and compassionate spirit.

Malcolm was predeceased by his parents, Laureston and Beryl McKenzie of St. Michael, Barbados; and grandmother Eleanor Hall and uncle Clifford Hall, of St. James, Barbados.

Originally from St. James, Barbados, Malcolm began his nursing career in England before moving to Canada in 1973. He earned his Bachelor of Science in Nursing from the University of Alberta in 1983, and his Masters of Science in Administration (Health Services Administration) from Central Michigan University in 1993. Malcolm made immeasurable contributions to psychiatric and rehabilitative health care through his work at Alberta Hospital Ponoka, and Riverview Health Centre in Winnipeg.

  20. I heard earlier today of Malcolm’s passing. Please allow me to convey my sincerest condolences to his family, friends and fellow colleagues. I had the pleasure of meeting and working alongside Malcolm on Riverview Health Centre’s management team. A wonderful, gentle man who ‘set the bar high’ in so many ways and yet with a humility (and wonderfully mischievious sense of humour) that always put others before himself; a true servant to those fortunate enough to have known him. Malcolm…I’m so sorry we didn’t have that coffee meeting after we both retired…someday!

His leadership ,kindness & caring touched so many. I enjoyed his great sense of humour; mischievous nature and most of all his guidance. I was blessed to meet and know Malcolm. Rest In Peace my friend.
