Delbert Leo McKenzie, 92 of Austin, gained his Angel wings with his daughter by his side on February 25th, 2019. He is preceded in death by his parents James Arthur McKenzie and Emma Lenore (Cottle) McKenzie, his late wife Ellen (Pruett) McKenzie and son Randy McKenzie. Delbert loved life and his family.

Delbert owned and operated McKenzie Refrigeration since 1956, and was a lifelong member of the HVAC (heating, ventilation and cooling) union. Prior to that he served in the US Navy during WWII. Upon returning home from the War, Delbert met and married the love of his life Ellen Pruett.

He was a member of the Old Timers Rodeo Cowboys Association (OTRCA) and loved roping up until he was in his 80's and going to the Rodeo with his children and grandchildren.
