Broken wand: Munro MacKenzie

From The Vancouver Sun:
1923 - March 6, 2013

With sadness we announce the passing of Munro MacKenzie: Son, Student, Soldier, Husband, Father, Cousin, Pharmacist, Volunteer, Friend, Mentor. Munro was born in New Westminster BC and grew up in Vancouver. He bravely served his country in World War 2 as part of the Canadian Scottish Regiment, coming home to finish his studies in Pharmacy at UBC and marry his sweetheart. He was the well-liked neighbourhood pharmacist until an armed robbery left him seriously injured in the early '80's. Determined to live life to the fullest, he became a volunteer, working for the Vancouver Aquarium, and Meals on Wheels. He was a Patron at Science World, putting in over 12,000 hours as a volunteer, right up until a week before his passing. In 2007, he was honoured with a Community Achievement Award, in Victoria. He was also a very active member of the Vancouver Magic Circle.
