Rodney A. McKenzie

Rodney A. McKenzie, 56, of Cheyenne, died on Monday, November 16, 2020 in Cheyenne.

He was born on March 31, 1964 in Cheyenne.

Rodney was a carpenter by trade, and a man who loved to have a good time. He loved to fish and you could find him at the lake sitting in his chair whenever he had the opportunity. Rod was an avid Denver Broncos and NASCAR fan, and enjoyed playing 9-ball pool and was in a league in town. If he wasn’t at the lake, you could find him enjoying the company and laughs of his friends down at a local watering hole. He was known as a jokester among family and friends, he loved making people laugh. His laugh was contagious, and his presence brought genuine joy to any situation.
