Dannie “Ray” McKinzie June 29, 1950 - Dec. 16, 2010 A love so strong even death would not keep them apart. Ray McKinzie passed away just six days after his beautiful, beloved wife, Brenda. Together they shall rest in the Lord's precious embrace. Ray was a man of honor and made many sacrifices for the love of his children and grandchildren. He was dedicated to his employer, Warrior Roofing in Monroe, and in the months of his illness, his company was dedicated to him. Ray had a passion for racing and spent most of his life building and driving stock cars for fun. He was respected by all on and off the track. Ray leaves his five children, Timmy and Wendy Hunley of Jackson, Tammy and Jerry Rafferzeder of Forsyth, Sharon and Billy Sorrow of Jackson, Teresa and John Bueter of Flovilla, and Ellen and Deven Bowen of Forsyth; brothers, Johnny and Kathy McKenzie of College Park, Dillard and Glynda McKenzie of Austell, Jackie and Sandra McKenzie of Hahira, and Howard and Becky McKenzie of Houston, Texas; sister, Millie and Chuck Roach of Houston, Texas; 16 grandchildren, one great-grandchild, and several nieces and nephews.
