VETERAN local journalist Charles McKenzie died suddenly yesterday.
He was 72.

He was among local journalists honoured recently by the Guyana Press Association.

Mack or ‘Bracey’ as he was also well-known by colleagues, employed by the National Communications Network (NCN), was on duty at the Supreme Court when he collapsed.

He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC), but was pronounced dead on arrival. He is believed to have suffered a hypertension attack.

Mack was an affable individual and respected by both the young and the not so young members of his profession.

An endearing quality was his eagerness and willingness to help particularly young reporters, always ready with his trademark broad smile.

He had been in the journalistic field for more than 50 years, 40 of which were reporting for Radio Demerara before it became the Guyana Broadcasting Corporation and then NCN.

He was employed on contract at NCN at the time of his demise.

He also served as a reporter at the Daily Chronicle in his early days when the workers in journalism operated as one family irrespective of which media they represented.

McKenzie, who was married 43 years ago, is survived by his wife, Patricia, 62, four children -- two boys and two girls -- and seven grandchildren. One of the daughters is abroad.

The funeral of the late Charles McKenzie will be announced later. (GEORGE BARCLAY)
