In loving memory of Ian William Mackenzie who sadly passed away on 11th December 2020.

Ian was married to Vivienne for 49 years, and had three children, Pauline, Peter and Richard. He was granddad to Elizabeth.

Ian worked as a civil servant before joining the British Transport Police, working in Lowestoft and then moving to Southend to be a Sergeant. Ian moved to Liverpool Street where he worked until he was 50.
Ian then was a traffic warden in Southend for a number of years.
His last job was as a researcher for the Office of National Statistics.

Ian loved life and being as active as possible.
His love of cycling started when he got a paper round to lose weight. He was a regular cyclist, and fitted in a ride whenever he could. He was a lifetime CTC member, and a member of Viking Cycling club 1968 - 1973 then joined Lowestoft Wheelers from 1973 to 1984, then after moving back to Essex he joined Southend Wheelers.

He particularly enjoyed the longer rides, regularly competing in 100 mile races, or his 12 hour endurance races.
Ian regularly competed on his racing tricycle and was an active member of the Tricycle Association. His racing included the tricycle World championships in Belgium, as well as racing in Hyde Park in London.
He was an active member of the Veteran Time Trial Association (VTTA) in East Anglia, organising the annual meal for a number of years.

Ian cycled from Lands End to John O'Groats in 2011, raising money for Prostate Cancer.
In 2018 just before his 72nd Birthday Ian cycled from St Davids to Lowestoft (West to East) over 4 days, despite having been hit by a car, and having his first bike written off.
Ian also ran, doing parkrun in the non bike-racing season at Hockley Woods and completed a few marathons, completing the London Marathon in 2000 in just over 3 1/2 hours.

After retiring Ian took on new challenges.
Ian graduated in 2015 with a 2:2 in Law from the Open University after 5 years of hard work and dedication.
Ian went on a number of interesting holidays, including the Inca Trail, Everest Base camp, trekked up Kilimanjaro, and in 2019 going to the Tiger's Nest Monastery in Bhutan.

Ian loved steam trains, visiting many lines in the UK, and fulfilled a boyhood dream of driving a steam engine.

I am sorry that, due to circumstances, there was not really the opportunity to properly offer condolences today.

RIP Uncle Ian, who certainly lived his life to the fullest, doing what he loved.
