He bought cattle for Alberta Western Beef and when the plant shut down, he blood tested cattle for the government. His passion for rodeo started at a young age, he had a room full of saddles (21), trophies, buckles and awards. Lee had one of the first roping arenas (McKenzie Arena) in this area. He owned and operated McKenzie Enterprises which was a reclamation and fencing business. In the spring of 2013, Lee had a severe brain injury, thus resulting to have to live at the Riverview Care Center. Here is where a new family was created, the care that was given to him was more than ever imagined, thanks to you all. Special thanks to his doctor of many years, Dr. Booyens.

Our Dad Fred worked with Lee at the Health of Animals Department and team roped in the same circuit. Stories that Dad would share about his work day with Lee spoke to the fun he brought to this not always fun job of blood testing cattle!
His smile could certainly light up a room!
Judy, please accept our deepest sympathies at the loss of your Cowboy Lee.

Warmly,
Jolene and Mavis (Lorentzon)
