Joshua Thomas MCKENZIE
MCKENZIE, Joshua Thomas Age 22 of Leachville, AR and Murfreesboro, TN. Friday, July 2, 2010 in Murfreesboro. Josh was born August 18, 1987 in Jonesboro to Mitchell Thomas and Sheila Tipton McKenzie. He was a graduate of Henry County High School. He was an electrician but devoted most of his time to his true love, music. He was a songwriter and musician. Josh was an extraordinary guy with a free-spirit, laid back quality in his music and his personality. He breathed through his music and his music through him, letting his audience feel relaxed while they listened and received what the lyrics have to offer. He will be missed by all that knew him, but part of him will live on through his music, may it touch other’s lives as he did when he was among us. He is survived by his loving parents, Mitch and Sheila McKenzie of Leachville; devoted brother, Cody McKenzie of Leachville; maternal grandparents, Marvin and Mildred Tipton of Truman; paternal grandparents, Donald and Elwonda McKenzie of Truman; aunt, Beth and Roger Josam of Jonesboro; uncle, Gentry Tipton of Truman; a host of other relatives and dear friends.
