Harvey Allan McKenzie "Milleye" was born in Cumberland House, SK. He passed away on July 26, 2022 at the age of 61 years old. Milleye was raised in Cumberland House. He was the third oldest of nine children born to Louis and Mary McKenzie. Milleye received his education at Charlebois School. He began working for the DNS sawmill at the age of 16. Later he became a seasonal firefighter and often expressed how he loved to go out firefighting. He has always been a hardworking man. Milleye was one of the best hockey players during his younger years. Even though he was a great player, he eventually became a ruthless referee! He enjoyed fishing, playing ball and volunteering in community events. He was often a chaperone for youth trips. He was also a proud football spectator of the CH Islanders, especially when his nephews were playing. Milleye worked at the H & M Gas Bar as a gas jockey and later at the Chief Island Store. Also, for many years, he drove taxi for medical trips or for his regular customers. Milleye loved his family and he was very devastated when he lost his baby girl at the tender age of fifteen. He was a friendly person who loved to tease everyone. He had a nickname for everyone and if he did not have one, he greeted you as a friend or relative usually with "hello bro". He was a humble man and was loved by many children in the community. His pride and joy were his grandchildren and he was always eager to show videos or pictures of them to whoever he came across.
