Tragedy Strikes the McKenzie Family: Here's How You Can Help

August 25, 2021

In yet another heartbreaking case of COVID-19 loss, tragedy came to the family of Cal RS frosh NT Stanley McKenzie as his father succumbed last weekend to the deadly virus.

Yesterday a gofundme page was set up to help the family in their time of need, saying:

As many friends and loved ones close to our family recently learned, we lost our dear Tony this past Saturday. The legacy he has left on our family is unmatched by any words that can be written. The love so many of you had for Tony has been felt these last few days through countless emails, texts and phone calls. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your love and support.

Tony McKenzie

Our family is truly blessed!

The coming months will surely be challenging for those closest to Tony. I ask that you kindly consider supporting Tony's immediate family through a gift of any amount through this site. I know even the smallest financial relief at this time will mean the world to the McKenzie Family.

On behalf of the entire McKenzie Family, I thank you for your love and prayers!

The senior McKenzie was the family breadwinner and his loss leaves the McKenzie family in financial straights, with their loss compounded by Stanley’s mother losing her job when she took time off to care for his father.

Bear Insider has kicked off the site’s support for the McKenzie family with a $1,000 gift. Please consider donating personally to show the family a great example of love and support during this season of sadness in their lives and let them know that the Cal family is with them in their time of need.

The thoughts and prayers of the Bear Insider community and Cal fans as a whole are behind the McKenzie family in this season of sadness. May any way we may be able to help be a blessing to the family.
