Bob Lived across the street from my father in Antioch. I was privileged to share time with him and his wife and feel lucky to be given the opportunity to know them and call them friends. Bob was truly an inspiration and will be missed greatly.
To an intern in the KTVU newsroom, Bob stood out both as a professional and a human being.
I always listened to you all the time, You were part of everyones life and you will be missed by all. You will live on in our life's forever. May God keep you safe.
My Heart goes out to the Family
I enjoyed your human interest stories of the lives and people of the Bay Area, May you rest in peace!
While I no longer live in the Bay Area, the people you reported about and the viewers that watched you have lost a great friend and man.
We celebrate Bob's love of sharing with others his view of our lives, our stories became his and his were told to strangers who then became aquainted with us and with Bob... His voice was ours echoing with poise, with regard and with passion... Smile on us all Bob...
I always listened to every word of the stories Bob MacKenzie told on segment 2. It was like he was talking directly to me, as if he was in my house telling the story just to me. I will miss his special way of reporting, he was one of a kind.

KTVU has lost two of its greatest writers in recent years, coincidentally both named Bob: my dear friend Bob Shaw, and now Bob MacKenzie. My condolences to Bob's family and to the KTVU News family.
thanks for your years of service on ktvu you will be missed my family sends our condolenses to your family for your loss.
Bob was my next door neighbor for many months before I realized he was Bob MacMenzie of KTVU. That shows what a humble man he was. I always enjoyed Bob's unique story telling ability, along with that unique calming voice.
My prayers are with you Miyuki.
RIP Bob your friend,
I will miss you Mr. Mackenzie...you always put a smile on my face. I could tell you were something special...
Bob is enlightening the angels now with his inspired stories. Some insightful, some poignant, some just downright hilarious. All intelligently delivered by a valued professional. The Best of the Best.
A true journalist! There's not many of them aroudn anymore. We will miss you.
Dana, we worked together at Itel Rail. Please accept my condolence. Your dad was unusual. May he rest in peace.
God Bless you Family of Mr. Mackenzie.
His death also signifies the passing of this unique form of journalism in the Bay Area. I hope many new or aspiring journalists learn a lot from Mr. Mackenzie.
You were an inspiration to many aspiring journalists, a friend to all. Rest well, Bob.

With Deepest Sympathy...
Our family will miss Bob MacKenzie and his great reporting and his great sense of humor...In loving memory of a wonderful person. We will miss you always.
Keep Reporting in Heaven. R.I.P. Bob...
I remember watching Bob MacKenzie's articulate, insightful story telling. I particularly remember a segment he did on a man who had become homeless. Bob MacKenzie gave the man dignity, humanity and respect in his story. In many ways Bob MacKenzies reporting and story telling enhanced my life. I am saddened to hear of his death.
Growing up in the Bay Area, I remember when channel 2 arrived on TV. In later years I enjoyed Bob's segment...it was always uplifting regardless of the goings on around us.
Always enjoyed watching Bob's news stories. He always had that special smile.
A brilliant man, fun to work with, easy going, loved life and a cameramans delight when it comes to expressing images. Bob always made sure you got a lunch break! A good man will be missed and looking forward to watching the Seg 2 on Sunday in memory of Bob, RIP and my condolences goes out to the family.
I met Bob years ago and thought he was one of the nicest people I'd ever met. A truly humble man.
When I worked in Oakland near the KTVU studios I saw Bob at a local restaurant with one of his colleagues. I walked up to him and introduced myself and I will never forget what a kind man that he was. I was a total stranger who approached him and he was as kind as if I knew him all of my life. He portrayed that personality on television as well and I certainly will miss him. My condolences to his wife and children and all of the members of the KTVU family.
Always enjoyed his excellent reporting on KTVU. Bob MacKenzie had a great talent. My condolences to his family and friends. He will be sorely missed.
I watched Bob for many years on TV and was always fascinated with his stories but more importantly his story telling ability. He had a way to make you feel that you were there with him or to make you feel interest in something you didn't think you were interested in. Bob was one of the good guys and will be missed.
