In loving memory of Alan Richard McCormick 1945 – 2018 … best husband ever to Penny and dearest father to Kip and Erin.
Al passed of cancer at Brampton Civic Hospital surrounded by everyone in his immediate family. True to his unique, lovable character, right up to the end he entertained his nurses, doctors and all who visited with witty comments, making upbeat the seriousness of his situation. He was truly a one-of-a-kind person. He passionately enjoyed teaching at VMCI and SCI where he made lasting friendships with countless colleagues and students. Al lived life to the fullest, enjoying his cottage experiences most of all. Our souls are empty without him, but we know he is in a place where there is no pain or suffering. We know the angels welcomed him with open arms and his kind spirit will make Heaven an even better place. We are grateful to have had the privilege of being his family.
There will be no formal funeral. Al would not have liked a mournful ceremony. Instead, on Saturday, December 8th, there will be an in-and-out drop-in at our home in Bolton from 12 noon to 4 pm where anyone who has a moment can come and share happy memories with others who knew him. If directions are needed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for the address.
For those who may wish to send flowers, our family would like to invite donations to the Canadian Cancer Society as an alternative. Such a gift would help countless others, and Al would have appreciated that.
