In Celebration of

Hugh McCormack

February 26, 1928 -  November 30, 2018

It is with deep sadness and heartbreak that the family of Hugh Anthony McCormack announces his passing in his 91st year on Friday, November 30, 2018. Predeceased by his parents and his first wife Marie (McInnis 1978). A beloved husband, who leaves his best friend and adoring wife Lorraine of 35 years. Hugh was a loving father of Barbara (George), Mary (Doug), Tracey, Derrick (Paula) and Michael (Lucia). He was a proud grandfather to Greg, Amanda, Stephanie, Amy, Theresa, Blair, Lolly, Alexandra, Brendan, Taylor and Quinton, along with his great grandchildren Vincent, Sydney, Addison, Nathan and Matty-Lynn.

Hugh was a loved brother of Bernadette, Ed, and John. Survived by dear sisters and brothers in law; Catherine, Rita, Patricia, Wilma, Helen, Doreen, Maurice and John. Predeceased by his parents Catherine and Albert McCormack and his siblings Joseph, Mary, Alex, Bill, Al, Ron, Robert. Also by his sisters and brothers-in-law; Bernie, Wynne, Frank, Kay, Carol, Sonny, Joanne and Carolyn.

Hugh will be dearly missed by his many nieces, nephews and close friends.

Born and raised in Glacé Bay, Nova Scotia, he was the first of the family to venture out at the age of 18 for new job opportunities in Toronto. He was a life long resident of Mississauga volunteering in many capacities. Hugh worked for Stelco Swansea for 38 years finishing his career as Assistant General Manager. He had fond memories of many a summer spent at his cottage. In later years, he spent his winters in Florida.

Hugh had a great sense of humour, kind hearted and would do anything for family or friends. He was an ardent athlete in life participating in baseball, hockey, golf and fishing. As an avid Toronto Maple Leafs Fan his greatest wish was to see them win the Stanley Cup one more time.

Uncle Hugh, your pleasant ways and kindness will be fondly remembered. Thank you for your support when I first moved to Toronto and navigated my way as a young adult. You were an amazing and fun Uncle from the first time the family joined you in Mexico and during those times you helped me look professional for all my job interviews (my shoes never looked so good). May you rest peacefully.
Love, Michelle
