In Memory: Kevin McCormick, 35 In Memory: Kevin McCormick, 35

The following was submitted by family members and friends in his memory. As of Wednesday, services have not yet been arranged for McCormick.

Kevin was born in Trevose, PA, on September 19, 1976 and his family moved to Hamilton, NJ, in 1983. When he was in second grade, he told his mom he wanted to play hockey and began a lifelong love of the game. He served as goalie for the Mercer Chiefs and later at the University of Maryland. He continued to play recreationally as an adult.  

Upon graduation from the University of Maryland in 1997 with a bachelor's degree in Communications, he began a career in sales. When he joined GlaxoSmithKline, this career took him west to California. Most recently, he worked for GE Healthcare.

When he was a young boy, about six years old, he used to carry around his sister Kim's red-haired, green-eyed doll, calling her "his wife." He met his beautiful red-haired, green-eyed wife, Jennifer, while on a business trip in 2002. They married three years later in Ashland, OR.  He was a devoted and loving husband who loved his wife Jennifer more than anything.  

He and Jennifer visited Glenwild Lake (GWL) in 2003 and fell in love with the lake immediately. During their first visit, they made an offer on a house and soon after made the move east from California.

He quickly became an active member of the GWL community, serving on the board of directors and various committees, as well as manning the rescue boat for the sailing club. He was an amazing friend and neighbor, always the first to lend a hand to anyone in need. You would be hard-pressed to find anyone on the lake who hasn't had a piece of furniture moved, boat retrieved, or grocery bag carried by Kevin. He had a carpenter's hands and an engineer's mind for home improvements, most recently restoring his beautiful boathouse.  

He loved sports and the outdoors. In addition to hockey, he was a gifted golfer, ran a Fantasy Football league and enjoyed boating and camping with his friends. He had a great sense of humor and was always smiling. He got along with everyone and made a point of establishing a unique relationship with each individual. He took the time to get to know each and every person he encountered. 

Kevin lived and loved life to the fullest. He worked hard, played hard and did everything with a passion. There is truly no one else like him and he will always be lovingly remembered and forever missed.
