Albert McCormick

McCormick, Albert
Albert Jerome McCormick died early on May 19, after a short stay in the Fredericton hospital. He was 82 years old. The cancer was swift.
Al leaves behind his wife, Marguerite (McCarthy), in their hometown of Woodstock, five children, 13 grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.
Born on July 21, 1933, in Grand Falls, ‘Grampy’s’ life spanned nine decades. He said the time of his birth in rural New Brunswick was, “so different from now, it is almost unimaginable.”
He grew up on a farm, which fed the family, when cash was rare and people bartered. Al was a Christian, who believed going to church should feel good. He rejected dogma and guilt and instead carried an open and inquisitive mind.
Marguerite and Al met first as children in Grand Falls then grew to become husband and wife. His career was varied, from mechanics and sales, to business ownership and transport management.
As a young couple, Marguerite and Al settled on Green Street in Woodstock to raise a family. They later welcomed grandchildren and great-grandchildren into that home. A fisherman and hunter, Al found solace outdoors catching food, a love he passed on.
Just a few weeks ago, he said a life lived has highs and lows, “but for me, there has been much more good than bad.”
A man of reason and measured judgment, Albert McCormick will be missed and often remembered. His sayings and ways will carry on in the large family he helped create.
There will be a celebration of Al’s life in the near future, at a time his whole family can come together. www.scottfh.com
