In Memory: Kevin McCormick, 35

McCormick served on Bloomingdale lake community's board of directors.

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.

I am deeply saddened by the loss of Kevin. I wish to express my condelences to Jennifer and their family as well as the Glenwild Lake community. I didnt know Kevin well, although I had the opportunity to meet him last year at a gathering. While mingling with 30 or so people, I must say Kevin's prescence certainly was remembered by me. He took the time to speak with me about town issues. He told me the story of how he met Jennifer. He enthusiastically told me the story of how he feel in love with the Glenwild Lake community and our town. I could immediately tell he was a man with great passion and love of life. Our community has suffered a great loss and will forever remember Kevin. It is now time to remember Kevin's life and lend support to Jennifer, their family and friends as I know our community will do. May Kevin rest in peace. Mayor Jonathan Dunleavy

The tragic and sudden loss of Kevin has impacted us all. Kevin was a good man, with a special love of life. I was lucky enough to get to know Kevin over the last 6 months, and I count my blessings for the time I was able to get to work with him. I just wish I had more time to to spend with him, as many of us do, but his spirit will live on with us. In the last 6 months at GE Healthcare, Kevin accomplished a ton. He was awarded "Rookie of the Year" for his work last year, and had performed so well that he was in the running with the top 10 sales performers in our business to win an all expense paid trip to London see the Summer Olympic Games. Kevin will always be a winner in my mind, and he will be dearly missed by the GE family. Rest in peace my friend! Bob Moore
