"Our hearts go out to the family. Our whole community is mourning one of our own," Kit Emory, a Bloomingdale resident, said.

McCormick's relatives shared a glimpse of his history and his passions in an informal obituary. One of his passions was hockey, and a teammate of McCormick's, Jeff Feder, on the "Bombers" team out of Hackensack said the entire team is saddened by the news of McCormick's passing.

"He was the nicest guy, full of energy and a ton of fun to be around," he said.

Another Tri-Boro Patch reader, Susan, said McCormick was a good neighbor.

"Kevin was a gentle, good-natured man...smart...dependable...funny. He was a good neighbor who made you feel you were the only person in the room when he chatted with you. He will be missed by many. May his memory be for a blessing," she commented.

Another neighbor, James Anderson, said McCormick was a social and friendly person.

"Kevin was a neighbor of mine. Didn't know Kevin well but I do know he was a very nice man. Always said hello and very friendly. I remember at one party (I had just met him) he talked to my wife and I for over an hour. When I think of GWL I think of Kevin and his presence," he said.

I can not explain how shocked and sadden I was when I learned about Kevin. Ever since I met Kevin he has remained one of the people I most looked forward to seeing when I came home from school during the summers or holidays. Kevin was such a pleasant and fun filled guy to be around and made sure everyone close to him was happy. Whether I was working for, house sitting, Grady sitting, or just simply hanging out on George Lupes dock when Kevin just happen to come over, ever time I spoke with Kevin he made me feel like a lifelong friend. Those kind of people are rare in this world and every time I pass by his house I will remember the fun times and great laughs I had with Kevin. Glen Wild lake has lost a great friend and resident. And he will always be remember and live on through his friends.

I celebrate having had the opportunity to meet and work closely with Kevin, in his latest chapter at GE. I was inspired by his energy, resourcefulness and devotion, to getting the JOB DONE. He had the perfect balance between aggressiveness & kindheartedness to make things work! I always looked forward to getting together with Kevin, for work or casual conversation as friends. Until we meet again, Rest in Peace. You will surely be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to Kevin’s wife Jen, their friends, and families.

I was so sad to hear about Kevin. He was such a nice guy and I enjoyed working with him. It is not good-bye, but we will see you later. May God Bless Kevin & his Family.

My heart goes out to all who knew and loved Kevin. He is a beautiful soul. I have nothing but great memories from our time spent together, many years ago (1999). Kevin emanated a genuine enthusiasm and passion for life. We always had a lot of fun together. I am deeply saddened to learn of his early departure. Much love to you, Kevin. Enjoy the journey.
