Patrick Mccormick

d. August 9, 2018

Patrick McCormick, 71, of Athens, passed away on Thursday, August 9, 2018 at The Villa East in Sherman surrounded by his family.

Pat was born in Springfield, IL on October 25, 1946, the son of B. Pat and Marie (Sailor) McCormick. He married Diane Hughes on November 11, 1967 at Athens Methodist Church.

He is also survived by one daughter, Mandy (Will) Tomlinson and one son, Mike (Nicole) McCormick, both of Athens; and five grandsons – Brodee, Britt, Cash, Mason and Jaxon; and five siblings, Ben (Janet deceased), Jim (Rosie), Diane (Vernie) Brown, Paul (Jody) and Carolyn McCormick-White; as well as several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by both parents and one sister, Lois Canfield.

Pat worked for IBT/Ameritech for 27 years – first as a janitor and then later as a computer room clerk. He loved his job and all he worked with.

He was also a member of the Athens VFW Post #5302.

Pat loved to go to farm sales and would always come home with a truck full of treasures. He spent a lot of time in his barn sorting his treasures!

He was in the US Army from 1967-1969 serving one year in Vietnam.

The family would like to thank all the loving people at The Villa East in Sherman for the love and care he was given for the last months of his life.
