MCCOR­MACK, Charles Fran­cis

Cape Breton Post - - Obituaries -

It is with heavy hearts that we an­nounce the pass­ing, on May 26, 2017, of Frank McCor­mack, of North Bay, ON (for­merly of Syd­ney Mines, NS).

Frank was born on De­cem­ber 13, 1945 in Syd­ney Mines, NS, the first son of Charles and Ethel MacCormick (MacNeil).

Left to cel­e­brate his won­der­ful life are, his lov­ing wife and life part­ner of 47 years, Anne Marie (nee--Keel­ing) of North Bay (for­merly of Florence, NS); their chil­dren, Troy (wife Niki) of Vir­ginia, USA; grand­sons, Ethan, Tris­tan and Ry­lan, and their daugh­ter, Tanya Dol­lar (hus­band Jeff) of Cam­bridge, ON, and grand­daugh­ters, Kealy and Rea­gan. Frank will also be dearly missed by sis­ters, Mary Ann MacCormick (hus­band Ken Cormier) of Syd­ney, NS, Cather­ine Collins (hus­band Dave) of Syd­ney Mines, and by his nieces and neph­ews. There will also be an empty place in the hearts of his bud­dies from “Knob Hill” where he was known as

‘Crown’ in his youth and with his friends and golf bud­dies at the Fox and Fiddle in North Bay.

Frank is pre­de­ceased by his par­ents, Charles and Ethel MacCormick, and by his brother, John MacCormick.

Grow­ing up he was an al­tar boy, army cadet, and avid base­ball player. He was a true Maple Leafs hockey fan and al­ways loved a good round of golf. After at­tend­ing Busi­ness Col­lege, he be­gan his ca­reer with Trans Canada Credit in Nova Sco­tia. His work took him out west to Red Deer, Al­berta and then to Sud­bury be­fore set­tling in North Bay, On­tario where he worked with Ju­tra Couri­ers un­til his re­tire­ment. Frank was a loyal Maple Leafs fan and had a pas­sion for golf, but the true love of his life was his wife, Anne Marie.

Frankie’s friendly, out-go­ing Cape Bre­ton per­son­al­ity and big smile helped him make friends eas­ily wher­ever he lived and worked. His sen­ti­men­tal and giv­ing char­ac­ter saw him of­fer up his time freely for oth­ers and made him yearn, al­ways, for news from home.

The fam­ily wishes to ex­tend spe­cial thanks to all the friends who helped out and vis­ited dur­ing Frank’s ill­ness and to the won­der­ful staff at North Bay Hos­pi­tal for their love and com­pas­sion.

A Mass to cel­e­brate Frank’s life will be held at Pro Cathe­dral in North Bay on Tues­day, May 30 at 2 p.m., fol­lowed by a light lunch gath­er­ing of friends and fam­ily in the church hall, down­stairs.

The fam­ily has asked do­na­tions be made in Frank’s mem­ory, do­na­tions be made to the Heart and Stroke Foun­da­tion, in lieu of flow­ers.

On­line con­do­lences can be made through McGuinty Fu­neral Home in North Bay at www.mcguin­ty­fu­ner­al­home.com.
