I was very fortunate to have met Mr. McCormack through the Mentor-Mentee program at the Ocean Reef Club. Through this program, I spent a lot of time with him and learned about how amazing of a man and a father he was to his wife and boys. With all that being said, he was also a friend to anyone he met. One of the most kind hearted men I’ve ever met and I’m going to miss him a lot… especially since I will be returning to Ocean Reef this season without him. His wonderful memories he has given to not just me, but to everyone, will never be forgotten. Rest In Peace and condolences to the entire McCormack family.

Mr. McCormack took me to get my first high end steak at an awesome restaurant in Chicago. He raised 3 model sons, one of which is my best friend and college roommate, Sean. I’m glad to have known Johnny Mac, and his family is in my thoughts and prayers.

I loved that man. So genuine, kind, entertaining, compassionate. Hal and I would have him spend the night occasionally when he was passing thru town, and I always enjoyed morning coffee catching up with his stories and beautiful pictures of his family. Joli- you were blessed to be able to share some lovely years with a wonderful person. We will miss him so very much. Ours hearts are aching.

Deepest condolences to Jolie, and John's family. I can safely say that of the many accomplishments you achieved in life, you were the quintessential "big man on campus" at Munster High. The rest of us 350 classmates lived in your shadow. Keep the wind behind you and sail on my friend.
