    Aunt Phyllis and family; I am so sorry for your loss of a fine gentleman. My wife, Lillian, and I remember talking with him about playing hockey and how both of you loved square dancing. It made us take some classes. We may have drifted but our hearts and memories are always with you, you are in our prayers. Another angel from the greatest generation has been called home. We will miss him
    Love Mike & Lillian McCormack
