I typically do not bring personal concerns to this blog, but I would greatly appreciate prayers for the soul of my father who passed away on Friday. His obituary is below:
Timothy Paul McCormick died January 11, 2013. He was 69 years old, and a current resident of Sterling Heights, MI. Timothy had previously lived in Warren, and was raised in Grosse Pointe. He was born March 31, 1943 in Detroit to Willard and Eleanore McCormick. Tim graduated from Grosse Pointe High School in 1961, and then graduated from Central Michigan University with a Bachelor's degree in Business Administration.
Following college, Timothy worked for Hudson's, and subsequently began a very long and successful career as a pharmaceutical sales representative for Abbott Laboratories. He was a loyal employee as his career lasted decades with Abbott Labs, and he was recognized several times for his high level of work.
Timothy loved sports. He played tennis in high school and college, and continued to play into his adult life. He also enjoyed playing golf. Tim was a die-hard Detroit Lions fan, in addition to following the Detroit Tigers and the PGA Tour. Actively following the stock market was another of Tim's hobbies.
Timothy was the loving father of Lisa Marie McCormick, Jill McCormick Page (Tim), Timothy Paul McCormick Jr. (Rakhi) and Matthew John McCormick; the beloved grandfather of Dylan, Riley, Timmy and Allie Page, Gianna and Judah McCormick; and the brother of Patrick McCormick (Darlene).
The family will receive friends on Sunday, January 13, 2013, from 2-8 p.m. at A.J. Desmond & Sons Funeral Home, 2600 Crooks Road, Troy (between Maple and Big Beaver) with a Rosary at 7 p.m.
