Randy Allan McCormick
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our
brother and son, Randy Allan
McCormick, 40, of Halifax, on Monday October 7, 2019 at
Northwood Care Centre, Halifax, NS. He passed away peacefully,
surrounded by his family after a long battle with
Huntington’s Disease. Randy was formerly of Springhill, NS
and Beresford, NB.
Born in Halifax, he was the son of Leonard (Randy) McCormick and the late Donna (Casey) McCormick.
Randy loved nothing more than to make people laugh and he would go to great lengths to do it. He always strived to put a smile on everyone’s face, which in turn made him happy. To know Randy was to love Randy. He meant so much to so many. He was a beloved son, brother, grandson, uncle, nephew and friend. He was also a man who enjoyed the simple things in life such as going bowling, playing mini putt, drinking strawberry milkshakes from MacDonald’s, or going to the movies but his most favourite pastime was playing video games both solo and with friends. His greatest joy though, was every moment he shared with his family and friends.
Randy is survived by his father, Randy (Judy), Beresford, NB; his sister, Shannon (Jon) Olson, Eastern Passage; niece, Emilia; Step-Grandmother, Annette Lapointe; Aunts, Ruth Clarke, Gloria (Jim) Furlong, Brenda (Jack Boss) Clarke, Deborah (Doug) Roblee, and Donna (Richard) Smith; Uncles, Harold (Tammy Brown) McCormick and David (John) McCormick; God son Jayden Gallagher, as well as many loving cousins.
Besides his mother, Donna McCormick, he was predeceased by his sister, Michelle McCormick; maternal grandparents, Garnet and Polly Clarke; paternal grandparents, Leonard and Betty McCormick; step-grandfather, Leander Lapointe; aunt, Sandra Reynolds (McCormick); uncle, Greg McCormick, as well as his maternal cousin, Ian Jackson.
