Obituary for William C. McCormick

William 'Bill' McCormick was born February 16, 1926 to Daniel and Tressa (Meisenhelder) McCormick in Murray County, Minnesota. He was baptized February 28, 1926 at St. Columba Catholic Church in Iona, Minnesota. His family moved to Rock County in 1932. Bill attended school in Luverne. He confirmed his faith July 8, 1939 at St. Catherine Church. Prior to graduation, he was drafted into the United States Air Force where he proudly served our country in World War II. He was honorably discharged in 1946. Bill returned home to Luverne where he graduated with the class of 1947. He began his career as a highway engineer with the Rock County Highway Department in 1950. He was united in marriage to Patricia Jones on July 24, 1958 at St. Catherine Church. The couple made their home in Luverne where they raised their three boys, Thomas, Peter and Matthew. Bill retired from his engineering career in 1986 but returned to work a short time later as a surveyor for the county until 1998. Bill died Saturday, August 20, 2016 at the Sanford Luverne Hospital at the age of 90 years, 6 months and 4 days.

Bill was a faithful member of St. Catherine Church in Luverne and was a member of the Military Order of the Cootie, a subsidiary of Veterans of Foreign Wars. Throughout the years, he enjoyed his work with the county and was an avid reader and Civil War historian. For 24 years, he and Pat enjoyed annual trips to the wine country of Northern California.

He is lovingly remembered by his wife, Pat of Luverne; his sons, Thomas of Sioux Falls, Peter and his wife Kara of Sioux Falls, and Matthew and his wife Chris of Rapid City; four grandchildren, Meghan, Courtney, Connor and Shannon McCormick. He was preceded in death by his parents; and his brother, Thomas. Blessed be his memory.
