American Patriotic 10


Martin J McCormack

October 2, 1943 ~ August 15, 2018 (age 74)

Martin J. McCormack, a resident of Lacey Township, passed away peacefully on August 15, 2018, at the age of 74.  

Born October 2, 1943 in Astoria, Queens, Martin graduated from St. Francis Preparatory High School in Brooklyn, NY and went on to earn a bachelors degree in Economics from Sienna College.  

He was a proud and decorated member of the US Army, earning multiple commendations for valor during his service in Vietnam.  

Martin led a successful career in investment banking for over 30 years in NYC.  

Martin was a chivalrous, companionate gentleman and enriched those around him with his kindness, generosity, and sincerity.  He had a polite, calm with a hearty sense of humor.  

A loving and devoted family man, he will be deeply missed by his surviving wife, Harriet; their 3 children and in-laws, Michael and Chia Wu, Darren and Jenna McCormack, and Megan and Will Hayes; 6 grandchildren, Ryan, Julia, Matthew, Paige, Harper, and Willow; brother, Dennis/sister-in-law Dolores; niece/nephew, Rosanne and Jay, Sommer/Dennis McCormack, and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.  The loss of Martin is immeasurable, as is the light that he leaves on his family.  

Those who knew him best will never forget his  easy going manner, his love for reading/history, and his tenacity for crossword puzzles.  

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.  and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.”  Philippians 4:6-7
