McCormick, K. Wayne – Age 79, Bible Hill. It is with heavy hearts that we say goodbye to a loving husband, father and grandfather on January 31, 2022 after a brief illness.
He was born on March 10, 1942 in New Glasgow, NS. He was the son of the late Peter McCormick and Mildred Mehring. He is survived by his loving wife of 57 years, Evelyn (nee Keeble); daughter, Trisha (John) MacInnes; grandchildren, Katie MacInnes and Kenny (Emily) MacInnes; sister-in-law Norma (Fred) Symes; brothers-in-law, Ross (Teresa) Keeble and Stephen Keeble also numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and long-time friends.
Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his in-laws, Arthur Keeble and O’Rena Keeble and sister-in-law, Virginia (Murray) Forbes.
Wayne was employed with Maritime Tel & Tel and retired after 25 years of service. Wayne was committed to volunteering in his community and enjoyed meeting new people. He was a life time member of the Bible Hill Kinsmen Club and recently received his 50th year award. Wayne served on the Bible Hill Village Commission for 20 years, eleven of which as the Village Chairman. He served on many boards and executive committees for numerous organizations over the years. In 2014, Wayne was named the Village of Bible Hill Representative Volunteer of the Year by the Province of Nova Scotia.
Known to most people as “Papa” Wayne, he loved spending time with his grandchildren. In the summer months, he and Evelyn spent their time at their cottage at Shortts Lake. He enjoyed swimming, boating and socializing with the neighbours. In the winter months, you would find him at the rink supporting the local hockey teams.
Our heartfelt thanks to Dr. Jamie Grandy, the staff at the Village Family Physicians, the VON Home Care and Palliative Care teams, the Doctors and Nurses at the Colchester East Hants Health Centre, EMS and the Colchester Community Funeral Home for their understanding and assistance at this difficult time.
