Petrolia, ON ( Change City )


Robert Barry McCormick

MCCORMICK, Robert Barry - 17 August 1938 - 04 October 2016 In loving memory of my husband, Barry, who passed away from complications due to metastatic prostate cancer and C. difficile infection on 04 October 2016. Born in Petrolia, Ontario, to Robert George and Laura Margaurite McCormick, Barry's birth announcement made front page news. Barry's early years were spent at the apartment above his father's drug store, McCormick Drug Store, where as a boy, he delivered prescriptions to local residents on his bicycle. His early friendship with Ron Loxton lasted over 68 years. Barry's passion for all things mechanical left him with a life-long hobby for the love of classic cars. Immensely proud of his Irish heritage, Barry could spin a good yarn with anyone he met, and on any topic. Left to mourn his tragic death are Heather Etches, his wife, his chosen sister Marie (Tom), and his children - Sean (Francka), Lyzanne (John), and Aaron. Also his grandchildren Zachary, Mady, and Teja. Heartfelt thanks to all those people who supported Barry and Heather during this horrendous experience navigating the health care system in Ontario. Do not go gentle into that good night, Old age should burn and rave at close of day; Rage, rage against the dying of the light. - Dylan Thomas 13155412
