He is survived by Beth Schmidt, Ann Gamber, Jerry, Emmett and Greg McCormick. For more than 50 years, John sold commercial plumbing in the five state area as owner of the McCormick Sales Company. John loved mowing his lawn on his John Deere Tractor, boating on Lake Minnetonka, and spending time with his family. He was known for the Irish gift of gab, and in his later years, he could be found visiting with people in the lobby of Folkstone or walking the streets of Wayzata. He would spend most afternoons at McCormick’s Irish Pub, sipping coffee and talking to the many patrons. His nephew Tim McCormick, wife Patty and the entire staff at McCormick’s were very good to him and everyone called him Uncle John. It became his home away from home.
