Obituary for Sean M McCormack
Sean Michael McCormack died peacefully surrounded by his loving family and friends, on November 6, 2017, at the age of 51, after a 3 year battle with cancer.
Sean was born on May 4, 1966, to Eleanore (Ryan) McCormack and James J. McCormack Jr., at St. Joseph’s Hospital, in Lowell, MA.
Sean spent his childhood years in Nashua, NH. He enjoyed family vacations at Lake Winnipesaukee and Florida. Sean held a lifelong love of the outdoors. He enjoyed hiking at Mine Falls and spent a year in Arizona exploring the Grand Canyon trails. Upon his return he enrolled at Hesser College, earning a degree in Graphic Design.
Sean was studious by nature, already immersed in the writings of philosophers, novelists and poets, by his early teens. As an avid reader, his interests included religion, spirituality, symbology and art. He loved music, played the trumpet and bass guitar, wrote music and poetry, and is remembered as a kind and caring person, especially to his mother.
Sean was predeceased by his maternal grandparents, Joseph and Kathryne Ryan, by his paternal grandparents, James J. McCormack, Sr. and Josephine McCormack, and by his Aunt Martha Frazier.
Sean is survived by his parents, Eleanore and James J. McCormack, his brother Timothy James McCormack, his wife Melissa McCormack and their two children Rory and Ally McCormack, by his brother Patrick Joseph McCormack and his wife Natsuko McCormack, many aunts, uncles and cousins, and by his cousin and best friend Cheryl Ann Grimard.
At the request of the family there will be no visiting hours. For those wishing to attend there will be a funeral mass at St. Margaret’s Church, 374 Stevens Street, Lowell, MA at 11:30 AM on November 18th. In lieu of flowers, Sean would prefer donations be sent to St. Jude’s Research Hospital for Children.
